Welcome to a city of the future where mammals have evolved to the level of humans.  On a basic level, mammals are still divided into predator and prey, but modern times have all but eradicated such primal instincts.  So why are predators randomly killing other mammals?   Judy Hopps, a rabbit who dares to be the first of her kind to join the ZPD, is determined to crack the case.   She enlists Nick Wilde, a fox with shifty genes and good intentions who joins her as they follow a trail of conspiracy, which can only lead to one place.  But they must get there before the primeval forces of nature rip Zootopia to shreds.  A Walt Disney masterpiece.  Rated PG (108 min.) mike laib 2018.

Classroom Tips:

1. Preview both the movie and its lesson. Lesson and movie are in the same sequence.
2. Within the lesson, decide which quotes, questions, and vocabulary to focus on. Highlight or cut-and-paste content you plan to use.
3. Estimate how you'll use available time for both watching and discussing the movie.
4. Remember: Most questions on the lesson are easy for a native speaker of English to answer, so the movie itself is the answer key.
5. Assessments are at http://www.moviesgrowenglish.com/Assessments.html.
