Zootopia fans have been waiting since 2016 for a follow-up to the popular film, well, they don’t have to wait any longer. And, according to Comicbook.com, the new series is going to make it worth the wait.
Fans of the original film will know just how large the world of Zootopia is and that the film only gave a glimpse at just a very small part of it. It seems that Zootopia+ will offer viewers a chance to expand on that world while still bringing back some fan favorite Zootopia supporting characters as well. Zootopia+ [is] be directed by Trent Correy and Josie Trinidad, both of whom were involved with the original film — Correy as an animator and Trinidad as a writer.
Zootopia+ is a follow up of sorts built off of the popular film, Zootopia. First released in 2016, Zootopia followed the story of an unlikely partnership between a rabbit police officer, Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), and a red fox con artist, Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), as they work together to uncover a criminal conspiracy involving the disappearance of predators in the titular city where anthropomorphic animals coexist.
As mentioned, the series will bring back some of the favorite characters from the movie. Those featured in the six-form short stories include: Fru Fru, the fashion-forward arctic shrew; ZPD dispatcher Clawhauser, the sweet-toothed cheetah; and Flash, the smiling sloth who, of course, if you remember is always full of surprises.
In addition to knowing which favorite characters will put in cameos during the series, the D23 Expo panel released the titles of each episode so that fans can have even more of an idea of what to expect. Those titles are: “The Real Rodents of Rodentia,” “Duke the Musical,” “Hopp on Board,” “The Godfather of the Bride,” “So You Think You Can Prance,” and “Dinner Rush”.
Make sure to tune-in to Disney+ for Zootopia+ on Wednesday, November 9. Or, make it a “weekend at the movies” and stream the original first and move on to binging the series! When you watch, let us know what you think!
