Fallout: Zootopia gets an audiobook!

Art by Quirky-middle-child
One of my all-time favorite stories, Fallout: Zootopia, is now avaliable in an easy-to-manage audiobook format!

Read and Produced by Ink Stained Canvas (with some guidance on voices from the author, CiderStripes), this 10-hour long audio book has covered the first 20 chapters, so it's only 1/4 of the way done.  However, it updates on a regular basis, every single week, so if you subscribe to Ink's channel you'll be treated to more Fallout in your subscription feed every Monday!

Even better, if you'd like to download it so you can listen on the go, there are links to the soundcloud files for each chapter in the video description.  If you have never read Fallout: Zootopia before, you now have absolutely no excuse, do you?  After all, it's a free audiobook!

You can find all these chapters on Youtube, subscribe to Ink Stained Canvas, and start listening to one of the best Post-Apocalypse stories in the fandom after the break!

The r/Zootopia Anthology, Volume 1: Gritty Zootopia

Art by: sheep7465
[Rating M16][Drama][Crime][Suspense][Complete]

In a metropolis like Zootopia, there's bound to be a darker, more sinister side to what you see on the surface. This community anthology digs into the deepest bowels of the city to bring to light the vile incidents that occur behind closed doors, in pitch-black alleys, and in other nooks and crannies hidden throughout the city. The authors who wrote these chapters skillfully depict a grittier version of Zootopia, squalor and all, and you'll be fascinated by what they have to offer. Brutal, mysterious, and full of depravity. - DrummerMax64

Author: CDNCrow, Draes Letum, Lunar Blue, PullTogether, twocentnuisance, UneventfulWaffle, vulpinewizard
Description : This work is a community developed anthology from the Zootopia subreddit. Collectively, we voted on a common theme, and submitted stories based around that theme. For this volume, the theme of a gritty Zootopia was proposed by u/TheAckabackA. We hope you enjoy the anthology.

Rosanna Pansino makes the Big Donut on Nerdy Nummies!

There's a massive YouTube channel with over 8 Million subscribers that's all about baking and delicious treats.  And somehow I'd never heard of it until today.  There must either be something wrong with me, or with youtube's recommendation system, because this show is right up my alley!

As of writing this, Rosanna Pansino's newest installment of Nerdy Nummys is Trending on youtube at the #21 slot- and it hasn't even been out for a day yet!  Inspired by Zootopia and National Clawhauser Donut Day, Ros takes the Big Donut and makes a simple, entertaining video showing you how to make your own!

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to be in the kitchen.  This seems like a great challenge, and I wholeheartedly approve of giant donuts!

Check out the video after the break!

okay lets be real i'm probably just going to binge watch the videos on this channel and get myself really hungry rather than actually make anything but hey who cares

Comics: Target Sighted and High Four (by Axel Eg Andersson)

*Andy Lagopus runs in out of breath*
"WildeHopps isn't actually canon!"
*He dashes out of the room chased by an angry mob*

In all seriousness, Nick and Judy, while they have the potential to be the best couple in Disney history, never actually leave the territory of "best friends" in the movie.  WildeHopps is purely hypothetical until a sequel shows otherwise.

Of course, best friends make for the best couples, so by all means continue shipping them!  We'd be out of work if you didn't.  

Still, we don't see very many comics taking the other side of things, where Nick and Judy are just best friends who have each other's back in every instance - including scoping out potential partners for each other, and being totally prepared for the morning after.  Axel Eg Andersson... part of me loves this, and part of me hates it.  But both parts enjoy it, so I have no regrets featuring this!

Try Every Firework! (Mashup by Mashin' Jams)

Source: そば
Ah, fireworks.  You never cease to inspire at least some form of "ooh" or "ahh" from an audience.  It's a shame Gazelle didn't end her concert with some- all we got at the end of Zootopia were... I think they were confetti cannons?  Maybe they were some sort of firework, but they weren't the sort that light up the night sky.

Long story short, Try Everything needed more fireworks.  Thankfully, Mashin' Jams is here to help in their own unique way.  Combining Katy Perry's Firework with Shakira's Try Everything, you end up with one seriously explosive pop song!

