Er der nogen havpattedyr i Zootopias verden?

Zootopiens verden er et sted, hvor pattedyr er udviklet til det punkt, hvor de fredeligt kan eksistere sammen med hinanden.

Ekskluderer otters og flodheste , er der nogen store marine pattedyr (f.eks hvaler, sæler, delfiner) i filmen? Og hvis ikke, hvorfor ikke?

Ingen.

Den Disney Wikia indeholder en komplet liste over alle dyrearter, der vises i Zootopia. Jeg vil ikke kopiere det her, da det er latterligt langt, men det er nok at sige det ( dristigt vægt min):

According to Disney, the only mammals that do not appear in Zootopia at all are primates (monkeys, apes, and lemurs), domesticated dogs and cats, and marine mammals (whales, dolphins, pinnipeds, etc). This may have been due to the fact that Disney considers primates too similar to humans, dogs and cats too domesticated (though dingoes (descendants of dogs gone feral) are featured in the book The Stinky Cheese Caper), and marine mammals too difficult to accommodate in the setting.

Vi kan se nogle af filmskabernes motivation til at træffe denne beslutning i dette interview med Andrew Millstein, præsident for Walt Disney Feature Animation (vægt min):

BS: From what I have seen, there are no reptiles or birds in the movie; it was mammals except for humans and apes. Was there a reason for cutting out other species?

AM: From Byron and Richs’ perspective they just wanted to limit the scope of the world and they had to make a choice and they handled it that way. But you are right, the reptiles and birds are not there. It was just an issue of ‘where do you draw the line?’ Essentially, for the characters it made the most sense for the story.

Den samme begrundelse kan bruges til at forklare fraværet af havpattedyr såvel som krybdyr og fugle. Se også følgende billede tweeted af direktøren, Byron Howard :

Tak til @Valorum (OP) for at finde det ovennævnte interview og billede.
