Disney balks at copyright infringement claims concerning Zootopia animation

I understand that it takes time and quite a bit of legal finesse to organize a lawsuit, though my brow slightly furrows when I hear of a bg project getting slammed with legal mumbo jumbo only after it's taken home a major award ( in this case I'm referring to ZOOTOPIA winning the 2017 Oscar for Best Animated Feature).

New documentary shows how Disney constructed their Zootopia

ZOOTOPIA really took a lot of viewers by surprise when it arrived in theaters. Many were expecting a cutesy and sometimes funny film meant for families, but very few anticipated such a deep film from Disney that dealt with issues of race and bias and... yeah, it's a pretty loaded film.
