I think some celebrations are in order! (Zootopia News)

Source
Wow. what a fantastic day for Zootopia fans!  Quite a bit of awesome news has occurred, right in time for ZNN's 2-Month Anniversary.  Thank you all so much for all the amazing work you do!  We love featuring it, and sharing it with the community at large!

Starting things off, we've got two major developments in Zootopia's Box Office Stats!  First up, Zootopia is the Second Biggest Original Movie EVER! That eliminates all movies based on pre-existing licences, historical events, etc.

And if that weren't awesome enough, Zootopia has finally sorta-kinda beat the milestone I was personally rooting for: WE'VE MADE MORE MONEY THAN MINIONS!

...Well, domestically, at least.  They still have a lead of 200 million internationally,   But I have a dream!  A dream in which those annoying yellow nuggets are bested by a movie that doesn't stand on the strength of it's marketing, but on it's strength as a movie!  This dream can be real, my friends!  If your local movie theaters are still playing Zootopia (I still have one or two around me that are), then go see it in theaters one last time before the Blu-Ray drops next week!

Japan is certainly helping us with this goal!  This weekend, the box office in Japan hit $50 Million.  Keep the ball rolling, Japan!  With your help, we can reach the coveted One Billion Dollar mark!

Here's something else that's neat- Zootopia got a unique IMDB Page!  They're doing this sort of thing with a lot of the movies that are currently playing in theaters, and I think it may be a US-only deal, but it's still cool!

If you're interested in ZNN's development, we've moved into the alpha stages of a new and updated site, so keep your eyes peeled for that coming within the next month or so!  We've also added a donate button to the sidebar, so if you're feeling generous and want to help us justify why we spend hours and hours every day doing stuff about a fox and a bunny, the option is there.

Thank you all once again!  This community is fantastic, and we wouldn't be where we are without you!

Until next time, Remember...

Try Everything!

  3. Well I never expected such a simply cute film would receive such praise in the box office. But man, does it seem worthy of making it this far.
