We have to wait just a couple more months for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ next big adventure, Zootopia—but today’s exciting news is sure to tide us over! Joining previously announced voice cast members Ginnifer Goodwin (Once Upon a Time), Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), and Grammy® winner Shakira are a slew of most excellent additions including Oscar® winners Octavia Spencer (The Help) and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash); Luther star Idris Elba; comedy legend Tommy Chong; Alan Tudyk (Firefly), providing a voice for his fourth Disney animated film; Marcel the Shell creator Jenny Slate; and character-actors-extraordinaire Bonnie Hunt (Cars) and Don Lake (Best in Show).
Directed by Byron Howard (Tangled) and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph), Zootopia takes place in a modern mammal metropolis—where animals from every environment live together. It’s a place where, no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie cop Judy Hopps (voice of 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 fast-talking, scam-artist fox Nick Wilde (voice of Bateman) to solve the mystery. Look for Zootopia in theaters this March!
