Opens in theaters on March 4, 2016
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. It is comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown. It’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together. Zootopia is a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything!
When rookie 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 as easy as she thought. Although 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.
