“Like nothing you’ve seen be-fur“.
In the teaser, the world of Zootopia is introduced to viewers. The imaginary universe is similiar to our world, as the occupants there walk on 2 feet, have their respective careers, and use modern technology. The only distinct dissemblance is that the inhabitants are all animals.
Amongst all the animals lies a fox and a bunny, and the storyline in “Zootopia” will revolve around the pair, who are deemed “natural enemies” but are forced to work together.
The official synopsis of the movie is as below:
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.

The upcoming animated film is directed by Byron Howard (of “Tangled” fame) and Rich Moore (of “Wreck-It Ralph“fame ), based on a script by “Big Hero 6” screenwriter Jared Bush, who is also the co-director. Clark Spencer (of “Lilo & Stitch” fame) is overseeing the production.
UPDATE (24th November, 8am):
A new trailer for “Zootopia” has arrived online and it’s literally the “slowest” trailer we’ve ever seen.
The new clip is giving us a first look at one particular scene from the highly anticipted animated action-comedy film. In this scene, Hopps and Wilde decide to stop by the city’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) as part of their investigation for a case.
But as you may already know, this movie aims to provide commentary on actual human society. The scene shows that Hopps and Wilde are in for a long wait as the city’s DMV is actually operated entirely by the slow-moving sloths.
Watch the “Sloth” trailer below:
Slated for release on 4th March 2016, “Zootopia” will feature the vocal talents of Idris Elba, Alan Tudyk, J.K. Simmons, Jenny Slate, Bonnie Hunt, and Octavia Spencer.
