Walt Disney Animation Studios has released the first trailer for Zootopia, an upcoming animated action-comedy film directed by Byron Howard (Tangled, Bolt) and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph, The Simpsons). The movie follows an anthropomorphic con artist fox named Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) and rookie rabbit cop Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) as they team up to solve a mystery. Zootopia is currently scheduled to stampede into theaters on March 4, 2016.
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a 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 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, to solve the mystery.
