Let me first apologize for the horrible “Zoo Year” joke in the title. Disney’s marketing team has been shoving the whole Zoo Year’s Eve thing down our throats. At some point you are just forced to swallow, you know?
Anyway, the second trailer for Zootopia has been released, and it features the original song ‘Try Everything’ co-written by Sia and performed by Shakira, which sounds like the perfect combination for a Disney movie. The film is described as a “3D computer-animated action buddy comedy noir adventure.”
Zootopia was directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore and co-directed by Jared Bush. All three contributed to creating the story as well. Jason Bateman and Ginnifer Goodwin will voice the two main characters. Idris Elba will play a character named Chief Bogo, and J.K. Simmons will play Mayor Lionheart.
In addition to this film, Disney will also be releasing Moana next year, which will mark the first time in over 10 years that Walt Disney Animation Studios has released two feature films in the same year. The last time it happened was in 2002 with Treasure Planet and Lilo & Stitch.
You can check out the official synopsis and trailer below. Zootopia hits theaters March 4, 2016.
“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.”
