March 4th 2016

A fast-talking fox is framed for a crime he didn’t commit in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia” (working title)—in theaters in 2016.
After Big Hero 6 is released, WDAS will take a year off before releasing two films in 2016. The first is currently called Zootopia, which will be directed by one of Tangled‘s co-directors Byron Howard. This film will star Jason Bateman (who previously been penned to voicing a character in this film) who is supposed to voice a fox character.

New Disney Animation Films Announced: 'Zootopia', 'Giants', 'Moana' & More!
“Then a big announcement came: “Zootopia” is named as the 2016 Walt Disney Animation Studios film. It’s an original from “Tangled” director Byron Howard – a buddy action comedy set in animal world where humans never existed. That means in this world, animals designed all architecture and design elements with locations like Tundra Town, Sahara Square, Rain Forest, Wild Times, Anamalia, The Canals, and Burrow Borough. Natural elements inspire locations, like a hotel that looks like a mountain or a palm tree.

The film will star hero Nick Wilde, a sharped tooth mammal – a fox. It’s about his relationship with Lt. Judy Hopps, a rabbit. Set in a Las Vegas-style world, the two start as natural enemies but become friends by the end. Oh, and there will be a lot of “Gnu-pid” Wildebeasts.”

I don't care if it is 2D or 3D I just know I will love it, especially if they stick with that outfit on that fox.M

Re: Zootopia -working title- (2016)

I think it looks fantastic. It feels a lot like 70s-80s Disney with the plethora of anthropomorphic animal films. I've missed films with animals and this fox looks like true cool guy.

These were the last four in the last 13 years:

Winnie the Pooh (2011) (which was sadly a commercial failure because it came out the same weekend as HP7 p2)
Chicken Little (2005) (made average numbers)
Home on the Range (2004) (HUGE ASS FAILURE)
Dinosaur (2000) (just okay, made average numbers)

This film already looks like it has more personality than all four of those films...Something that would definitely catch the eyes of all demographics.

Definitely will look forward to this. Though Disney has a history if taking the individuality out of some recent films. But no, I will not be cynical about this. Love that fox!

Yea, so did I. I was so disappointed that it came out the same weekend as HP7 p.2 because I wanted it to succeed. I even have a huge theater poster for it in my house ;A;

Dinosaurs is good to watch once but never again.

Lol Home on the Range was bleh I hate it xD Chicken Little to me is also another "watch once, never again" film. I told my best friend I hadn't seen it before and she pulled out the childrens book for us to read. After that you get the whole idea of the film and it becomes rather moot to watch :\

Edit: home of the range had humans though
Crap! Forgot about that xD Well then just three films, then...I have only seen the film once and I nearly fell asleep on it because it was so boring.

Definitely will look forward to this. Though Disney has a history if taking the individuality out of some recent films. But no, I will not be cynical about this. Love that fox!
If I were whoever made this concept art, I'd demand the fox stays cool. I'm honestly hoping Disney execs manage to keep their paws off of the concept and script and damn the test groups xD

Added some new info:

“Then a big announcement came: “Zootopia” is named as the 2016 Walt Disney Animation Studios film.

His name is Nick~

Have to agree. It seemed really cruel to get so upset over one young boy to the point that the entire town and even his father was disappointed in him :c

I actually sort of did! I haven't finish that film yet but what I saw impressed me.

Seems like it'd be an interesting film. lol Having trouble telling if some of the rabbits in the image have one eye or two very small ones.

Re: Zootopia -working title- (2016)

Would be cool if it's done in the style of its key visual. Makes me think they're using the same technique they used for Paperman.
