She may have lost out on the role of Rapunzel in Disney’s Tangled, but for the second time in forever, Kristen Bell has found her place in a Walt Disney Animation Studios film. Fresh — or at least in-between — her stint as Princess Anna in the Frozen franchise, Kristen Bell also has a cameo in Disney’s upcoming Zootopia (March 4, 2016) and it’s arguably one more inspired than that of Anna. Tucked away in the offices of Zootopia’s Department of Mammal Vehicles (DMV) is none other than Flash’s co-worker, Priscilla, a sloth. It’s a role Bell was destined to play considering she has been quite open about her affinity for the species as evidenced by this appearance on ‘Ellen:’
Although she has more lines in the actual film, you can preview Bell’s performance as Priscilla in the officially released sloth trailer (at approximately the 2:04 mark):
But as it turns out, Bell isn’t the only Disney royalty who appears in the film. Acting along side lead Ginnifer Goodwin is her on-screen/off-screen partner, Josh Dallas /aka/ ‘Once Upon A Time’s Prince Charming who has a cameo role as ‘Frantic Pig.’

Directors Rich Moore and Byron Howard have roles as Doug and Bucky Oryx-Antlerson respectively while co-director/co-writer has a role as Pronk Oryx-Antlerson. Other Walt Disney Animation Studios family voices include Leah Latham as Fru Fru and Josie Trinidad as Landlady.
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 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, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman) to solve the mystery.
