You would think that a movie with a great original concept and from the guys behind Wreck-It Ralph and Tangled would be getting a lot more buzz, but yet nobody seems to be making much of a fuss for Disney’s Zootopia. And because of that, I completely missed this new trailer for the upcoming star-studded animated film when it was released last week.
I was lucky enough to see some behind the scenes footage and hearing Disney speak about the movie at last year’s Annual Disney Showcase, and really liked what I saw, so I’m actually looking forward to this, and this funny and charming new trailer is certainly not dulling my enthusiasm one bit.
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 (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) 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 (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.
Along with the new trailer, Disney also recently released a series of posters that parody some of 2015’s biggest movies in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World, Fifty Shades of Grey, Ex Machina, Straight Outta Compton and Cinderella.
Zootopia was directed by Byron Howard (Tangled, Bolt) and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph), and stars the voice talents of Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Shakira, Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons, Nate Torrence, Jenny Slate, Tommy Chong, Octavia Spencer, and Alan Tudyk. It is scheduled for release on March 4, 2016.
