In response to an inquiry to Walt Disney Animation Studios, we were told that it’s very likely that the studio will be releasing a brand new short in 2016. This is, of course, good news. However it appears that the unidentified short is currently in production and so the studio is aiming for a release alongside Moana (November 23, 2016), so we won’t be seeing a short with Zootopia which, according to the BBFC, clocks in at just over 108 minutes in length.

Kristen Bell Voices a Sloth in Disney’s ‘Zootopia’

'Priscilla' (voice of Kristen Bell)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.

WATCH: ‘Zootopia’ Clip, ‘Arriving’

Walt Disney Animation Studios has released the second clip from its upcoming film, Zootopia (March 4, 2016), titled ‘Arriving,’ which you can find embedded below.

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.
