Our favorite characters from the land of Zootopia are back. This time, their stories will be shared further Disney+ next Wednesday 9 November. To celebrate the return of our favorite talking animals Disney+ has released a new trailer for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ new series Zootopia+. Just like everyone else Disney+ originals, all six episodes will be available on the streaming service on Wednesday.
Zootopia+ returns to the fast-paced mammal metropolis of Zootopia in a short series that delves deeper into the lives of some of the Oscar®-winning feature film’s most exciting inhabitants, including Fru Fru, the fashion-forward arctic shrew; ZPD dispatcher Clawhauser, the sweet-toothed cheetah; and Flash, the smiling sloth who is full of surprises. The series is directed by Josie Trinidad (Co-Head of Story, “Zootopia”; Head of Story, “Ralph Breaks the Internet”) and Trent Correy (Director, “Once Upon a Snowman” and “Drop”), and produced by Nathan Curtis (Associate Producer, “Encanto” and “Raya and the Last Dragon”).

2. The Real Rodents of Little Rodentia – Newly engaged, Fru Fru begins her wedding planning with enthusiasm and flourish – at least until her scene-stealing cousin Tru Tru arrives to assume the role of Shrew of Honor.

3. Duke the Musical – After being busted and arrested in a giant donut – compliments of Officer Judy Hopps – clever criminal weasel Duke re-evaluates his life and ponders where he went wrong – in song.

4. The Godfather of the Bride – A moving tale of the mighty arctic shrew known as Mr. Big visits Mrs. Mrs.’s big day when he delivers a revelatory father-of-the-bride speech.
