Trivia: It is revealed in the special features of the Blu Ray that there was a cut scene during the briefing at the police station, in this scene Chief Bogo tells the officers 'Real cops suck it up, they are tough and stay tough' Now this possibly makes a small error continuity make sense, during this scene in the final film we see the clock in the background go from 8:30 to 8:33 in less than three minutes.

Zootopia mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During Judy's chase, Duke Weaselton falls beside the large donut sign and the bag filled with flower bulbs lands on the street near the sign, but in the shot of Judy running down the street yelling, "Stop right there" the bag has moved much further up the road beside double yellow road lines, but after Weaselton kicks the donut and it rolls down the street, the bag has vanished from both areas, though the bag reappears after Judy saves Fru Fru.

More quotes from Zootopia

Question: I have two questions about Duke Weaselton. 1) Is he the same weasel who was a childhood friend of Gideon Gray's? 2) Despite Judy capturing him early on, how did he get out of prison? If he was released from prison then why?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: 1. No, it's not, that is Travis. The weasel who was a childhood friend of Gideon has brown fur, but when officer Hopps chases the Duke, the Duke's fur colour is brownish orange. 2. The Duke has gone through the period of his prison time, so he did get out - maybe the Zootopia laws are different than ours.
