What Will Zootopia 2 Be About?
Zootopia 2’s premise is unknown, however, Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, the film’s primary characters, are likely to return. Without those two faces, the sequel is incomplete.
Zootopia 2 will likely continue from the first film, where Judy becomes a respected police officer and Nick becomes the ZPD’s first fox officer and Judy’s partner. As they face new challenges and encounter new people, their smart guy, comedic, yet compassionate dynamic will flourish as in the first movie.
Zootopia, the first film, introduces Zootopia, a city where elephants and shrews live. After becoming the first rabbit police officer, Judy Hopps swiftly learns the challenges of law enforcement. Judy jumps at the chance to solve a difficult case to prove herself. Unfortunately, she must work with Nick Wilde, a cunning fox who complicates her job.
This lighthearted family animation is surprisingly deep. Zootopia addresses tolerance, unlike the typical animated buddy cop film. The film, about a city mystery, adds one of the best conspiracy thrillers to crime flicks while being amusing.
Do Judy & Nick Have Kids in Zootopia 2?
Many will be curious as to whether Judy (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Nick (Jason Bateman) have developed a love relationship since their first movie, possibly even resulting in childbirth.
In an earlier interview with EW, co-director Rich Moore disclosed that they will “have to take on [the question]” of the relationship between the two main characters if/when they decide to make more.
However, the director would not comment on whether or not the two had a romantic relationship:
“We will have to take on [the question], what is Nick and Judy’s relationship like? And somebody’s going to be disappointed. It will either be romantic, or it will stay a friendship, and those who ship [them] are going to go crazy, and those who just want them to be friends will say, ‘Why did you make it a romance?’ So we need to gird ourselves for that.”
Is There Already a Trailer for Zootopia 2?
It’s possible that Zootopia 2 is still in its early stages of development because the announcement was made so recently. As of right now, there are no indications of a trailer, but check back soon for developments!
