The True Life Lessons in Zootopia (Oops, Spoiler!)

This is the only movie which I spent money twice to go watch, and after seeing it two times, I decided to write something about it.

Zootopia, it’s a soft movie, but at the same time it contains a lot of energy. Every single animal in the movie makes you want to touch them. They were produced as the cutest creatures in the world, so animal lovers you might melt in two minutes after the movie starts. There are so many different characters that represent different personalities that you might find yourself in the movie It is not only a huge Hollywood movie, but it also portrays the truth of the adults’ world. These are some of the life lessons:

The desire of exploring the world

The hardest question in the world for most people is “what am I going to do in my life?” You can choose to copy and paste your parents’ living experience; it’s probably a safe way. Or you can follow your heart, to go and see what is there in the outside of the world. The desire of exploring the world happens to almost everyone in their life, to leave the place that you are most familiar with and to go somewhere where you have no idea what is going to be, to leave the conformist life to find out a better life. For the little bunny Judy, become a police officer is a dream since she was a child, but everyone feels that is impossible. However, Judy goes on the way that not a bunny tried before. After spent all the time and effort on getting stronger, she comes to the new world and purses her dream.

Is the outside of the world wonderful?

I will never forget the look that Judy has when she arrives in Zootopia, her eyes are shining and saying “I’m ready.” This is a very intriguing and complex feeling. The outside of the world is so much more wonderful than you thought it would be, but the danger and brutality are beyond your imagination as well. Your eyes, your skin, and your organs are experiencing the freshness, which continuously verifies and refreshes the fantasy you already have in your mind. You are no longer the one who you were before you arrived in this new world. Now, you need more courage, endurance and strength in order to face the new challenges.

Sweet tooth always has sweet personality

Benjamin is a leopard receptionist who works in the police office. He loves donuts and the super star gazelle. He never loses his enthusiasm and smiling face. Sometimes, I admire people who can live a life just as simple and happy as they can. Let’s get a donut and smile a bit more today.

Either die or outbreak

The assistant mayor Bellwether is my favorite character in the movie, because I love her voice and fluffy wool. She is the poor little puny sheep always being bossed by the lion mayor. But who knew at the end of the movie the meek sheep is the one who tries to change the world and no longer live under oppression. It is true that in our life there were so many events happened because those people chose not to endure anymore.

The world used to be nice to us

When we were a child, we used to believe we live in a wonderful world that is full of love and happiness, and there is no harm around us. Nick was a little righteous fox when he was a child. The day he was betrayed and jested by his friends was the day he rediscovers and reread the world, the people around him. The scene of him crying in the corner reminds us the memory which we don’t want to recall.

Zootopia is a movie that makes kids laugh and makes adults cry. I was wondering who are these people who produced such a successful work and all the ordinary but unexpected thoughts in the movie.  I just want to say thank you for the team who brought us so much pleasure of watching the movie.

Friendly reminder: there is no animation after the movie credits.

《疯狂动物城》之生活启示(剧透慎入)

这是我唯一付了两次钱去看的电影。看过两次之后,我决定为它写点什么。

《疯狂动物城》,这是一部柔软的电影,但却充满了满满的正能量。每一个动物都让你忍不住想去摸摸它。他们被创造成全世界最可爱的形象,所以作为动物爱好者的你将在开场的两分钟之后完全融化。整个影片中有如此之多个性不同的角色,让你会误以为这不但是一部好莱坞电影,更是真实世界的一部分。这里将和大家分享一些影片给我的启示:

对探索这个世界的渴望

对于大部分人来讲,最难的问题在于“我要怎样的人生?”保险的方法是复制粘贴父母的生活经历。或者你也可以追随自己的心愿,去看看外面的世界。对于每个人来讲,对外界的渴望都或多或少地发生着,离开自己熟悉的地方,去完全未知的国度探险;离开自己的舒适的生活,去找寻更棒的生活体验。对于小小的兔子朱迪来说,成为一个警察是她从孩童时的梦想,尽管所有人都认为这梦想遥不可及。然而,朱迪选择了兔子家族无人涉足过的道路。她用尽所有的时间和经历去变得更加强大,她来到了新大陆去实现自己的梦想。

外面的世界很美么?

我永远都不会忘记朱迪初达Zootopia的表情,她的双眼闪闪发光仿佛在说:“我准备好了。”这是非常有趣且复杂的感觉。外面的世界如此繁华美丽,比想象中还要美。同样超出想像的是这世界的危险和残忍。你的眼睛,皮肤,你的身体正在享受着新鲜感,这感受不断地证实和刷新你头脑中的想像。你不再是那个初来乍到的自己,你需要更多的勇气,耐力和力量来面对新的挑战。

爱吃甜食的人脾气都不会太差

本杰明是一位猎豹接待员,他最大的爱好是甜甜圈和大明星瞪羚。他永远都保持着最大的热情,常年笑脸迎人。有时,我只是很喜欢身边那些把生活过的简单快乐的人们。让我们犒劳自己一个甜甜圈,每天微笑多一点。

要么死,要么爆发

市长助理领头羊小姐是我全片中最喜欢的角色。我爱她的声音和柔软的羊毛。这个可怜弱小的小绵羊总是被狮子市长呼来喝去。但是谁想到影片的最后,这只柔弱的小绵羊却是那个立志改变世界,免受压迫的人。正是由于很多人选择不再忍受,才让这世界有许多改变。

这世界曾友善待我

当我们都是孩子的时候,我们看到的是充满了爱与幸福的美好世界,身边没有人会伤害我们。尼克曾经也是一只充满了正义感的小狐狸。然而当他被同龄人所背叛和欺凌的时候,他学会了重新去认识和解读身边的人。尼克在墙角哭泣的样子提醒了我们封尘已久的回忆。

《疯狂动物城》是一步让孩子欢笑,成人落泪的电影。在电影的过程中,我不断猜想着是谁创造出了如此成功的作品却又立出如此出乎意料的新意。现在我只想谢谢让观影过程如此享受的幕后工作者们。

友情提示:片尾无彩蛋。
