The development of narrative art and narrative skills often reflects the course of film development from an important aspect. This way of thinking determines the external form and narrative features of animated films to a certain extent. Obviously, animated films pay more attention to the cultural connotation of human commonness in their ideological appeal, because as the main audience of animated films, their ideology shows less differences and more universality compared with the adult world. The success of the animated film "Zootopia" can be interpreted from many aspects. From the standpoint of children's appreciators, its rich and profound growth implication is worth exploring with care. This paper attempts to use narratology theory to analyze the narrative strategy of the film from different aspects in order to provide reference for the development of Chinese animation industry.
