Animals in film, however, is a big topic. The way they are anthropomorphized, even when they are live-action “subjects” versus a live-action protagonist. The two films Free Willy vs Life of pi begs the question of what we expect out of animals and the way we ignore their true nature. Of course, training animals to behave in a way that “cajoles” the audience into believing that a killer whale would behave the way that the fictional whale behaves in the film is dependent on what has progressively been considered an inhumane (and dangerous) practice. This all ties together, so I think if you combine your research with basic concepts of narrative structure and audience expectations of characters (even if they are non-speaking animals) could give you the focus that you need to fully develop an argument. As indicated in my example above, it would likely make sense to focus on one or two films to prove your point, especially if you can get detailed information on how the animals were trained for the film.*Combine research with basic concepts of narrative structure and audience expectation of characteristics
