In 1945, George Orwell published Animal Farm, an allegorical novel that used animals to depict issues in his society.

Animal Farm was an allegory of George Orwell's society, just like Zootopia is an allegory of our society. Both deal with issues relevant to the societies they were written for. Of course, the film is first and foremost a cute kids' movie, but it deals with some very complicated and intense themes for a kids' movie about talking animals.
