World Emoji Day: Zootopia emoji video, more celebrate Internet holiday
To mark World Emoji Day, Disney released a new video retelling the story of Zootopia with emojis.
The film, directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore, tells of police bunny Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) and con-artist fox Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) as they work together to uncover a conspiracy in the city of Zootopia.
Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Pixar’s Finding Nemo, both from within the Mouse House, have also received the emoji treatment. If you want Disney-themed emojis on your smartphone, the Disney Emoji Blitz game can help with that.

Elsewhere, Shonda Rhimes commended Google for creating a line of emojis representing women in various careers. “Look! Emojis now know women have all kinds of careers,” she tweeted.
The social media accounts for Power Rangers, Doctor Who, and the Kingsman sequel also got in on the World Emoji Day celebrations. The former put together a Red Ranger helmet using only emojis, while Doctor Who started a hashtag campaign to get a TARDIS emoji.
Fox recreated a poster for Kingsman: The Golden Circle — the one teasing the return of Colin Firth’s Harry Hart — using an eye patch-wearing emoji.
