Why is Zootopia rated PG? Zootopia is rated PG by the MPAA for some thematic elements, rude humor and action.

Violence: This animated movie portrays animal characters with human traits, sometimes in violent situations. Characters engage in verbal confrontation and there are infrequent portrayals of hand-to-hand and weapons violence. A character representing a mafia boss threatens to “ice” other characters—in this case that means throwing them into an icy lake. As a child, a small character is bullied by a larger character. Characters are often in peril and a couple of scenes depict very vicious animals that may frighten young children. A male character with only one eye explains how he lost the other in a confrontation. Infrequent startling “jump” moments occur. Some characters, including one who is a hero role model, admit to crimes of not paying taxes or selling bootleg movies.

Sexual Content: An inner city “oasis” has animals doing yoga without clothes on (within the context of a movie, where all the other animals are drawn in clothing, the contrast is intended to be humorous): While the animals are seen in awkward poses (like their posteriors in the air), there are no explicit visual depictions. In other scenes a joke is made about bunnies “multiplying”. One female character is drawn in a way that makes her look sexy.

Language: Two mild, rude words for flatulence and buttocks are heard. A character exclaims, “Sweet cheese and crackers.” Characters infrequently call each other derogatory names.

Alcohol / Drug Use: The movie depicts a poison being manufactured from a plant.

Home Video Notes: Zootopia
Release Date: 7 June 2016
Zootopia releases to home video (Blu-ray Combo Pack) with the following special features:

- Zoology: The Roundtables – Ginnifer Goodwin hosts an in-depth look at the movie’s characters, animation, environments and more. The artists at Disney Animation give a rare and in-depth look at the complexities of bringing an all-animal world to life from the ground-breaking technology behind the characters’ fur and clothing to the varied and vast environments of Tundratown, Sahara Square and the Rainforest District as well as the deep thought and research given to bringing 64 unique animal species to life through animation.

- The Origin of an Animal Tale – Follow the story’s development from its origins to a big story shift that turned the film upside down. In this feature-length documentary, filmmakers give a candid look into the difficulties of creating the story of Zootopia and the bold decision to switch the main character late in the production process, putting one resolute rabbit center stage.

- Research: A True-Life Adventure – The filmmakers traveled the globe to find inspiration for the diverse characters and amazing city of Zootopia. They reflect on the importance of research and how a deep dive into animal behavior at Disney Animal Kingdom theme park and a deep immersion into animal society on the African savanna shaped and inspired the characters of Zootopia and changed the filmmakers’ lives forever.

- Z.P.D. Forensic Files – Find the movie’s hidden Easter Eggs. Every city has its hidden gems, especially when it has been created by the filmmakers of Disney Animation who love nothing more than sprinkling hidden references to some of Disney’s greatest animated features throughout the story.

- Scoretopia – Academy Award®-winning composer, Michael Giacchino spotlights five of cinema’s greatest percussionists and how they brought an organic, animalistic sound to his powerful and emotional music score.

- Deleted Characters – Directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore introduce citizens of Zootopia who did not make the final cut.

Deleted Scenes:
- Alternate Opening – Young Judy Hopps rescues a fellow classmate and realizes she can reach beyond a life in carrot farming to a future in law enforcement.
- Wild Times! Pitch – Nick desperately pitches the bankers of Zootopia on funding Wild Times!, an amusement park made exclusively for the predators of Zootopia and a sure-fire, money-making scheme for Nick and his friends. 
- Alternate Homesick Hopps – After a frustrating first day on the force, Judy has a conversation with her parents.  See how this scene changed from a heartfelt conversation with her parents to tough love when her parents discover their daughter is only a meter maid and not a “real cop.”
- Detective Work – Judy borrows a fellow police officer’s computer to conduct research, which turns out to be no small task.
- Alternate Jumbo Pop – In this early version of the story where Nick was the main character, the filmmakers and Jason Bateman were able to take hustling to a new level.
- Hopps’ Apartment – When Judy’s entire family pays her a surprise visit they are shocked to discover the company she’s keeping.
- The Taming Party – In this emotional clip from an early version of “Zootopia,” Judy attends her first “taming party” and gains a deeper understanding of the plight of the predator.
