UPDATE 1/20/16: “Zootopia” preview comes to the Bug’s Life Theater at Disney California Adventure park Friday, Jan. 22.

It’s Zoo Year’s Eve! To celebrate, we’re thrilled to announce that beginning January 21, Guests visiting Disney Parks will be able to catch a preview of scenes from Disney’s hysterical comedy-adventure “Zootopia” in sneak peeks planned for Disney California Adventure park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

At Disney California Adventure park, the “Zootopia” preview will be presented at the Bug’s Life Theater with special in-theater effects. Guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will get to see this advance look at clips from the film as part of the One Man’s Dream attraction on Mickey Avenue.

Imagine an entire world populated by animals, living together in habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown. This modern mammal metropolis is the setting of “Zootopia,” opening in theaters in 3D March 4.

Zootopia is a melting pot, where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie 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, con-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.

Here’s your first look at the new trailer for “Zootopia” featuring the all-new original song, “Try Everything,” which is written by singer-songwriter Sia and songwriting duo Stargate, and performed by Grammy® winner Shakira.

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Wreck-It Ralph”), opens in theaters on March 4 in 3D.


  • At El Capitan theater it says “before the show see Nick and Hopps Live on Stage” tickets are already on sale.

  • Disney parks is really very beautiful park and this park looks really very awesome. I like it.

  • Think George meant, will we see Nick & Judy in the parks AFTER the movie comes out?
    With the Animation building gone at the Studios (and how that ended up keeping two other “emotional” characters from meeting), it’s had us worried for where/if new-movie characters are going to show up in the future…Could this be a sign of new things at the parks??

  • Hi Shawn, Happy New Year!

    Any word on if either coast might host a character meet n’ greet with friends from the film?


    • George – At this time, Nick and Judy have their hands full in Zootopia and aren’t planning to visit Disney Parks in person.
