Zootopia (2016) dir.

Byron Howard and Rich Moore

It is so important to me that a kids movie had this conversation in it

This movie gave an entire generation of children a script for how to handle this issue. It showed marginalized kids that it’s okay to call people out, and gave them a script for how to do so firmly but with compassion

It also gave privileged kids a script for how to respond to being called out– which is to listen, have compassion, apologize, and never do the problematic thing again

It also managed to convey this to all the adults who brought their kids to the movies, and all the rest of us who just went because we wanted to

This scene is so important to me
