‘Zootopia 2‘ and ‘Zootopia 3‘ Reportedly In The Works By Disney. Disney is hard at work developing a new land in Disneyland Shanghai themed around the popular animated film, Zootopia. Reportedly Walt Disney Animation Studios is also hard at work on two more sequels for the hit animated feature film.
Tommy “Tinny” Lister (Finnick) shared the news during a meet and greet with fans. Originally shared in a video that has since been taken down, Lister told fans, “I can tell you for sure I’m doing another Zootopia with Disney. We are doing three of them… We are the biggest film that Disney is producing. The last one was 240 million. This one I’m hearing will be 300 million. That’s what they spent on the budget, not the advertising. But the movie made 2.6 billion, with merchandising and the box office.”
With a new themed land opening soon in Disneyland Shanghai it makes sense that Disney would look to enrich the interest in the franchise by adding more stories for fans to love and want to be immersed into.
In December 2019 Shanghai Disney Resort President Joe Schott shared, “We are pleased to announce the start of main construction for the new land today, a significant milestone in its development. This expansion demonstrates Shanghai Disney Resort’s commitment to bringing new and unique experiences to our guests, offering more reasons for them to come visit us again and again.”
We can’t wait to see the new land open up in Disneyland Shanghai and are even more excited to hear two more films are on the way! Though no official premiere date has been announced, it appears that Zootopia 2 will be set to release in theaters sometime in 2021. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Disney!
