Listen. I know that Moana was amazing. It’s my current favorite movie. I’m sad it didn’t win. But let’s not diminish the message Zootopia was trying to convey.
Zootopia is obviously not about “validation of furries.”
Zootopia is about inclusion. Zootopia touched themes like racism and segregation. It was an animal-like representation of our human world. It tried to teach people that the fear of the unknown is, a lot of the times, a mistake.
It also taught us not to give up in our dreams and not to let ourselves judge people so easily and quickly.
Which is something that is a big problem right now.
For me, I loved Moana so much more, but that doesn’t mean that Zootopia didn’t deserve that Oscar
