Talking animals are nothing new in the world of Disney animated features, but Zootopia takes them to a whole new level by presenting an entire city built, populated, and run by mammals. There are hamster businessmen, shrew mobsters, and a lion mayor. Our protagonists are a fox con artist (voiced by Jason Bateman) and a rabbit police officer (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin). And they all have one thing in common: they really, really love making animal puns.
A new Zootopia clip addresses the very literal “elephant in the room,” while another offers a peek at “Zoogle,” the animal version of Google. There’s also one more Zootopia trailer that offers a better look at Nick’s (Bateman) scamming ways. Check it all out after the jump. Read More »

Disney’s Zootopia is set in a sort of animal paradise, where creatures of all kinds co-exist in habitat neighborhoods like Sahara Square and Tundratown. But the first Zootopia poster suggests it’ll also be heaven on Earth for human moviegoers who happen to adore animal-themed wordplay. See the Zootopia poster after the jump. Read More »

Much like Pixar took off last year, Disney Animation is taking off this year. After a nice string of hits including the all-time animated champion, Frozen, Disney Animation isn’t releasing a film in 2015 but will be back in 2016. Their next movie is called Zootopia, a film they revealed at the D23 Expo back in 2013 set in a massive animal metropolis. It’ll be released on March 4, 2016, features the voices of Jason Bateman and Ginnifer Goodwin and though we’ve seen some concept art (like above) the first official look at the film’s main characters is now online. Check it out below. Read More »

The first new project announcement from Walt Disney Animation Studios to be announced at D23 this weekend is Zootopia, an animated feature set in an animal world. More specifically, it is a “buddy action comedy set in a world where humans never existed.”
The film will be released in 2016, and you can get many more details below. Read More »
Briefly: Somehow, Jason Bateman has had scant gigs in feature animation. (While he has voiced a few animated characters on TV, his main feature role was in the English dub of Arthur and the Invisibles.) That’s going to change with the new film from Tangled co-director Byron Howard, who is setting up a new animated project at Disney.
The new film is reportedly an “untitled animal comedy” that is still without a release date. More details are thing, but THR reports that Bateman is set to make his feature voice acting debut in the film. Disney is usually pretty tight-lipped about animated projects, and given that it already has Frozen set for November 27 of this year and another film slated for Nov. 7, 2014, it could well be 2015 before this one is released.
Hot off the first look at the next Toy Story short film, Small Fry, Disney announced the directors of Tangled will bring back those characters in short form at the beginning of the new year. A short sequel called Tangled Ever After will play with Beauty and the Beast 3D when it’s released January 13, 2012. Once again directed by Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, the short will take place at Rapunzel and Flynn’s wedding where Pascal the chameleon and Maximus the horse lose the rings.

This is one of the early salvos from Disney’s D23 Expo, which started yesterday and is ongoing today. The Marvel Studios panel will take place later this afternoon, and as Peter and Germain are sitting in on that we’ll likely have a good bit of news to share later in the day.
For now, here’s a compliment to yesterday’s announcement of Small Fry, the Pixar Toy Story short that will play in front of The Muppets. This is the poster for Tangled Ever After, a short film from Tangled directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard. While we don’t have plot details you can probably glean most of the big notes from the poster, which is after the break. Read More »