Happy Memorial Day from ZNN

Source: TheWinterBunny
Today is Memorial Day in the United States.  It's one of the less flashy holidays, focusing more on remembering those who have fallen in battle defending people from threats foreign and domestic.  But it is by no means insignificant.  And despite our international audience, I think that it would be appropriate to take a moment to appreciate what this holiday is about.  This honor is applicable to everyone around the world who fights for those who cannot, after all.

While the focus of this holiday is primarily on those who served in the military, let us not forget that our police officers who also put themselves in harm's way to protect you.  Soldiers, Officers, and everyone else who is willing to risk their lives to save others, be they still alive or long dead... we thank you.  We salute you.  We honor you.

Let's have a moment of silence in honor of those we have lost to unnatural causes, and remember their selfless sacrifice.

~Andy Lagopus

Story: How to Treat a Festering Wound

Art by: Nightsy01
[Rating T13][Drama][Friendship]

Nick and Judy have successfully beaten Bellwether, but the Night Howler crisis is far from over for them. Zootopia is still fractured and rife with hostility between prey and predators, and unless they and their friends do something about it, matters will only continue to worsen. This story does an outstanding job of exploring the subterfuge and politicking going on as our heroes try to restore balance to their fair city. Absorbing and meticulously crafted, this is an exciting drama that will surprise you with its attention to detail, tense atmosphere, and emotional power. - DrummerMax64

Author: TheCatweazle
Description : Dawn Bellwether is arrested - now what? What about Judy Hopps, the bunny most predators consider to be Enemy Number One after the disastrous press conference? What about the con-fox Nick Wilde? Will he have a chance to become a police officer? Can they heal the wounds they have caused?

Comic: Black Jack Part 3.2 (Original by rem289)


Welcome to another installment of Black Jack by the very talented AoiMotion and Rem289.

In the previous part we could see Judy and Nick get ready for a movie night, but the fun really starts when the movie is over. If it just weren't for those annoying neighbors...


Check out the second half of part 3 over on tumblr, or after the break!

I Hate Everything doesn't seem to hate Zootopia!

I Hate Everything, in a shocking turn of events, seems to like something!  I know, it contradicts his name, but Zootopia appears to be on his list of movies he actually legitimately enjoys.

What makes me think this?  Well, in his newest video, I HATE SING (2016), he goes into great detail about how... wait for it... he hates Sing.  During his very entertaining critique of Illumination Entertainment's latest film, he compares it to another movie starring anthropomorphic animals that came out in 2016: Angry Birds Zootopia.

He uses the example of Zootopia to illustrate how there is absolutely no reason for the characters to be animals, and how Illumination wasted any potential for humor or character development based on this.  He claims that in Sing, the animals all do human things with zero acknowledgement of their animal traits, and that all the characters could be replaced with "grey goo people".  However, in Zootopia, he points out that the characters being animals "Is the entire point of the movie".  He then praises it further, saying "The people who made Zootopia actually had an idea for a movie".

Now, why should you care what some guy on the internet has to say about Zootopia?  I dunno. You don't have to if you don't want to.  But he has got over 1 million subscribers on Youtube, so he's a relatively big internet celebrity (of sorts).  Him saying good things about Zootopia on his channel, which is all about ripping apart terrible movies (as seen in his Search For The Worst series), is a pretty good thing in my book.  Plus his videos are fun, whether you agree with him or not.

Check out the video for yourself after the break, and let us know what you thought about Sing compared to Zootopia in the comments!  The part where he begins asking "Why are they animals" starts at 11:15, and the comparison to Zootopia comes at 12:36.

ZNN Reviews: The rare Byron Howard Serigraph!

Hello there!  I'm AgentExeider, and today I'm here to bring you the review of a very wonderful (and very exclusive) piece of artwork called “Summer in Zootopia” by Byron Howard! This is a limited edition of only 200 prints, each hand-signed and certified as genuine.

As of writing this they are still on sale from Cyclops Printworks, and you can order your own by following the link here!

Be warned- with a price tag of $200 for the print, along with the cost of a good frame and (if you really want to make sure it lasts) preservation treatment, this item can end up costing you between $300 - $500.  

That said, it's a print from BYRON HOWARD, signed by the man himself, that you get to keep forever!  In my opinion that's worth almost any price.

