It’s finally happening.
After 7 long years, it’s finally happening!
Today, during Disney’s Q1 earnings call, Bob Iger announced that a sequel to Zootopia is in the works at Walt Disney Animation Studios, along with additional sequels to Frozen and Toy Story. This has been given even more confirmation by Jared Bush.
We will keep you posted as news emerges, but until then, I’ll just be over here, screaming in excitement.
Update: Ginnifer Goodwin teased it on Instagram too! With a nod to her husband, Josh Dallas’ role, as well.

As always, Try Everything.
About. Damn. Time. FINALLY!
OMGGGG Lizzo starts playing OMGGGG IM SO HAPPY!!!!
Given the lackluster quality of Disney’s more recent movies, I’m not gonna get hyped. We’ll see if its any good when it comes out.
Strange World was definitely not well pushed by Disney’s marketing department, but I wouldn’t call it lacklustre. Sure maybe not up to the calibre of Frozen or Tangled, but definitely not bad either. Encanto, the previous work, was amazing, and Raya was good too.
I’m curious what you consider “lacklustre”
I wouldn’t call “Raya” great by any stretch of the imagination. It was okay at best. Throughout the while it felt like I was watching an Avatar:the last Airbender with some dragons and naughty tentacles mixed in to avoid lawsuits
No, it is a great movie. Also, the Avatar similarities are ultimately superficial. Same with the people who say Coco is ripped off The Book of Life when in reality it doesn’t: just because you have a movie with similar elements does NOT make it a ripoff.
Plus, people would even say that Zootopia itself is a ripoff of previous anthro films.
This, 100% THIS!
Would love to be wrong, but given current Disney I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s either completely meh or even a burning dumpsterfire shitting all over the original. (a la Ralph breaks the Internet) Original Zootopia already was released in a hit or miss era. And I always felt it was as good as it was by a series of happy accidents rather then careful planning. And it’s only gotten to a point of more misses and less hits for Disney since far as I’m concerned. A lot of their post-Zootopia offerings sucked honestly.
As I said, would love to be wrong. I’d already be very happy if it’s half as good as the original. But I won’t be hyped. We’ll see if it’s good or not. Or if it’s more of a case of “You shouldn’t have… No really, you really shouldn’t have.”
Negative? Perhaps, but Disney’s MORE then earned that from me over the years. I’m not expecting a ‘The Last Wish’ here. But I’ll still give it a chance. And we’ll see if ‘Oh that wasn’t so bad at all!’ or ‘Wow, I didn’t think it even could BE this bad!’
Please don’t be that pessimistic, fellow Zootopia fan: just because there are movies you don’t like DOES NOT mean therefore it’s bad. Also, Ralph Breaks The Internet isn’t that bad, either.
YESSSSS omg brb litterally crying rn. Z+ was a little lackluster imo but I’m putting all my faith into Nick and Judy being back on the screen.
How is Z+ lacklustre? It’s a great way for the creators to jump to the sequel (and to show the world of Zootopia more often).
Zootopia 2 in 2024
Ok… I watch Return to Zootopia again. The actual sequel has big shoes to fill after that great fan project!
This fan Project is a Masterpiece ^^
WILDEHOPPS AND FNAF MOVIE YESSSSSSSS
There’s no fnaf movie! Why the f would there be one?
A FNAF movie is been filming in her moment
What next? Valve announcing Half Life 3?
Everyone knows Valve can’t count to three
FINALLY!!!!!!!! PLEASE give us WILDEHOPPS!!!
(and please just give us a good sequel, I know Disney unfortunately doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to good sequels. All I want is for them to keep in mind: who the characters are, what the main themes of the film are, and just tell a good story that feels like Zootopia, just like Zootopia+ managed to keep that Zootopia feel to it.)
If this news came out years ago, I would have been thrilled to hear it. Looking at Disney now though, I’m terrified.
Yeah, honestly, a lot of people here already saying what I’ve been saying. Disney is a complete woke dumpster fire lately and they’re putting out pure garbage. I’m very, very concerned. I certainly hope they put out something great, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
“Woke”? Zootopia has been literally Disney’s most “woke” film to date: with its explicit commentary on institutional racism, misogyny, etc. Why do you act like “woke” is a bad thing?
