    Stupid blog.
    Zootopia was not centred around idris, he was just a supporting character. The fox and rabbit were the leads.

  7. chris January 9, 2017

    this is so stupid. Idris Elba’s zootopia ??? never knew he was on this..
    he’s not even leading role in the movie..

    • Fifi January 9, 2017

      Who was the rabbit’s boss? Who was in put in charge of the police Animals? Idris character is central to the plot so don’t hate.
