Return to Zootopia's FINAL TRAILER just dropped!

Every other fandom seems to have a trailer to get hyped over after this week- DC showed the trailer for Justice League, Marvel showed off more of Thor: Ragnarok and the next Avengers movie, and general geekdom got a peek at the fantastic-looking Ready Player One.  But we're not going to be left out, no sir!  The Zootopia Fandom has something to get hyped for too!

After over a year of production, the biggest, most ambitious project this fandom has ever produced is coming to fruition- and now we have the final trailer for the Fan-made series/film, Return to Zootopia, by Browntable Entertainment!

Beginning October First, we'll start to see the first part of the series (in widescreen format).  Then, in 2018, we'll be able to watch the complete, unaltered, full-size MOVIE!

And I must say, as far as trailers go, this could rival some actual movie studios.  And if the humor we see with Judy's parents is anything to go by, we can expect some great things!

GET HYPED with the trailer, after the break!

Zootopia's Reign of Tumblr!

Judy Hopps wearing a Flower Crown by Princess Beauty Case
Tumblr is in interesting website.  I'm sure a lot of you have your own opinions on it, but there's no denying that it's a place for fandoms of all sorts.  To that end, in late 2014/early 2015, Tumblr began posting Fandometrics, which tracks the activity of different fandoms on the platform in various categories.  From games to celebrities, movies and TV, they list whatever had the top 20 most active fandoms every week.

As you can imagine, Zootopia has been on that list for a while, but it wasn't until I went back through and plugged the data into a spreadsheet that I learned just how MASSIVELY successful the Zootopia fandom has been on Tumblr.  So brace yourselves, because I'm pretty sure we set some records.

This last week, Zootopia wasn't on the list.  My best guess is that other lesser-known movie fans were super excited after previews at the San Diego Comic Con.  So now we have some definitive stats:

Zootopia has been in the top 20 most active fandoms since the first week of January, 2016!  That's 80 WEEKS.  Of that time, it spent 10 weeks in the #1 spot (likely would have been much more if it weren't for Captain America: Civil War which I don't think should count since it's just one part of a massive franchise but oh well).  Half of that time was in the Top 5, and a whopping 92% of that time, we were in the top 10!

I think some celebrations are in order!  No other single movie has been on this list for as long as Zootopia was, and I'm willing to bet that next week it'll be right back up in the top 20.  If you are interested in seeing the full spreadsheet tracking Zootopia's reign, you can find that right here.

This fandom continues to be absolutely amazing, and I keep looking forward to seeing what surprises it will bring us next!  Remember, as always...

Try Everything!

Comic: "You're mocking me, Aren't you?" (by ShoutingIsFun)

There are two ways you can imagine the voices in this comic.  First, you can imagine it with Nick and Judy as played by Jason Bateman and Ginnifer Goodwin.  This would totally be in-character for them, after all.

But then there's the fun way.  The way where you imagine it in the voices of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen.  Here, we'll even give you a demonstration.  (It just gets better and better the longer it goes, doesn't it?)

This comic has been floating around on imgur for a while, but finding the original source proved tricky.  But, with some determination and luck, we were finally able to find the artist behind it: ShoutingIsFun, aka Concrete Staircase!  Unfortunately we can't link to their tumblr, as it contains NSFW content, but still, we found it!

Check it out after the break!
