The New “Zootopia” Trailer Is The Punniest Yet-Meet The Herd of Characters
Life can be a jungle and the budding metropolis of Zootopia is nothing like you’ve ever seen be-fur. In what is sure to be one of the punniest movies to come down the road, 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. If the new poster is any indication,Zootopia will be purrfic for human moviegoers who can’t get enough of the animal-themed wordplay and are ready to get in on the game themselves.
Look closely at the latest poster -can you spot at least four of the puns? Shakira as a gazelle is genius casting – or just may be the “sealiest” thing that “ewe” have ever seen. She’s the one modeling “Preyda” in that middle poster there. All “kitten” aside, Zootopia is the newest “tail” of the modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. It’s the 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 (voice of 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 (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”). I would be “lion” if I said I wasn’t more than a little bit excited for this one. It’s going to be pure panda-monium when Zooptopia hits theaters March 4-be sure to let “minnow” what you think!
Here’s a look of the cast of characters-I know you’ll find them as a-moosing as we do!
Officer Judy Hopps- JUDY HOPPS, an optimistic bunny who’s new to Zootopia’s police department.
Nick Wilde – NICK WILDE, the scamming fox who Judy reluctantly teams up with to crack her first case.
Flash- FLASH, the fastest sloth working at the DMV—the Department of Mammal Vehicles.
Duke Weaselton- DUKE WEASELTON, a small-time weasel crook with a big-time weasel mouth, who tries to give Judy the slip during a police chase. .
Yax- – YAX THE YAK, the most enlightened, laid-back bovine in Zootopia. When Judy Hopps is on a case, Yax is full of revealing insights.
Mrs. Otterton- MRS. OTTERTON, a desperate otter who turns to Officer Judy Hopps for help in solving her husband’s mysterious disappearance. .
Chief Bogo- CHIEF BOGO, head of the Zootopia Police Department. A tough cape buffalo with 2,000 lbs of attitude, Bogo is reluctant to add Judy Hopps, Zootopia’s first bunny cop, to his squad of hardened rhinos, elephants and hippos.
Finnick- FINNICK, a fennec fox with a big chip on his adorable shoulder.

Mrs. Hopps loves and supports her daughter, but is a hare nervous about Judy moving to Zootopia to become a big-city police officer.

Along with Mrs. Hopps, he is worried about Judy moving to Zootopia and the untrustworthy big-city mammals who live there—especially foxes.
