Disney’s “Zootopia“, the upcoming comedy-adventure movie release from Walt Disney Animation Studios, features a team of filmmakers from all over the world.
From Southeast Asia, there are 5 hometown heroes, specifically from Singapore and Thailand, each of them with different roles in the production of the movie. From lighting artists to modeler, these hometown heroes are based in Burbank, California, working alongside the directors of Disney’s Zootopia, Byron Howard and Rich Moore.
The synopsis is as follows:
“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 rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voiced by 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 (voiced by Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.”
The film stars the voices of Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Shakira, Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons, Nate Torrence, Bonnie Hunt, Octavia Spencer, Kristen Bell, Tommy Chong, Jenny Slate, Don Lake, and more.
To celebrate the global release of Disney’s Zootopia, a special series of Southeast Asia exclusive art has been drawn by Fawn Veerasunthorn, a Thai story artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios. For Disney’s Zootopia, Veerasunthorn was responsible for visualising the script into panels of drawings.
This special series of Southeast Asia exclusive art features drawings of the movie’s characters, Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps, with local iconic landmarks in Malaysia, Philippines, and Thailand.
