Research takes a HUGE part into making Disney films and was a major factor in Zootopia. While much of the team was in researching animals in Africa, they noticed a certain water hole was used by all animals of all species. The watering hole was much like Switzerland. It was a neutral place, a place where animals could come, drink water and feel safe. There was no fighting at the watering hole but a place of solitude, and co-existing with one another. This concept led film makers to the idea of creating a city much like that watering hole.

“Did you know Judy Hopps was not the initial main character of Zootopia? In fact, the story first surrounded that of Nick Wilde living in a city where “preyers”, such as himself, had to wear special collars for restraint. One initial scene from that story line, showed a young “prey” boy excited to become of age and receive his collar, as his Dad looks on in heartbreaking sadness. The movie totally shifted focus when filmmakers decided to switch the main character from Nick to a more upbeat and lovable Judy.
