Congratulations to everyone who participated in our first ever National Zootopia Writing Month!

There's only one step left:

Since you're only giving us one link, be sure that we can find the rest of your story from that one link. If you've got multiple chapters, on google drive, just put them all into a folder, and link us to the folder, on Fanfiction.net or AO3, just send us to the first chapter and we can get the rest from there.

Once we have everyone's stories, we'll make a full post showing off everyone who participated!

You have until December 1st at 11:59 PM Pacific Time to submit your story.  We look forward to reading them!

And one final thing before I go. Thank you all. These events are nothing without the great fans like you all to make them grand! I'm glad to have been able to co-ordinate this event, and I'm incredibly excited to see everything you all have written!

That's it guys, I hope you had fun!

Video: Zootopia, but with no animals.

Today's been kind of a downer of a day for me.  The sort of day that makes you question things, like "When will my life begin?" or "Can anyone outfox the fox?".   Or "What would Zootopia look like if you took away all the animals?"

Well, I didn't ask that last question, but we got an answer anyways.

Someone by the name of Gianni The Best decided they would take the time to go through all of Zootopia frame-by-frame and remove all the frames that had any animals in them.  As it turns out, that removes a full 97% of the movie.

Really gives you a new perspective on the fact that each animal in Zootopia had hundreds of thousands of individually rendered hairs.  They really didn't cut any corners, there was pretty much always at least one animal on screen at any time.  So props to you, Disney!  This random fact makes your awesome technology that much more impressive!

Art of the Day #72: It's Good Nick Day!

Good Nick Day! by @DrapZootopia
Source [1]
Remember Judy and Nick Day on October 29? Well November 29 is Good Nick Day in Japan! 29 sounds like Nick, and 11 can be pronounced as "ii", which means good in Japanese. So today we'll celebrate Nick being good, doing good and looking good!

Comic: Partners (Original by Nata Kokone)

When Judy and Nick uncovered Bellwether's conspiracy and sent her to prison, it might have ended the species riots that had been going on, but it didn't eliminate the prejudice and bias that existed in the city. People will still have their ingrained biases, and our heroes face this once again in this touching comic.

Thanks to Nata Kokone for making the original comic, and to LMAbacus for translating and editing it!  Check out the original over on Pixiv, and the translated version after the break!  As usual for translated comics, read from right to left!

Story Updates 28 November 2016- Tons of updates!

I've been watching quite a bit of Arrow lately (and am definitely looking forward to watching the four-series crossover the CW has going on this week).

Now, you could say that has pretty much nothing to do with either Zootopia, or the Fanfic whose cover is right there in front of you.  You could tell me that's supposed to be a more "Robin Hood" style character than a "Green Arrow".  And you would be right.  Completely right.

Surprise Segue!

We have a whole lot of updates for you, from the final, 100th Chapter of One Hundred Kisses (Which is now COMPLETE!) to 4 more chapters of Fallout:Zootopia!  Get ready to read!

Take A Stand by Crewefox (also goes by Garouge)

Congratulations to Zootopians for 50k Likes!


The Zootopians Facebook group, which joined the ZNN Network back in early september, has hit a major milestone!  They have done what few fan-pages have done, and have acquired over 50,000 likes / fans / followers / whatever facebook is calling it these days!

A little history about them- they actually started up over a year before the movie's release.  Yeah, back when all we knew about the movie was some vague promotional material, they were working on building up a community around it.  Naturally it exploded when the film actually hit theaters, but it laid part of the groundwork for what would become the thriving fandom we know and love today.

So if you aren't already following them on Facebook, go give them a like!  Congratulate them!  They're a fantastic page that will only deliver you more Zootopia goodness, and they deserve all the love you can give them!

Comic: Gazelle's Past (Original by Koka)

Zootopia deals a lot with childhood experiences and how they've molded Nick and Judy into who they are. But other characters also have their own childhood experiences, and this comic imagines a pretty influential one for a surprise visitor.

Thanks to Koka for making the original comic, and to LMAbacus for translating and editing it!  Check out the original over on Twitter, and the translated version after the break!  As usual for translated comics, read from right to left!

Violin Cover of Try Everything, by Anastasia Soina!


How did I miss this??  This video was made back in February, yet I'm only hearing about it now!  Shame on me!

