Who likes watching deleted scenes? I know I do! It’s always an experience getting to see what scenes wound up on the cutting room floor be it due to a need to cut down on film time, a change in the script, or because it simply didn’t fit the film. And given that Zootopia had an entirely different story at one point, it was inevitable that there’d be plenty of deleted scenes to pour over.
We’ve featured quite a lot of deleted scenes in the past here at ZNN, and thanks to Zootopia animator Jeff Williams, we’ve got yet another one. Well… more like a couple seconds of footage, really. Still, that means more of the benchmark quality frames and animation that helped to make this movie so great. And if the Zootopia 24/7 project was any indicator, every single frame in that movie can be viewed as a work of art.
Be sure to check the footage out below or over on Twitter. If you’re the kind of person who needs to see every last piece of footage in Zootopia or just wants to appreciate the movie’s animation a bit more, then you won’t want to miss out on this!

Look at that rain, and the lighting! Such a tense moment. I wonder if that was why it got cut? Too scary?
More likely just didn’t work with the rest of the end sequence; this would have required a different escape result entirely from what we got at this scene.
