WATCH: Disney ‘Zootopia’ Teaser Trailer

Pictured (L-R): Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin). "It's a nod to the great Disney animated animal films we all grew up with, but with a funny, contemporary twist," said director Rich Moore (ìWreck-It Ralph,î ìThe Simpsonsî). "The worlds our artists have created are unbelievableóthere's so much international flavor in one mammal metropolis. And animals: big ones, little onesñ the artists and animators did tons of research, cleverly integrating true animal natures into each character.î ©2015 Disney. All Rights Reserved.Walt Disney Animation Studios has released the first teaser trailer for Zootopia (March 4, 2016) which you can find embedded below.

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. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Zootopia, a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore and co-directed by Jared Bush, opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.
