I LOVE THIS MOVIE. Not because of the furry thing. I've always liked animals or anthropomorphic animals in animation movies. I like all the detail and the expressions of the characters. It's one of my all time favourite movies and I watch all kind of movies ^_^

Oooh I didn't know it'd have a sequel. I'm looking forward to that.

But Zootopia was a good film, and I'm sure some of the hype about it in the fandom could be because it brought in new people wanting to be furries.

Does no one remember Disney's Robin Hood or even Aristocats? I don't see the issue. I loved Zootopia for the story, it shouldn't matter that they are animals. The theme was really about social stigmas regarding to race.

It was obvious that Disney was marketing it with a furry audience in mind. And if you make a major motion picture with a bunch of talking, bipedal animal characters, it's pretty much a given that it's going to attract furries like a swarm of Alaska mosquitoes to bare flesh.

There are not enough furries out there to make it to, let alone pass, the billion dollar mark. This pervasive idea that these some of these animal people films are geared toward us, uh, I mean them is ridiculous.

Have you even watched the first trailer for it? It was most certainly marketed with furries in mind. That doesn't mean that they weren't also marketing it to the broader audience of kids and their families, but we were most certainly a factor in their marketing strategy. A Disney executive (or an agency working on behalf of Disney) even asked furries to help them promote it.

They obviously had no clue that the fandom does not have that kind of power. Unless someone higher up hated the project and tried to tank it.

you realize both of those articles more or less heavily focus on the fetish side of the fandom?

both articles basically imply the fandom is entirely sexual in nature, and that's the reason Disney reached out. I highly doubt that was why, and I doubt their jounralistic integrity as well by showing a refusal to do proper research when writing an article.

I've seen the movie twice and I don't see why there's all this hype about it. Don't get me wrong, the movie is well made but why are people so latched onto this movie and can't let go?
Now I kinda got obsessed with the movie and watching it 61 times, it definetly showed it. Lol

Honestly, I couldn't get invested in it. A good break from the mainstream, but I didn't see anything special in Zootopia (maybe I'm a little too much of a movie critic? I know my Tech Theater class ruined plays for me, but... IDK).

I thought Zootopia was thought-provoking and fun, and that the world-building was excellent, but I actually like Moana better.
