WATCH: New ‘Zootopia’ Clips Reveal Dazzling Production Design

New clips display a dazzling anthropomorphic world as a backdrop for the forthcoming film from Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Walt Disney Animation Studios has released three new clips from its forthcoming Zootopia, the first of which features Detective Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) arriving in the eponymous city:

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 follows the optimistic Hopps as she tries to break her first big case by teaming with fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voiced by Jason Bateman) and discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy.

The clips display an astounding level of imagination in terms of production design, providing a dazzling anthropomorphic world as a backdrop for the film:

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.

Also featuring the voices of Shakira, Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons, Nate Torrence, Jenny Slate, Tommy Chong, Octavia Spencer and Alan Tudyk, Zootopia opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.
