Starring Jason Bateman
Premise: The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.March 4, 2015 at 11:44 am #182106
Zootopia and Moana look like really promising Disney projects so far. I’m eager for both.March 5, 2015 at 8:21 am #182107

Seems pretty early for a March release date. Probably will play before Inside OutJune 11, 2015 at 9:43 am #182113
Woah! It’s a really good teaser. The part when all the citizens enter the frame is a fest for the eyes if you like character design!August 15, 2015 at 8:57 am #182114
Lots of new info came out last night including the casting of Shakira!August 15, 2015 at 9:13 am #182115
Anyone else wondering why Shakira’s character is so overly sexualised? Especially for an animated animal!October 25, 2015 at 5:44 pm #182116

Variety: While it doesnât have quite the same breakout potential as the Mouse Houseâs past few hits, âZootopiaâ has shrewdly established both an environment that could be further explored from countless other angles (in a spinoff TV series, perhaps) and an odd-couple chemistry between Nick and Judy that carries on even after Gazelle returns for her obligatory grand finale.
The Wrap: And yet its moral ambition gives âZootopiaâ enough of a refreshing twist to stand out from the rest of the animated pack. After the animals on screen finish talking, parents and kids just might be inspired to have their own discussion about the movieâs well-intended message.
Robbie Colin: Zootropolis (aka Zootopia) is like a Richard Scarry neo-noir: think Busytown by way of Chinatown. Funny and wildly inventive.February 12, 2016 at 10:11 am #182118
Im not sure Zootopia will be oscar conender. i think this year maybe foreign animation will win like Only Yesterday from Ghibli or The Little Prince (france) , or Kubo and Two strings from Laika