Check out the rest of my review after the break, along with a bit of background into what makes a Serigraph so special compared to other prints!

Story: Mistakes

Art by: Sprinkah
[Rating K9][Drama][Angst][Complete]

Can something that was once broken be mended? Nick and Judy certainly proved that with their special relationship in the film, but what if it goes too far this time? That's what this heartbreaking story tries to answer as it chronicles a trying time that our duo goes through, filled with sorrow, pain, and immense guilt. Sophie Ripley does a marvelous job in setting up this predicament and putting these two through a veritable flood of emotions, all leading up to a conclusion that will leave you breathless and astonished. - DrummerMax64

Comic: Inter Schminter Part 2 and 3 (Original by Spintherella)

Hello everyone, Dominic Faux here!

Today we're revisiting a rather well known, and slightly older comic. You may know Spintherella, and her comic Inter Schminter. Well, back in August of last year we featured chapter one of this comic. It was just getting started back then; now there are 14 whole chapters and a lot more has happened!

Today, we see the dynamic duo arrive in Bunnyburrow, and just in time for the Hopps Hoedown! But, with the stigma of inter-species relations, how will things go for our favorite bunny and fox duo?

Update on the Zootopia Lawsuit!

Source: ReyJJJ
Two months ago, ZNN covered the complaint leveled against Disney by Gary Goldman and Esplanade Productions, Inc. claiming that Disney had stolen an old pitch presented by Goldman and used that to create Zootopia without giving him any credit.  We discussed why we thought this motion was absurd back then, but now Disney's lawyers are stepping up to bat!

In a move that nobody is surprised by, Disney has filed for dismissal of the case, claiming:
"This is just another example in a long history of plaintiffs coming out of the woodwork after a motion picture has achieved critical and financial success to claim credit - and proceeds - where none is due."
In the motion to dismiss, Disney's lawyers compare and contrast the final movie of Zootopia with Goldman's pitch, referred to here as "Looney", which contained a live-action story about an animator creating a world of anthropomorphic animals.  Considering just how little actual detail about the proposed story was provided in the initial complaint, a lot of inferences had to be made, but from what Goldman and Esplanade Productions provided, it's very clear that these two movies are nothing alike.

Not only that, but Disney goes into great depth to compare and contrast the characters put forward by Goldman with the characters in Zootopia.  In my opinion, it's somewhat laughable that Goldman is even trying to make a case based on this, when what he provided are not real characters so much as they are archetypes or rough sketches.
I mean, just look at them side-by-side.
Either way, I hope that the judge overseeing this case sides with Disney and rules to throw this claim out.  If the legal team defending Disney sees this, remember...

Try Everything!

Zootopia comes to Disney Magic Kingdoms!


Who here likes Mobile Games?  I know I certainly do!  We've gotten quite a bit of cool stuff out of Zootopia: Crime Files, but that is by no means the only mobile game Disney has at their disposal.

Meet Disney Magic Kingdoms!  This free-to-play city builder game is Disney's more generic "everyone in Disney" game, where you can unlock characters from Chip and Dale to Wall-E and EVE as you build up your very own Disney Theme Park.  Developed by Gameloft (a company you may recognize as the group behind the My Little Pony mobile game), this follows a very similar pattern to their previous work: Two types of currency, timers on different things, and the option to pay your way past both of those obstacles to get what you want immediately.

And as you can see in the image above, Zootopia is making it's appearance in the next update!  According to the patch notes (included after the break) there are all sorts of new assets being introduced, from Little Rodentia to Nick's Pawpsicle Stand!  You can unlock Nick, Judy, Bogo, and Flash, and even set up a Zootopia Float if you want to.

Big thanks to Duplex Fields for sending this information our way.  Remember, if you see anything Zootopia related, don't assume we already know about it, send it in!

Comic AND Comic Dub: First Date (by Artbirchly)

We recently put together a list of all the comics we've featured before on ZNN, and, to my amazement, this wasn't on there!  How?!  It's a classic!

Instead of smacking myself in the head for letting over a year go by without featuring this amazing comic by Artbirchly, I'm going to give you guys an extra treat.  This post won't feature just the comic: We're also going to feature the comic dub by Brian Random!

