Zootopia Movie Quotes

Zootopia movie quotes follow one rookie cop looking to prove herself on the job in a land where animals rule. The animated adventure comedy was written by Jared Bush and Phil Johnson using a story they created with Byron Howard, who also directs, and Rich Moore. Released by Walt Disney Animation Studios, Zootopia opened in theaters on March 4, 2016.

In Zootopia, Officer Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) is the first bunny to be appointed to the Zootopia Police Department. After a failed arrest of criminal Duke Weaselton (voiced by Alan Tudyk), Hopps is placed on parking duty by Police Chief Bogo (voiced by Idris Elba). But Bogo gives her one chance to make it or break it, in finding the missing husband of Mrs. Otterton (voiced by Octavia Spencer).

So Officer Hopps teams up with an unlikely partner, con artist Nick Wilde (voiced by Jason Bateman) as Nick could be a key witness in the disappearance. The pair work to solve the case on an extremely tight deadline, something that brings them in contact with a number of fun characters (including voices by J.K. Simmons, Tommy Chong, Jenny Slate, Shakira, and Kristen Bell) and something that proves to be incredibly difficult.

Zootopia brought some animated fun to theaters which were already showing other films such as Triple 9, Gods of Egypt, Deadpool, Zoolander No. 2, and Hail, Caesar!.

    Not About How Badly You Want Something

    Chief Bogo: It's not about how badly you want something. It's about what you are capable of.

    Chief Bogo gives some harsh truth to how success works. Simply wanting something is not enough, you have to also be capable of providing results.

    Have a Donut, Copper

    Officer Judy Hopps: Sorry, coming through. Excuse me. Pardon me. ... Hey, stop right there!
    Duke Weaselton: Have a donut, copper!

    A fierce chase after suspect Duke Weaselton is quite the scary incident for those in Zootopia, especially those who come under foot during the pursuit. Lucky for Officer Hopps, there's a giant donut in town there to help her apprehend the suspect.

    You Bunnies, So Emotional

    Officer Judy Hopps: I am a real cop!
    Nick Wilde: Never let them see that it gets to you. You bunnies, so emotional.

    Feeling down, Officer Hopps unloads her emotions on Nick Wilde. He gives her a quick pep talk, then follows up with a generalized opinion about bunnies.

    Nick Wilde: Hey Flash, want to hear a joke?
    Officer Judy Hopps: No!
    Flash: Sure
    Nick Wilde: What do you call a three-humped camel?
    Flash: I don't... know...
    Nick Wilde: Pregnant
    Flash: Ha... Ha... Ha...
    Officer Judy Hopps: Haha, yes, very funny! Can we please just focus on the task?
    Flash: Hey...
    Officer Judy Hopps: Wait, wait, wait!
    Flash: Pricilla...
    Pricilla: Yes... Flash...
    Flash: What... do... you call...
    Officer Judy Hopps: A three-humped camel? Pregnant!
    Flash: Three
    Officer Judy Hopps: Okay, great, we got it!
    Flash: Humped...
    Officer Judy Hopps: Hurry! We've gotta beat the rush hour! And it's night!?

    When Officer Hopps needs to trace a license plate, she and Nick head to the DMV. Similar to real life, that simple task takes forever as the office is literally staffed with sloths.