Anastasia Soina is an incredibly talented violinist on Youtube who specializes in doing violin covers of songs from popular culture, from Miraculous Ladybug to CS:GO and Pirates of the Caribbean.  And, just prior to the film's official release in the USA, she did a phenomenal all-violin cover of Try Everything!

This definitely makes it into my top 10 covers of Gazelle's iconic song, so be sure to check it out after the break!

Zootopia Craziness 4 is truly... well, crazy!

The master of Zootopia YTP's, Leo Koutakis, is back at it again with another installment of Zootopia Craziness!

I don't know what else to say about it really.  It lives up to its name.  Totally crazy.

I LOVE IT!

Story Post: The Faded Line

DragonwolfRooke
[Rating T13][Dark AU]

A great envisioning of where Nick and Judy would be had they never met initially and the TAME initiative actually got passed into law to employ shock collars onto all predators. Nick dives deeper into criminal activity and Judy gets more repressed as a 'cute' bunny with no chance to prove herself. Great set up with potential for greater chapters to follow. -Darkflamewolf

Author: TheStarsShadow15
Description : In a darker universe, Judy never got the chance to prove herself and Nick's life got complicated without the sly bunny. As an activist group gains power, the unlikely duo must work together to help determine the fate of a broken city. On their way they discover forbidden emotions for each other and a conspiracy that could change Zootopia forever.
The Faded Line

Comic: I'm Proud of You (Original by Kairo)


There's nothing in the world like a parent's pride in their child.  Especially a mother's.  Mothers know what we go through all our lives, our struggles and our triumphs.  I can only imagine what was going through Nick's mother's head when Judy pinned that badge on him after his graduation.

Benjamin Clawhauser by Slurku

Officer Clawhauser is one of the most adorable cops ever seen on the big screen.  There's a reason the fandom has taken to calling him a "precious cinnamon roll".  And he doesn't get as much love as he deserves.  Seriously you guys!  Precious cinnamon roll!

Are Zootopia and Robin Hood in the same universe? Find out with Theory Pop!

Something that keeps coming up time and time again is speculation that Robin Hood and Zootopia occur in the same Disney universe.  We even did an entire art of the day dedicated to the idea, way back in April.

So, how does Zootopia fit into the larger Disney universe?  Is it connected to The Lion King at all?  Or The-Film-Which-Must-Not-Be-Named?  Find out today with Theory Pop, a brand-new Youtube Channel with some seriously good quality work!  Go subscribe to them today!  They definitely deserve it!

Check out the theory for yourself after the break!

Comic: The Princess Bride AU (by Quirky-Middle-Child)

Quirky's been doing some serious work-y!

...Okay, that pun was bad even by my very low standards.

I've been absolutely loving all the fantastic AUs people have come up with, from Sleeping Beauty to Kung Fu Panda.  It's really incredible just how well the characters from Zootopia fit when cast in completely different genres and styles of movie.  That's a mark of some truly strong characters.

And now, two of my all-time favorite movies have been fused.  I can quote The Princess Bride inside and out, and now (with some minor suggestion from me and the rest of the ZNN team), Quirkly-Middle-Child has brought us the zootopia-fied version of the lead-in to one of cinema's greatest sword fights.

Check out the original on tumblr, the full comic on Deviantart, or read it all after the break!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Art by FairyTalesArtist
Happy Thanksgiving, one and all!

On this day, we take a moment to reflect on all the things we have, and how grateful we are for them.  I personally am very thankful for my family, my friends, and my home.  I'm thankful for the internet, and that we live in an age where we can easily communicate with people from all over the world.  I'm thankful for all the marvelous technology that infuses our daily lives.

But unique to this year, I am thankful for Zootopia, and all the wonderful times I've been able to have with this fandom!  I'm thankful for all the praise and support that you have given ZNN, and I'm thankful that this random idea of mine could end up becoming such a success.

I'm thankful for our patrons and sponsors. I'm thankful for all the people who comment.  And I'm especially thankful for everyone who sends us in their work so that we can show the world how awesome it is!

So this thanksgiving, from the bottom of my heart, I say thank you.  Thank you to everyone who reads this blog and helps to make it the wonderful place that it is.

Thank you all.

