Disney Unveils New Clips from ‘Zootopia’

Check out three new clips from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ upcoming animated feature ‘Zootopia,’ in theaters on March 4, 2016.

With less than a month to go before the animated animal adventure hits the big screen, Walt Disney Animation Studios has released three new Zootopia film clips.

In the first clip, you can meet overweight cheetah Officer Clawhauser and, in the second, find a relatively gigantic Judy Hopps as she chases a suspect through the streets of Zootopia‘s Little Rodentia.

Check out all three new clips below:

“Meet Clawhauser”

“Have A Donut”

“Assistant Mayor Bellwether”

Directed by Byron Howard (Tangled, Bolt) and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph, The Simpsons) and co-directed by Jared Bush (Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero), Zootopia takes place in the animal-filled city of the same name, as it follows optimistic Officer Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin). 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 (Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.

Other characters and the actors who will voice them include Shakira as Gazelle, Octavia Spencer is Mrs. Otterson, J.K. Simmons is Mayor Leodore Lionhearted, Tommy Chong is the laid-back and “enlightened” Yax the Yak, Nate Torrence is Benjamin Clawhauser, Jenny Slate, “a sweet sheep with a little voice and a lot of wool,” is Assistant Mayor Bellwether, Alan Tudyk is Duke Weaselton, “a small-time weasel crook with a big-time mouth,” Raymond Persi is Flash, “the fastest sloth working at Zootopia’s DMV — the Department of Mammal Vehicles, and Bonny Hunt and Don Lake are the voices of Judy Hopps’ mother and father, Bonnie and Stu.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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 optimistic Officer Judy Hopps 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, to solve the mystery.
