Picture this: you’re a fox minding your own business in a town filled with animals that live in harmony. But then you’re framed for a crime you didn’t commit, and a rabbit is hot on your tail trying to catch you – or help prove your innocence. That’s Zootopia, a new animated movie from Disney hitting theaters on March 4th.
A new trailer for the film seems to make it clear to everyone in the audience that Zootopia is not just a new funny movie with animals goofing around. The fable tackles race and gender equality, which seem to be major themes at Disney – just see the latest Star Wars movie, which was released a week before Christmas.
Officer Judy Hopps is the main rabbit in the film, an excited bunny who is just joining the Zootopia police force. A rookie herself, she has to prove she belongs there and deal with stereotypes and sexism – which is apparently still an issue in a world inhabited only by animals.
Ginnifer Goodwin voices Judy Hopps, while Jason Bateman is Nick Wilde. Other stars including Idris Elba, Alan Tudyk, J.K. Simmons and even Shakira will bring some of the other characters to life.
Zootopia certainly looks like a fun animated flick to watch this year, and you can check out the new trailer below.
