Animated Films – 'Zootopia'

By DAVID WEINER

August 12, 2013

Director Byron Howard (Tangled) and writer Jared Bush talked up their fun animated comedy adventure Zootopia (a working title, in theaters 2016), showing detailed drawings and concepts of their imaginative animal city. The film tells the story of a fast-talking fox who goes on the run when he's framed for a crime he didn't commit, teaming up with his natural enemy -- a self-righteous rabbit cop -- after the two become targets of a conspiracy. Sounds serious, but the footage was anything but – lots of fun anthropomorphic characters and clever interpretations of natural habitats turned into colorful city dwellings.