Let's not waste any more time!  Check out the dub down below:


And check out the original comic over on Deviantart, or after the break!

Animation: Wake Up, Fox! (by Derek Pony)

What's that?  The fandom is evolving!  We've had 2D animations in the past, but now that people are familiar enough with the fan-made Blender models of Nick and Judy, 3D animations are appearing!

This simple animation of Judy making sure that Nick is up and going in time for work comes to us from Derek Pony, who, as I'm sure you can tell from the name, is mostly known for MLP animations.  But he did also bring us the animated comic "Compliment", so he's not a total stranger to Zootopia animations either.

Story: Zootopia: Firewatch

Art: xNIR0x
[Rating T13][Humor] [Romance]

It seems like a simple premise: the game “Firewatch,” but with Zootopia’s characters. What Bluelighthouse does with “Zootopia: Firewatch,” however, far exceeds that simple premise. The author creates a brand new and fascinating world that is explored in a beautiful and stirring fashion. Along with the rapid-fire and witty banter that will make you laugh as much as the characters do, the story’s emotional core both tugs on heartstrings and invites you to share in the triumphs and struggles of each character. There’s something very sweet and special about watching a romance blossom through a pair of walkie-talkies, and that relationship — and the forest all around it — come together marvelously in this tale. ~Euphonemes

Author: Bluelighthouse
Description : After dealing with some hard times in the city Nick takes a summer job as a fire watcher in a national park outside of Zootopia. Trying to get away from it all and find solitude Nick instead finds another fire watcher named Judy. Who is she? Will he risk letting someone he cant even see in? Keep your eyes open Nick, there is smoke on the horizon!

Zootopia included in new Disney World fireworks show!

Recently there's been a lot of buzz about the newest Fireworks Show at Walt Disney World.  Titled "Happily Ever After", this spectacle promised a celebration of all things Disney, with new music, new pyrotechnics, and, most importantly, new animation.  Disney allocated some of their best 2D Animators and imagineers to making this show come to life in a way that had never been seen before.

Boy, did they deliver.  The whole show is an 18 minute long celebration of the greatest Disney films, from The Little Mermaid to Aladdin, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and more!  Basically, every movie that is considered a "Disney Classic" is on display here, with some really amazing effects that transform Cinderella Castle in ways I never thought were possible!

I'm sure you're wondering, does Zootopia make an appearance?  You bet it does!  It's very brief, but at the 8:14 mark you can see Nick and Judy in front of the ZPD Graduation Banner, before being chased off by a Big Donut much bigger than the one in Little Rodentia.

If you plan on going to Walt Disney World anytime soon, I strongly recommend you check this show out.  Otherwise, you can check it out after the break!

Short Animation: Clover Blossoms (by Drawnbythestream)

You want to know what takes a lot of time and effort?  Animation.  So, over the past century, animators have been honing and refining the art, creating tools and techniques to make the process easier and less time consuming than it used to be (as all professionals tend to do).

But do you want to know something else fun about that?  When you're learning animation, your teacher will often make you throw most of the past century's advances in technology out the window.  Yup, forget about computers and tweening and the undo key, you have to go back to the basics and create the illusion of life with nothing but a pencil and some paper.  It's a very difficult task (especially if you decide to animate at 24 fps rather than 12, like I did...) but if you can learn this, you have the foundation to go anywhere and make anything.

DrawnByTheStream, I wholeheartedly congratulate you on this adorable animation of Judy getting a gift from an offscreen Nick Wilde.  This could not have been easy, and I hope your professor appreciates just how good this is!

Hey there guys!  Surrika Tunnah here with another book review.   However, this review is going to be slightly different than the norm.

Folks who follow my reviews will know that I am British, so any books I buy locally will be known as Zootropolis; so when I came across a book to review, it was the British version.  However, thanks to someone close to me I was able to obtain Zoomania, the German version of the book!

ZNN Interviews: Cimar of Turalis/WildeHopps


Hello again, Dominic Faux here with the second entry in ZNN's interview series!

Our awesome team has been hard at work and is back at it again with this next video. And this time we've set our sights on... Cimar of Turalis/WildeHopps! You may know him as the lead of the One Hundred Kisses project, or the writer of Always my Sly Bunny, Always my Dumb Fox -- and a few more of course. Cimar was a great interviewee, and we enjoyed the chance to get to know more about what makes him tick.

You can see the video interview just after the break. Of course, if you'd prefer audio only, we've got a link to the SoundCloud file here. We're very excited to keep working hard on this series, and we'll see you again for the next one soon!

Comic: Dilated eyes (Original by OceRydia)

What if Bellweather's plan had worked, just a little?

What if there was still fear being spread among the predators and prey? What if there still was hatred and fear towards each species? It would be hard to walk down the streets without being afraid. It would make it unbearable to deal with such persecution.

It would also make it much harder for a certain bunny to admit her true feelings to her crime solving partner.

OceRydia has made us a comic that follows Judy as she is trying to let Nick know her true feelings. The comic is still ongoing so you can join us as we find out if she is able to or not.

Check out the comic on DeviantArt, or right here after the break.

Story: Stars

Art by: Shuploc
[Rating T13][Friendship][Humor][Feels][Complete]

A splendid story that tracks the growth of Nick and Judy's unique and special bond as the fox endures the trials at the academy, all told through the medium of a digital screen. Limiting the format to just emails and texts, TMBrown does a fantastic job of putting a refreshing twist on a familiar scenario, showing that these two friends are more than capable of keeping in touch during their time apart. Capturing Nick's witty charm and Judy's animated optimism with ease, this appealing tale is one that you'll certainly enjoy, along with its unusual but effective mode of storytelling. - DrummerMax64

Author: TMBrown
Description : While Nick's at the police academy struggling to adapt to his new role, Judy has to solve a case that takers her to a predator part of town. They exchange e-mails and sometimes text chats to help each other through these tough times, cementing their friendship.

Dorkly features "weird" Zootopia Fanart

We didn't add that arrow.  They did.
A few days ago, the nerd news site Dorkly posted an article titled "Think Zootopia Fanart Didn't Get Super Weird?  You Were Wrong!"  Ah, Dorkly.  Poor, innocent, Dorkly.  You have no idea how deep this rabbit hole goes.

Wait, that was a poor choice of words.  Especially in this context.

You're barely scraping the surface of the tip of the iceberg.  As a self-proclaimed Expert on the Zootopia Fandom, I can tell you flat-out that what you featured is nowhere close to the weirdest stuff this community has produced.

That said, they do a decently good job of highlighting some of the more unique fan interpretations of Zootopia.  However, there are a few problems with the article itself.  For example, rather than linking to the super awesome picture, "Here Be Dragons: The Dragon's Mask" by TheWyvernsWeaver, they credit him as "Sunderance" while linking to the patreon both he and kulkum share.  Also, they featured TrashasaurusRex twice, not realizing that her deviantart account's name is Starlight10058.

Good effort, Dorkly.  But when it comes to Zootopia Fan Content, ZNN's got ya covered.

Check out their full article here or in link above, and let us know in the comments what you think the weirdest piece of Zootopia fanart you've seen is (but keep it SFW, this is a family site)!

Comic: Sly Bunny (by Dexter01992)

Imagine for a moment that Judy didn't let nick's speech about her being just a dumb bunny get to her.  Imagine she didn't step into that wet cement, and had instead opted to think up things that nick did do that are against the law in some way?

Dexter01992 is here to answer that question.  And boy, does Judy prove herself to be one sly bunny.

Check out the original over on Deviantart, and get the full comic after the break!

ZNN Spotlight #3: The Bunny of Winter!

Spin the spotlight, round it goes, where it lands, nobody knows!

And today it falls on…..
TheWinterBunny!

You may have heard of her before. TheWinterBunny has a really impressive art style that matches the look of the original movie. And of course, she enjoys the creation of our favorite bunny and fox duo.

Beyond that, her skies are simply gorgeous! Day or night, when she draws them, they’re a marvel to look at. And we can’t forget that she’s helped out the community, drawing a ton of other people’s Zoosonas. Her work is absolutely fantastic, and whenever she is open to commissions, I strongly recommend you take that offer while it lasts!


Well, I think that’s enough of an intro, check her out over on DeviantArt or tumblr and some of her art after the break!
