Zootopia vs Secret Life of Pets

We watched Secret Life of Pets a couple of weeks ago. I think it fell very short of Zootopia. Kevin Hart yelling only does so much for me.

Disney Hit With Lawsuit Claiming 'Zootopia' Ripped Off 'Total Recall' Writer
In the lawsuit, Disney is alleged to have a track record of ripping off work including The Lion King, Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Up, Inside Out and more.

"They did it with Zootopia, too, when they copied Gary L. Goldman’s Zootopia," states the complaint. "Twice — in 2000 and 2009 — Goldman, on behalf of Esplanade, pitched Defendants his Zootopia franchise, which included a live-action component called Looney and an animated component called Zootopia. He provided a treatment, a synopsis, character descriptions, character illustrations and other materials. He even provided a title for the franchise: 'Zootopia.' Instead of lawfully acquiring Goldman’s work, Defendants said they were not interested in producing it and sent him on his way. Thereafter, consistent with their culture of unauthorized copying, Defendants copied Goldman’s work. They copied Goldman’s themes, settings, plot, characters, and dialogue — some virtually verbatim."

The complaint even illustrates alleged copying of artwork:

That's pretty sketchy Disney. Zootopia went through a drastic rewrite halfway through production, I wonder if that will hurt or help the case.

Too bad this will have zero impact on Disney once this is over, even if they lose.

Exactly. It'll likely be an out of court settlement and everything will go on as normal.

I care non if it's copied or not, I will still love it lol. I mean if it was, that's terrible on their part, but it doesn't impact my love for the movie or any of their movies.. I know, shame on me.
