Zootopia 2’s Release Date is something we’ve all been looking for. While Walt Disney Studios hasn’t actually confirmed the existence of such a film, we have reason to believe it will be releasing in theaters soon. Zootopia happened to be one of Disney’s most successful ventures grossing a worldwide total of $1.024 billion against a $150 million budget. While the Zootopia film itself doesn’t end on every cliffhangers, it completely builds on the setting of the world as well as the characters within it. And seeing the success of the first film, Disney decided to invest in it. Come to think of it, the first film came out in 2016, even so, there are those who will release the show based on the setting. This could mean that they are trying to revive the world before it restarts.
According to a report that came out, the late Tommy Lister Jr. has confirmed at a fan meeting that Disney is aiming for the Zootopia trilogy. He confirmed at the time that he was working on one of the Zootopia films and Disney was planning to make another as well. The actor continued how the film Zootopia is one of the biggest films Disney has produced. He claims that Zootopia alone has a budget of $240 million along with its advertising. Even so, the film earned 2.6 billion, with both merchandising and box office. Meanwhile, the upcoming film has a planned budget of $300 million excluding advertising and marketing. However, the video of him sharing this news was immediately removed from social media. Nevertheless, it should be noted that Disney never came out publicly to deny the project.
Zootopia 2 Release Date
According to some reports, Zottopia 2 will be released on November 24, 2021. This is because Disney has apparently booked 8 release date spots in 2021 for some of the untitled films. While there is a high possibility that the film to be released on that date is Encanto, it has yet to be confirmed. So, unless Disney fails to release a teaser for Zootopia 2 this summer, it’s likely the film will be released next year. If the teaser comes out, it will give Disney almost 5-6 months before release. But this might then get in the way of Disney’s plans for its animated television series, Zootopia+. The show will feature the land of Zootopia while directing its attention to characters like Fru Fru, the polar rat, Flash, Sloth, and some of Gazelle’s friends.
As noted above, Disney is eyeing Zootopia to have its own trilogy. Because of this, they have tried to invest in the right place by making a show on it. Moreover, there is a Zootopia-themed Land which is currently being developed in Shanghai, China. This place will be located at the Shanghai Disney Resort. However, since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the country, construction has stopped. This investment will only build the Zootopia sequel to a huge success at the Box Office. And according to reports, Disney has already begun work on the third part in the trilogy, Zootopia 3: Saving Judy. The film will reportedly be released on June 29, 2024.
