Discussion Questions for “Zootopia”

Write a paragraph or two in response to each of the following. Note that some of these questions are hard. The answers might not be obvious or might require you to explain in some detail to justify your answer. Do your best. You’ve got this!

What is the Call to Adventure that starts the hero’s quest of Judy Hopps, the first bunny to join the Zootopia police?

Does Judy receive a Talisman? If so, from whom and what is this special object? How does it help her on her journey?

Discuss the development of Judy’s relationship with Nick Wilde. How do they meet? What is their initial connection? What lessons does she learn from Nick? What changes occur to make Nick become more of a sidekick figure?

What is Judy’s Final Test of Worthiness? How does it affect her status as a hero and/or as a police officer?

What is Judy’s Ultimate Boon? How is this reward at the end of her quest different from what she might have expected?
