Walt Disney Animation Studios initially announced a Zootopia (2016) short form series coming to Disney+ on Investors Day in 2020. At D23 Expo on Friday, Disney gave fans more information about the long-awaited show!
Zootopia+ will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on November 9, 2022. The series will contain six episodes titled “The Real Rodents of Rodentia,” “Duke the Musical,” “Hopp on Board,” “The Godfather of the Bride,” “So You Think You Can Prance,” and “Dinner Rush.” Each episode follows a different Zootopia resident.
Disney did not say whether Shakira would return as Gazelle or lend her musical talents to the miniseries. However, the “Try Everything” singer is currently facing heavy fines and a hefty prison sentence for tax evasion. Though a sequel has reportedly been in the works for years, Disney did not provide an update on future Zootopia films.
Inside the Magic will continue to share updates throughout D23 weekend. Disney D23 Expo is “The largest Disney fan event in the world,” and this year’s convention is sure to be something special. D23 Expo celebrates the beautiful worlds of The Walt Disney Company, including Disney, Marvel, Pixar, and Star Wars, across film, television, theme parks, and more!
