Role in the Film
Finnick's van is first seen near the middle of the film. After buying a Jumbo-pop for Nick and his "son" at Jumbeaux's Café, Judy Hopps visits Sahara Square to continue with her meter maid duties. In the windshield of a car, she spots Finnick loading jars of red juice into the van. She sees Nick on the roof of a building melting the Jumbo-pop she had just purchased into the jars. She becomes surprised when she sees the "son" driving the van and not the "parent".
Confused, Judy trails the van to Tundratown, where she watches Nick and Finnick freezing the juice into little paw-shaped ice pops. Judy continues to follow the pair around Zootopia, learning about their scam. After finishing their scam and collecting his share of money, Finnick gets in his van and says a violent farewell to Nick, before driving away.
Later, near the climax of the film, Judy seeks out the van to ask Finnick to help her find Nick. She locates it in an alley in Sahara Square and asks Finnick for help, a request he obliges.
