Disney Animation just ruled the weekend thanks to Baymax and Big Hero 6, and now it is looking forward to 2016, setting dates for two animated films.
On March 4, 2016, the studio will launch Zootopia, which takes place in a world full of anthropomorphic animals and is about a rabbit cop and a fox accused of a crime. At the D23 Expo in 2013, Disney revealed that Zootopia has neighborhoods like Tundratown, Sahara Square, Little Rodenta, and Burrowborough, and is hope to The Wall Street Gerbil. “One of the key concepts is if you squint at any frame of film you might think you’re looking at an animal in a natural environment,” said director Byron Howard, who also helmed Tangled.
Disney Animation also revealed that Moana, its South Pacific-set adventure story with a female lead, will hit theaters Nov. 23, 2016.
