At the ZOOTOPIA World Premiere this evening, the film’s two animated leads, Judy Hopps (voice by Ginny Goodwin) and Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) walked the red carpet making the first public debuts. D23 shared an image earlier this afternoon and the official @Zootopia twitter also released a photo.
Despite tons of anticipation, there’s been no official announcement of plans for the ZOOTOPIA characters to appear at either Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World Resort. BIG HERO 6 had a dedicated meet and greet with characters Hiro and Baymax in 2014 but Disney Pixar’s INSIDE OUT and THE GOOD DINOSAUR did not receive official greets at theatrical release.
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 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.
ZOOTOPIA opens in theaters March 4, 2016.
