Zootopia Sequels

It’s been nearly three years since Walt Disney Animation released Zootopia. Despite winning Best Animated Movie at both the Oscars and the Golden Globes, the movie doesn’t feel like it was as much of a sensation as Frozen.

Knowing what a sensation Zootopia was around the world, it’s surprising we haven’t heard more details on a sequel developing behind the scenes. That changes today.

Zootopia voice actor Tommy “Tiny” Lister, who plays the little fox scammer sidekick to Jason Bateman’s character Nick Wilde, recently revealed that Disney is working on two Zootopia sequels. Find out what the actor had to say below. Read More »

Zootopia - Nick Wilde

We know Walt Disney Animation is fond of dropping easter eggs into their own films as a way to give shout-outs to other projects in the company’s past or ones currently in development. Even though these references are often hidden in the background, most eagle-eyed fans can pick them out if they look hard enough. But I just learned about a Zootopia easter egg in Big Hero 6 that is so obscure, I’m convinced even the world’s biggest Disney fans probably have no idea what it is.
