Zootopia is adored by babies, kids, teens, parents, and (probably) grandparents alike.
Because the film is both a cute story about cute animals, all while allegorically and masterfully weaving in more complicated themes, like race.
Which is pretty loaded stuff already. But a deleted scene from the original storyboard that was featured on the DVD, now uploaded online, is heavier and darker than anything anyone could have fathomed.
In the clip, named "The Taming Party," Officer Judy and Nick escape capture and end up at a commencement event.
There they witness a cub being initiated into adulthood ("a big bear") being given a shock collar.
And reciting a pledge that begins, "With this collar Zootopia welcomes you."
There is a moment of hesitation from the initiator, the cub's father, before he reluctantly locks the collar around his cub. Clapping and celebration ensues.
But when the cub gets too excited, the collar shocks him. His father is heartbroken, and the crowd is left silent.
The scene ends with Judy looking back at, and noticing, the shock collar around Nick.
Aaaaaaaaaaaand human heart is officially in stomach.