Zootopia wasn’t that explicit with its messages. Even the directors said that the allegories most people point out was a happy accident, which just shows that they wanted a story first and foremost. I think what the comment above was referring to “woke” in the new sense: a show, movie, or product trying way too hard to push a message over telling a story or appealing to the audience.
There’s nothing wrong with providing a message or allegory so long as it’s subtle, doesn’t break the immersion for the viewer, and doesn’t lean too heavily into a belief that would be disagreeable. Disney, sadly enough, hasn’t been doing that recently. Rather than tell an engaging story that entertains all ages and beliefs, they keep trying too hard to insert messages or allegories either too explicit or controversial.
Even though I’m hesitant to get excited, I truly hope that this sequel does great with its story and message. Even with some Disney’s more…disagreeable materials released recently, Encanto was a great release that was made by the same people who made the original Zootopia, hopefully signifying that they, or at least Jared Bush since Rich Moore left Disney, will still have the charm and wisdom to write and direct a new Zootopia that everyone will love. If they can do as well as they did with the original and its mini series counterpart, then I’ll be a happy camper.
Im hoping its still directed by Byron Howard, he is the true heart & mind of Zootopia, more than Rich Moore since he is one that really created Judy&Nick design.
Oh whoops, I meant Byron Howard. Byron Howard is still at Disney, so good chances he is directing.
Either too explicit or controversial? Bruh, the movie is very explicit in its themes. Also, I still don’t get your claim that Disney has been “doing too hard to insert messages and allegories”: it just sounds like reactionary partisan rhetoric against actual good causes. Plus, the use of the word “woke” is inaccurate and misleading (especially if you search up what “woke” means).
I don’t consider the themes of Zootopia explicit (especially the claims of addressing misogyny, those I just don’t get) due to the characters and world setting contradicting real world themes being 100% present. Like how people say that the film is ultra explicit on real world racism, yet they ignore that the mayor and most of the police force are predators, with the mayor being elected by a prey population that outnumbers predators ten to one. Or how the city’s turmoil wasn’t based on predators naturally being discriminated against, but by an undeniable fact that only predators were going savage. It’s fear and discrimination that was created based on a frightening event happening, not something institutional.
And I’m sorry if you don’t understand what I’m saying regarding Disney trying too hard to insert messages, but if I gave an example here it could start a comment war, and I don’t want to be responsible for that.
And lastly, regarding how you said I used the word “woke” incorrectly, I already mentioned how that word has a newer meaning today that relates more to the messages‘s intent over its meaning. The old meaning of woke is just fine, but the new meaning is something entirely different.
Since it seems like you won’t let me reply to your comment below, let me spell it out for you: obviously, the predators and prey are not indicative of actual races, but the movie is still a metaphor for racism; your claim that it’s not institutional is dishonest and ignore the various instances of institutional racism, such as the ice cream shop scene or even the fact that before Judy there were no rabbit-officers; or most of all (which you pointed out) Bellwether. Your last point defeats your premise because she is the mayor and is taking advantage of the chaos. If that’s not institutional I don’t know what is. Plus your refusal to show examples proves that you might be racially biased. The new “meaning” of woke is a myth made up by the far-right out of paranoia and that it shouldn’t annoy or offend you if you’re not racist.
“your claim that it’s not institutional is dishonest and ignore the various instances of institutional racism, such as the ice cream shop scene”
That is the only scene I can think of that’s a bit on the nose, so much so that it goes over real world racism. Like seriously, in this day and age, who would ask a customer if there aren’t stores specifically for their kind? Not only has segregation been dead for decades now, but you could be sued for violating the most obvious anti-discrimination laws.
“or even the fact that before Judy there were no rabbit-officers”
How does that related to racism? Isn’t it very, very, VERY clear why there weren’t rabbit officers? Just because there aren’t a lot of certain people in a certain field doesn’t mean racism or any form of bias is involved. It’d be like saying call centers discriminated against the disabled since they don’t hire deaf people; obviously discrimination isn’t the problem.
“Or most of all (which you pointed out) Bellwether. Your last point defeats your premise because she is the mayor and is taking advantage of the chaos. If that’s not institutional I don’t know what is.”
I meant Lionheart. I even specifically said the mayor was a predator. He was voted in by, according to Bellwether, a population that had prey outnumbering predators ten to one.
“Plus your refusal to show examples proves that you might be racially biased.”
Or that I don’t want to start a comment war. Like I’ve already said multiple times.
