To our delight, 2016’s Zootopia won the 2017 Oscar for Best Animated Film. We can’t wait for the heartwarming sequel to the charming animated film Zootopia.
Our first contact with the world of Zootopia, which appears to be one in which animals work, live, and socialize in cities exactly as people do, is with the bunny, Judy Hopps. The rabbit Judy was brought up to believe that all animals should be treated with respect.
This is why, despite being weaker than other animals who also serve as police, she fights for her goals and eventually becomes one. A top graduate of the police academy, she is now stationed in Zootopia, the world’s largest city entirely populated by animals.
Zootopia’s cityscape depicts a place where animals of all kinds can live and work together peacefully, and its message is that we should adopt this attitude toward our own planet.
Featuring the voices of Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, and Idris Elba, Zootopia has an 8.0 rating on IMDb.
Zootopia 2 Cast
The cast of the sequel to Zootopia has not been announced officially until now. However, two voice actors stepped out and discussed their roles in the cartoon.
Officer McHorn was voiced by one of the voice actors, Mark Smith. After being a part of the original film and the first sequel, he told The Sun in 2017 that he would be seen in the subsequent Zootopia flicks as well.
The late Tommy Lister, who voiced Finnick, revealed to his fans in 2019 that he would be returning for a sequel and that the producers of Zootopia intended to make it a trilogy.
It also stars Jason Bateman as Nick Wilde, Jenny Slate as Bellwether, Idris Elba as Chief Bogo, Nate Torrence as Clawhauser, Don Lake as Stu Hopps, Bonnie Hunt as Bonnie Hopps, Tommy Chong as Yax, Octavia Spencer as Mrs Otterton, J.K. Simmons as Mayor Lionheart, Alan Tudyk as Duke Weaselton, and Raymond S. Persi as Flash or Officer
Thus, there would be an abundance of plots in the trilogy. It’s also a given that Jason Bateman, as Nick Wilde, and Ginnifer Goodwin, as Judy Hopps, will return for the sequel.
Zootopia 2 Plot
The possibilities for a sequel are limitless because “Zootopia” didn’t finish on a cliffhanger. In an interview with CinemaBlend, Goodwin said she hoped Nick would have to persuade Judy that saving the planet was worthwhile in the sequel. Bateman has also shared his hopes for the film.
However, Bateman expressed interest, “We’re a formidable duo, killing it in the world. Fixing up the neighbourhood. A partner and I just joined the force and we’re getting our feet wet. This serves as a warning to all criminals.”
It would be intriguing to see how the sequel builds on the first film’s themes of diversity, racial profiling, and acceptance while not undermining the political and social gains that have been accomplished since 2016.
Hopefully, Judy and Nick will keep working to improve their neighbourhood, but if they decide to venture out of their current area, they may discover animals with more nuanced social norms and learn that they need to rethink their approach to policing accordingly.
Even if a sequel isn’t made, the short-form structure of “Zootopia+” could influence its direction because of the multiple storylines it would establish.
Zootopia 2 Release Date
A new Zootopia film has not been confirmed or denied by the studio as of yet. No plans have been announced for a Zootopia sequel. The first film in the series, however, was wildly successful, and its devotees are now eager to see more.
With such a massive audience response to the first picture, it’s safe to assume that Disney has some truly spectacular plans for a sequel. Therefore, we will need to be a bit more patient in the hope that an official statement will be made soon.
There have been no formal announcements made regarding Zootopia 2, although a CGI animated television series titled Zootopia plus will premiere in the last year 2022.
Disney+ also revealed that gangster shrews, sloths, and tiger dancers would be appearing in the show. The showrunners are Josie Trinidad and Trent Correy.
