What is the plot of the Movie?
Zootopia is a gleaming metropolis populated by anthropomorphic mammals, divided in several districts including Sahara Square, Tundratown, Little Rodentia, and the Rainforest District. One day, Judy Hopps, a rabbit from rural Bunnyburrow, fulfills her dream of joining the Zootopia Police Department as the first rabbit officer, however she is regularly assigned parking duty by Chief Bogo. During one of her shifts, she is manipulated by Nick Wilde, a con artist fox. Hopps unlawfully arrests Duke Weaselton, a weasel, and is reprimanded by Bogo until Mrs. Otterton, an otter, arrives pleading help on locating her missing husband, one of the many recently missing mammals. To Bogo’s dismay, Hopps volunteers and agrees to resign if she cannot solve the case within 48 hours. With Wilde as a key witness of Mr. Otter’s disappearance, Hopps locates the fox and coerces him to assist her with the investigation lest he be charged with tax evasion, which he openly admitted and Judy recorded with her carrot pen.
