Will There Be a ‘Zootopia 2’? Answered

It has been over six years since Zootopia hit the big screen and received rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. The computer-animated film from Disney nabbed an Oscar, Golden Globe, and Critics Choice Award, becoming the fourth highest grossing film of 2016. Audiences of all ages were delighted by the poignant themes hiding under vibrant, innovative animation, and a hilarious buddy-cop premise. The film follows go-getter Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), a newly appointed police officer who is desperate to prove herself after her potential is ignored because she’s judged by her innocent looks. However, her big chance to prove herself comes with the drawback of working closely with the seemingly sly con artist fox, Nick (Jason Bateman).

In addition to being beautifully animated, Zootopia is bursting with social commentary. It boldly tackles numerous themes, from sexism to the damage of stereotypes to the power friendship has to overcome prejudice. Zootopia does a fantastic job of honoring Disney’s legacy of innovative animation, while also adding sophisticated modernization with its current themes and deep storyline. Meanwhile, even those less concerned with social commentary or advances in animation could enjoy Zootopia as a family-friendly comedy.