Happy Thanksgiving, and as you sit down to eat and are faced with a plethora of delicious food, remember, as always...

Try Everything!

-Andy Lagopus

P.S. What are you thankful for?  I'd love to hear your responses in the comments, if you feel like sharing.

Art of the Day #70- Pie Everything! (Plus Poll!)

GIDEON GREY by TheNakedLunch
Source [1]
Over the past few months, I've grown to really love this fandom.  Y'all are a bit like family to me!

And something my family does every year is, on the day before thanksgiving, we make a ton of pie, invite people over, and have a Pie Party!  It's always a blast, and we never know exactly what sort of pies people are going to bring, but we typically make about a dozen ourselves.

So, allow me to share this family tradition with all of you in the only way I really can, given how few of you physically live near me.  Enjoy some art of Gideon Grey and his Real Good Baked Stuff!

(This guy definitely knows how to name a company, by the way.  10/10 for honest advertising.)

Also, I just thought of something fun.  Let's have a one-day poll.  What's your favorite type of pie?  Answer in the sidebar, or in the comments section below!

NaZoWriMo week 4: The Final Stretch!

Another week has passed, and we've hit the final stretch! ZNN's NaZoWriMo event is officially in it's final week (okay, we've got 8 days)! I hope you've all been writing, as we enter the final stretch, once again I wish you all the best of luck! Remember the tips from our last post!

I've talked to a few people in the event so far, of course one of my close friends just couldn't make it, but I've also heard from a few people doing pretty great along the path! Anyone can make it, just sit down and keep on working!

Now, as I told you last week, remember to edit later. I've seen a few jokes about December, and as it stands, they're pretty accurate. December is jokingly referred to as "National Novel Editing Month", and after an event like this, that's the perfect way to finish up your story after an event like this!

Before I go, I have a reminder for all of you. Remember to finish and submit your finished story from the event by the end of the day on Thursday, December 1st. As for submitting, email the finished story to Submit@ZootopiaNewsNetwork.com with [NaZoWriMo] in the subject line, after your story's title.

Alright, that's all for today! Good luck everyone!

~Dominic Faux, signing off.

Oh M. Goodness, there's a Zootopia parody of "Like a Boss"!


Want something you never expected to see?  Something like a complete Zootopia Parody of "Like a Boss", by The Lonely Island?  ACRacebest has gotcha covered!

It works WAY better than I would have thought if I was told the idea without the video.  Seriously, it's great!

[Melancholy][Poem][RatedK9]

A poem of great renown, told of deeds known across town. Of two unlikely partners, who solved a great many capers. Here they are together, as it should be forever.

Author: Cimar of Turalis WildeHopps

Description : For years their hearts did beat as one, underneath that smiling sun. With years gone by, each one running past, their lives encompassed what truly lasts. A love, a hope, for which all could strive. A hope that lives... A hope, that can never truly die. WildeHopps. Different than my usual Fluff.

Story Updates 22 November 2016

Hello there everyone! I hope your day is going well. Thanksgiving is coming up soon in the US, so start thinking of what you're thankful for!

Personally, I'm thankful for the amazing community that's grown around Zootopia, infusing it with life and vibrance all these months after the film's release. Y'all are fantastic!

I'm also thankful that the people who write awesome fanfics keep writing, so you can have your daily dose of fiction!

Film Awards Season begins, and Zootopia is doing fantastic!


It's that time of year!  The time where filmmakers pat each other on the back and decide whose film reigns supreme in their respective categories.  I've never really cared too much about awards season in the past, mainly because I never had a single movie that I was rooting for.  Now, though, things are different!

Above, you can see pictures of Rich Moore and Byron Howard accepting the Hollywood Film Award for Animation, which was shared by Byron over on twitter!

But that's not the only trophy Zootopia has earned so far!  Just a few days ago, Zootropolis took home two awards from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA)- Best Children's Feature Film in 2016, and the Children's Choice Award!

And as if that weren't enough, Disney is currently making ads for Variety Magazine, promoting Zootopia for the Oscars!  If all goes right, we just might see Zootopia nominated in five different categories at the Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Animated Feature, Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Original Song.  I can only imagine how amazing it would be for Zootopia to win all of them, but given the state of movies this year... well, it's actually a lot more likely than most years.  Movies have been kinda meh in 2016, in my opinon.  With some exceptions, of course.

