Zootopia Is Headed to Shanghai Disneyland

Nick Wilde Zootopia

Fans of Disney’s Zootopia can get ready to visit the anthropomorphic animal land for real soon, as a new park based on the 2016 animated film has been announced for China’s Shanghai Disney Resort.

Details are scarce, but the new Zootopia land will feature “state-of-the-art technology” to bring the lushly animated film to life, as well as chances to interact with versions of the movie’s stars Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, according to Deadline.

Construction is slated to begin later in 2019, though an official opening date for the new land has not yet been announced.

The new Zootopia land will be only the second expansion for the Shanghai-based Disneyland park since it opened in 2016, following the addition of Toy Story Land in 2018. The resort sees upwards of 11 million visitors per year.

Zootopia, while much loved in the United States, was even more of a juggernaut in China, bringing in over $235 million at the box office and breaking several records. The movie is still one of the country’s highest-grossing films.

Zootopia, featuring the voices of Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, Jenny Slate, Nate Torrence, Bonnie Hunt, Don Lake, Tommy Chong, J. K. Simmons, Octavia Spencer, Alan Tudyk and Shakira, follows the unlikely partnership between Judy Hopps, a rabbit police officer, and Nick Wilde, a fox con artist, as they uncover a conspiracy of disappearing predators beneath the surface of their animal utopia.
