Dans un futur proche, le scientifique norvégien Jørgen Asbjørnsen met au point le downsizing (qu'on peut traduire par « réduction ») qui permet de réduire les humains à une taille d’environ 12 cm. Cette technologie irréversible de miniaturisation cellulaire doit officiellement réduire la surpopulation et promouvoir la décroissance mais est utilisée par les volontaires, des Américains de classe moyenne , pour consommer beaucoup plus (maison, nourriture, parures de diamants aux petits formats coûtant moins cher) dans des nouvelles cités sous cloche dédiées spécialement aux downsizés. Une entreprise commerciale présente ces cités avec force marketing comme des paradis terrestres du farniente et prend en charge les opérations de downsizing.

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Composed of habitat neighborhoods such as ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together — a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery. They have less than 48 hours to find a missing mammal.

Leslie Edwards (Matthew Perry), a foppish, wealthy, high-society aristocrat, and the loud, low-brow Bartholomew Hunt (Chris Farley) are competing against the renowned Lewis & Clark to be the first to chart and make it across the United States to the Pacific Ocean. In the beginning of the film, Edwards has high hopes to head the first expedition to make it across the U.S., but while he has ambition and funding, he has grown up sheltered and knows little of the wilderness he seeks to cross. To aid in his journey, he hires the services of a supposedly knowledgeable wilderness-man and tracker, Hunt, who, once they get underway, turns out to be less than advertised.
