Buddy cop movies are always a winning watch, but even better when they put a spin on things. That looks to be the case for Disney’s upcoming animation Zootopia which sees two unlikely mammals team-up to save the day in their paw-infested habitat.
In a world where animals walk on two legs as opposed to the old fashioned four, Zootopia is home to new bunny on the block Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin). An officer of the law with something to prove, she finds a case worth cracking that could really make a name for herself in this town, the problem is she’s going to have team-up with a criminal to do it. Enter smart as a fox and also an actual one, Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), a scam artist who will play a key ally in this adventure that will turn their town upside down and leave the animal kingdom going absolutely wild. Great stuff.
The teaser doesn’t quite show much story detail, but does a great job of setting the tone of this wonderful world we’re set to visit (the sloth getting left behind in the animal crossing is a great touch). As for how the rabbit and her sworn enemy are going to work together, we can only wait and see but from what’s on show, safari so-goody.
Directed by Tangled and Bolt’s Byron Howard Zootopia will open its doors March 4, 2016.
