Next year, Walt Disney Animation Studios will debut two very unique new adventures, with the animal-centric Zootopia hitting on March 4 and the Polynesian Princess fairytale Moana opening November 23rd. Today, Disney invites us into Zootopia with a beautiful piece of concept art that shows off this unique city unto itself. The comedy teams Bolt and Tangled director Byron Howard with Wreck-It Ralph director Rich Moore, with Jared Bush co-directing.
Zootopia is a modern mammal metropolis 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. Zootopia will be Disney's 55th animated movie. It arrives in theaters next spring. Before then, grab your badge and get ready for one wild mystery as you enter a world like no other:
