The Wilde Family by KungFuFreak07 The Wilde Family by KungFuFreak07

H o m e,
we’re savage high.
Come,
we finally cry.

The last Zistopia update made me use up all the tissue I had so now I have to go buy some more. 


(Pst. Look closely. They're suffering.)

Whether it was in the original, dystopian version of the story, or in the final theatrical cut, Disney's writers and directors did a tremendous job of presenting some touchy subjects in a different way.

Prejudice against different species because of how their ancestors may have behaved in the past, as opposed to letting individual actions be a reflection of that particular individual?  Seems unfair and nonsensical.  And yet there's a parallel to that in the real world.

The shock collars around the necks of Nick's parents may as well be guns pressed right against their heads. :hmm:

Yes, very well put.
I'm glad they changed the story. However, I'm intrigued by the original idea, which is why I love this webcomic.

I know everybody likes the tame collar idea but honestly, I am glad that Disney scrapped that version of Zootopia. According to them, that script was too mean-spirited. Judy was unsympathetic and less likeable in that version-of course she supports predators wearing the tame collars! I checked the other Zistopian stories, thinking they could make Judy likeable but apparently not. (One guy wrote a fanfiction where Judy disliked the tame collars and willingly helped Nick but he discontinued it). Another online source said Zistopian made the crew want Nick and Judy to leave Zootopia. That wasn't their goal. Their goal was to have Nick and Judy save Zootpoia, not flee from it. I understand because when I watched Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, the movie made me want Sunset Shimmer to transfer high schools instead of trying to befriend the kids she used to bully. They also explained that the tame collars represented the racism of the past and they wanted to address today's racism. Had Zootopia been released in the '30s, '40s,  and '50s, I think Disney would add in the tame collars. Overall, Disney wanted to talk about modern racism rather than racism from the past. Therefore, I am glad with the final cut we received.

I totally agree with you, and I'm so glad we have this version of Zootopia. Had they gone with the TAME collars, the film wouldn't have been as successful as it is. 
The whole concept of the collars is quite intriguing to me and many others who follow the Zistopia comic simply because it's a 'what could have been' type of story. I wouldn't have Zootopia any other way than the film we have now, but I'm still fascinated by the collar idea and how everything would have been so much more tragic.
I'm the type of person who likes angst, which is why I'm so in love with the Zistopia AU, though I understand why some people wouldn't like it as it is quite a dark version.

YES. I remember I read a comic some time ago. I can't remember the name or who did it, but Nick had some sort of weapon tested on him (by Judy) and he began hallucinating parts of Zistopia, or what could have been. It was a great comic and really touching in the end when he gives Judy a big hug. :heart:

It is really depressing to think this could have been Zootopia. Though, something about the collars intrigue me, which is why I am very interested in the Zistopia AU. 
Thank you very much! :heart:

I would love to know more, too. Thankfully, in the Zistopia web comic, we are shown Nick's backstory regarding his parents (which I tried to show in the reflections on the glass of this picture). It is very similar to what the directors of Zootopia planned in the original story for the film with Nick's dad being a tailor and being arrested when Nick was young. 
Thank you! :heart:

This is fanart for a web comic called Zistopia where predators had to wear shock collars for the prey's safety and takes place in the 1970s. Nick's dad was arrested for removing the collar of a female predator who was about to give birth because it was hurting her. Nick's mom is devastated for what happened to her husband. Nick, all grown up, is dealing with a emotional struggle along with the rejection of his mother when he goes back to see her after an investigation with Lieutenant Judy. I don't want to spoil anything for you if you plan to read the comic. You should totally check it out! (:
