Special Art of the Day #275: Mrs. Wilde

Nick Wilde’s mother: we never saw her face in the movie, only a red skirt and a purple sweater, and yet, she’s been the subject of a tremendous amount of speculation (and fanart).

Is she still alive? What is her relationship with Nick, if so? How does she feel now that he’s gone straight to become a police officer? We may never know the answer to some of these questions (or at least not until Zootopia 2 hits the screen), but in a March 29, 2016, tweet, Zootopia co-director Rich Moore offered this glimpse into her character:

“Mrs. Wilde still lives in Zootopia, in the same apartment where she raised Nick. 🏢🐺 She’s waiting for a grandkit.”

Well, while she’s waiting, we present a collection of Zootopia fanart dedicated to Nick Wilde’s mother. Enjoy, and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source links.

Get your art after the break!

We begin with a few glimpse of Nick Wilde’s mom as she appeared in the film, seen… but not seen.

Remember when Nick told Judy about how “my mother scraped together enough money to by me a brand new uniform?”
Here she is waiting to present it to him.

Of course, when Nick was younger, it was a lot easier

While these days Nick prefers blueberries, when he was kit, he was more partial to raspberries.

Is anyone else getting the feeling that Judy had something to do with this reunion?

The next thing she say is, “So when am I going to see some grandchildren?”
“Mommmm, can’t you ever give it a rest?”
