Recognize that ‘Stang folks? Sure ya do, it’s the one Steve McQueen drove in Bullitt, (the same year and model anyway.)


And with that, we present, for your consideration, a collection of Zootopia concept and fanart pieces, dedicated to the fine art of getting from one place to another.

Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source-links.

I – Planes (etc.)

Concept aircraft that never made it into the movie.  Hopefully, we’ll get to see this in the sequel.

Here’s one that did make it into the movie; as matter of fact, this entire scene made it onto the movie, (sans the car-chase, that is.)

Concept pics of the blimp and its under-truck

This one is NOT concept art–though it very well could be.

2 great pieces for the price of one.  That airplane is supposed to be a Spitfire, btw.

Gotta love that retro stewardess outfit Skye is wearing.  (Yes, that’s what flight attendants were called back then.)

III. Automobiles

First up, a series of concept art pics, depicting some of the vehicles intended to be shown in the film, some of which were used in the film.

Case in point, the trolley at the bottom made cameo in the movie, (during the scene where Judy chased Duke Weaselton through Savanna Central.)

I’ve actually driven the RL version of the truck depicted in the lower-left corner of this pic
