Art of the Day #8 – Kid Friendly [Extra Long AotD]

Zootopia: Young Nick Wilde by Sa-Dui

I’ve done this enough times that I think it’s safe to call it official.  Every Art of the Day post that ends with a even number, I’ll try to incorporate some sort of theme.  And this week, we’re taking a trip back in time to when the cast of Zootopia were kids!

I just have to say, I really love Nick as a cub scout.  When he’s happy, it’s the most adorable scene in the movie.   I personally went through the whole Boy Scouts of America program, starting when I was somewhere around Nick’s age, and it was a wonderful experience.  I made some great friends, learned things I never would have considered trying, and eventually I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest honor a Boy Scout can achieve.  I remember those times with fondness, and while I didn’t always enjoy getting covered with mud or 20 mile treks, it was a great thing that I had fun doing.

So, when that scene of the movie takes a turn for the dark, it was heartbreaking.  Not only could I relate to him as he was being bullied without having any idea why (“what did I do wrong?” …oh goodness that line got to me), but to have all those future good times, friendships, skills, and memories just crushed like that?  It was a real tragedy.

Enough about that.  Get your daily dose of D’awww after the break!
