Fans can enter the modern mammal title metropolis in Disney’s upcoming animated comedy, ‘Zootopia,’ with the release of the adventure film’s new trailer and images. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, which will distribute the movie in U.S. theaters on March 4, 2016, has released the new clip and photos for it’s 55th animated feature.
‘Zootopia’ features an ensemble voice cast that includes Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Shakira, Idris Elba, J.K.

Music plays an important part in ‘Zootopia,’ which was composed by Michael Giacchino. Shakira voiced Gazelle, the biggest pop star in the city, in the animated adventure comedy. The Grammy Award-winning singer also performed the film’s all-new original song, ‘Try Everything,’ which was written by singer-songwriter Sia and songwriting duo Stargate.
Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures has released the following synopsis for ‘Zootopia’:
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.