Finally, Zootopia and its voice actors have been submitted for multiple potential awards for the People's Choice Awards!  These include Favorite Movie, Favorite Animated Movie Voice (for both Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman) and Favorite Family Movie!  Be sure to go over to their site and vote!

Let's hope that Zootopia can finally break the Curse of the Academy and win Best Picture!  That would certainly be a triumph for animation!

Comic: Lending Strength (Original by Tumugi)

Judy's trials and tribulations at the ZPD Academy are painfully revealed to us in the movie, but Nick's are not. Considering that he is probably even less physically suited to become a cop than Judy, and not as young as he was, he must've had a very hard time at the academy as well. This moving comic considers what might have motivated him to keep up the struggle.

Story: Take A Stand

art by Ziegelzeig
[Action] [Drama] [Romance] [Crossover] [Rated T-13]

When I read that it was full of crossovers, I was admittedly a little worried. Crossovers usually don't work in my eyes. This fic however, creates a completely unique and realistic case which blends characters old and new, familiar and original mixing classical and unique takes on characters. It's beautifully crafted. -Nathan B.

Author: Crewefox (also goes by Garouge)

Description : It's a Zootopia / Robin Hood crossover; Zootopia is gripped with civil strife, whilst a political storm is brewing Judy and Nick must be honest with each other, as do Clawhauser and Bogo but events unfold around them that will test their love and their ideals. All the while a heist gang are stealing millions from the corrupt and giving it to the poor, it's time for Judy and Nick to stand for what they believe in

ZMV: Come Undone

Its good to see more people trying their hand at making ZMVs.  The more people try it, the more styles and perspectives we get to see.  And the more music I get for my general use.  Seriously, I think I've been living under a rock or something, I don't know like 90% of the songs that people use for these.

This video comes to us from DarkTailsXZ, who did an excellent job of editing the visuals and music to fit each other.  The bit at 22 seconds in where Judy slams the donut down on weaselton in conjunction with the guitar riff is very nice indeed!

Check it out for yourself after the break!

[Mead] Judy is Dead Parts 11 and 12: Savage City and Eye/Tooth

...and the hurricane hits, throwing us into the final arc of Judy is Dead. Savagery on scales that Bellwether could only dream of plunges Zootopia into chaos as the ZPD scrambles to keep the situation contained in Savage City. Then an old fox throws himself into the fray to the narration of one of the most authentically Zootopia-feeling pieces of poetry I've read in Eye/Tooth.

How to Draw Nick and Judy! (Original by Yudukichi)


We've got a little treat for all you aspiring artists out there!

If you couldn't tell by the cover image, we have some reference sheets for you.  One of the skilled artists who collaborated on this excellent image for Nick and Judy Day, Yudukichi (@ydk_Disney), has released some helpful guidelines and tutorials for those of you who want to learn to draw Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps.

Big thanks to LMAbacus for translating this for us!  You can find the original version on twitter (Nick) (Judy), and this time, you don't need to read right to left!

Story: Gift Of The God

lunakidz
[Hurt/Comfort][Romance][One-Shot][Rating K-9]

This story follows Nick Wilde as he recounts his past. The story is written in a way where it leaves the reader in the dark and the story is slowly revealed through flashbacks. This way of telling really drags the reader into the story. Along with great flow and excellent writing, this one-shot does not fail to impress. -Namicle

Merch Review - Disney Infinity Judy & Nick Figures


Surrika Tunnah here!  This time I have a review of the Disney Infinity Zootopia figures!

Now, these are just a review of the figures as aesthetic- This will not touch on what they do in game.  I actually don't have any clue how they play because even though they were released, they are not available to play as on PC.  And with the studio shut down, I doubt they ever will be now.

Such a shame.

But, if you want to read about how the figures look and work purely as figurines, well, I'll catch you after the break!

Comic: Rabbit and Fox in Love (Original by Tama)

The medium of movies allows for an incredibly wide range of actions and expressions to be seen, but one of its weaknesses is its difficulty in dealing with internal dialogue, which tends to slow down the pacing and makes for boring viewing. That's where comics shine, allowing both external and internal dialogue to be revealed, while still maintaining visual detail. This heartfelt comic only shows a snippet of our protagonists' daily lives, but also all their feelings for each other that remain unsaid.

