After the splendid success of Disney’s Oscar nominated Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur, the studio is all set to kick-start 2016 unusual and exciting animated film. Zootopia boasts of stellar voices such as international superstars Shakira, Jason Bateman, Ginnifer Goodwin, Idris Elba and more!
International superstar Shakira is lending her Grammy winning voice to Gazelle, the biggest pop star in Zootopia. There are fun facts about Zootopia one of them is that artists were inspired by Mufasa from Disney’s classic film “The Lion King” when creating the look of Mayor Lionheart!
And what’s more, in this movie a single giraffe has more individual hairs on it—nine million—than every single character in either Frozen, Big Hero 6, or Wreck-It Ralph. Keep in mind that the filmmakers had to manipulate each individual hair on its own—and there would have been a lot of hair even if they hadn’t gone to such lengths. The film is, after all, about animals who walk, talk and dress like humans. So to make an entire movie full of furry animals, they had to create a whole new language in the computer to make it possible.
“When Snow White was released, it really was a technical achievement,”
said Zootopia producer Clark Spencer.
“And it really is our goal, as a studio, each and every day, to push technology and innovation. Zootopia follows in the footsteps of Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, and we’re competitive. Each of us look at our films and say ‘How do we go to that next level?’ And that’s really been an extraordinary journey for all of us in bringing this world to life.”
Directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore, Zootopia opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.