“The new “meaning” of woke is a myth made up by the far-right out of paranoia and that it shouldn’t annoy or offend you if you’re not racist.”
If you want to think that way, then sure. It’s not factual, but there’s nothing I can say here to argue my case that wouldn’t spiral things out of control. And I already know, based on what you’ve written and how you’ve ignored what I’ve written, you wouldn’t listen anyway. You’ve decided your case, and I’ve decided mine.
Once more, you won’t let me reply. As for the ice cream scene, it literally proved my point: even though there’s no longer any de jure segregation, there’s still this kind of discrimination under the government’s nose; the fact that Judy (or any other police officer) did not sue the shop-owner based on his conduct towards Nick hints at a subconscious bias in official systems like the police. “Like seriously, in this day and age, who would ask a customer if there aren’t stores specifically for their kind?” That’s what this scene is critiquing: nowadays, sometimes they will do that despite the de jure ban against this kind of stuff.
“Just because there aren’t a lot of certain people in a certain field doesn’t mean racism or any form of bias is involved. It’d be like saying call centres discriminated against the disabled since they don’t hire deaf people; obviously, discrimination isn’t the problem.” The latter point ironically re-enforces what the ZPD assumed about Judy — that she’s too small or weak –, but she revealed that she is perfectly capable of handling a job; your point about deaf people ignoring that even they could be capable of amazing things. Plus, the writers intended Judy’s struggle to be a metaphor for how women are treated in the workspace — like there’s only one other officer explicitly described as female, and she’s preferred more because of her body shape and size. At the same time, Judy doesn’t fall into their standards.
“I meant Lionheart. I even specifically said the mayor was a predator. He was voted in by, according to Bellwether, a population that had prey outnumbering predators ten to one.” The same thing could be said about Obama or even Nelson Mandela: both of whom were elected into the presidential office of Black descent, but there’s still de facto systematic racism engrained within their respective societies; for the latter, South Africa is also overwhelmingly Black, yet the legacy of Apartheid still lingers on with the inequality between the generally well-off Whites and the poorer Blacks, despite the latter being the majority (same could be said about the Kingdom of Bahrain, where, despite having a Shi’a Muslim majority, the Saudi-backed King is a Sunni Muslim who performed tactics of making Sunnis the majority that was eerily similar to Bellwether’s methods against predators).
“Or that I don’t want to start a comment war. Like I’ve already said multiple times.” Proved my point.
“If you want to think that way, then sure. It’s not factual, but there’s nothing I can say here to argue my case that wouldn’t spiral things out of control. And I already know, based on what you’ve written and how you’ve ignored what I’ve written, you wouldn’t listen anyway. You’ve decided your case, and I’ve decided mine.” No, it seems like YOU are not listening; plus, it is a fact that the word “woke” is just a codeword for the Right alongside their (ironically) token non-white and female cohorts to confess their racism and misogyny.
Hopefully that answers your question in the best, most polite way possible. I don’t want this comment section shut down due to a comment war from anything I’ve expressed. I feel like there’s too much fighting amongst ourselves these days already.
The woke mind virus is the worst thing to happen to our society in a long time. Zootopia is really not woke, despite being about prejudice, because it refutes many of the sacred cows of the woke cult. For some time now, Disney has been absolutely destroying intellectual properties by ramming their ultra woke agenda down the audience’s throat with amateurish writing that fails to even meet the level of crappy fanfiction, while at the same time absolutely shitting on the source material, so I and many others are well justified in fearing that the masterpiece of Zootopia is headed for the same treatment.
You sound like some paranoid far-right idiot (ironically the one the movie refutes). “Zootopia is really not woke, despite being about prejudice, because it refutes many of the sacred cows of the woke cult” — LOL, that sounds like delusional talk: it is literally the opposite: the movie refutes the position of you people in the most “woke” way possible. “Disney has been absolutely destroying intellectual properties by ramming their ultra-woke agenda down the audience’s throat with amateurish writing that fails to even meet the level of crappy fanfiction, while at the same time absolutely shitting on the source material” — ah, yes, they “destroy” their property simply because they showed empowered women and people of other races (sounds a lot like the movie this site is centred around), except it, did not fail; you did not even give examples. Also, what source materials? Now you’re just making up crap. “I and many others are well justified in fearing” — you and all the other incels. You’re saying all that because Zootopia is a “woke” film that succeeds and proves that being woke does not mean it’s terrible.
About dang time!