Thanks to Tama for making the original comic (and check out her other comic Making Up if you haven't already), and to LMAbacus for translating and editing it!  Check out the original over on Pixiv, and the translated version after the break!  As usual for translated comics, read from right to left!

Story Updates 15 November 2016- Chapters and Updates and Art, Oh My!



And so, The Fox and The Rabbit, which hasn't updated since August, returns!  This chapter was initially too explicit for ZNN, but I talked to the author and worked out a deal.  The version that is posted to ZNN is still SFW (though still rated M).

So, here's the policy going forward:  If your story has scenes that we deem to be crossing a line from suggestive into explicit content, and you still want it featured on ZNN, please consider making the explicit scenes available as either a separate story, or only visible on platforms that ZNN is not featuring.  In this case, we were featuring the Fanfiction.net version of the story, so that is the clean version.  If you're following it on AO3 or Wattpad, it'll still have the sex, so read at your own discretion.

If you have any questions about if your fic is okay, email me at Submit@ZootopiaNewsNetwork.com, or talk to me on Discord on the servers in the sidebar.  I want to see your stories on here, but I'm not going to lower ZNN's standards for one fic.

NaZoWriMo Week 3: The middle part


It's that time again folks! One more week has passed on our NaZoWriMo! Two full weeks have past since the start of our event here, and we're officially halfway through the month! November has been a busy month for me so far, and I'm sure it has been for a lot of you too. But we've made it to the halfway point, so we're almost there!

As for the novels themselves, don't forget that you're writing these for fun, not because you have to. I want to see you all do the best you can, but the event loses its charm if you're struggling and forcing yourself to work like this.

Anyways, I've got a few short tips for all of you out there to keep writing. Check them out after the break!

Comic: The Night Howlers Effect (by Borba) [FULL COMIC]

Has Nick gone Savage?  Is Judy actually dead?  Did a harmless prank go horribly, horribly wrong? What happens now!?

Thankfully, we have the complete comic here, so all of these questions will definitely be answered.

Thanks to Borba for the original comic!  I have no idea how, but the Zootopia fandom seems to have been blessed with a plethora of absolutely phenomenal comic artists!  The action, the emotion, the intensity of the scene that plays out... all of it is absolutely magnificent!

You can find the comic over on deviantart.  Or, as usual, you can read the full story after the break!

Happy Veterans Day!

Today is Veterans Day in America.  So, for those of you who served in the military, no matter which nation or branch, ZNN salutes you!  Thank you so much for your service, and for the sacrifices you made to keep the people you love, as well as complete strangers, safe from harm!  Even those who did not serve in combat roles, or who served in domestic services such as a local police force, we honor you today!

Thank you for all you do to make the world a better place!

And now for an official WildeHopps Salute!

November 11 is Pocky Day in Japan! The four ones in 11-11 resemble the long thin shape of the iconic snack, and that means a whole lot of pocky game fun!

Story: If You're Hurting, So Am I

(Source: Ziegelzeig on DeviantArt)
[Romance][Hurt/Comforted][Sequel][T-13]

I like to think of this story as the "Dark Night" of the fanfic world. It took everything that was great about "A Different Goal", but added to it and produced a better product overall." The story focuses more on Nick and Judy's relationship as it is put to the test. Pixiestick is able to leverage this idea and their writing skills to create some truly emotional and beautiful moments. Overall, I highly recommend the "A Different Goal" series, and especially "If You're Hurting, So Am I"! ~Namicle

Description : After a year together, Nick and Judy face their first real test as an interspecies couple. Sequel to 'A Different Goal'.

Comic: The Moon and the Rabbit (Original by Enuoo)

Throughout history, the moon has been a source of wonder and mystery, and that enchanting aura can be found throughout this wonderfully illustrated comic! After a hard day's work, Judy and Nick strike up a conversation before a brilliant full moon, only to find their reflections on the symbolism of the moon reflecting back onto their own relationship.

Thanks to Enuoo (えぬおー) for making the original comic, and to LMAbacus for translating and editing it!  Check out the original over on Pixiv, and the translated version after the break!  As usual for translated comics, read from right to left!
