As soon as we received the shipping envelope with Zootopia, before it was even opened, Frans started singing the ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah from “Try Everything.” We couldn’t wait to watch the film again and cleared our schedule for the evening for an impromptu family movie night with Judy, Nick, and “Flash, Flash, 100-yard Dash.” 🙂 You, too, can get a copy of Zootopia Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, or digital HD starting today!
Zootopia Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, and Digital HD
The movie was just as good the second time around with us laughing, gasping, and crying (well, only I did that) during all the same scenes. We also had fun looking out for hidden easter eggs that we missed during our first screening. A few of them are highlighted in this bonus clip.
I still can’t over the fact that many still say they don’t want to see Zootopia because it’s an animal movie. No, it’s a mystery action movie that happens to have animals…and it’s awesome. Even knowing “whodunit” didn’t detract from seeing it as the animation, storytelling, and emotional pull is still top-notch. Plus, we were able to take advantage of the closed captions to catch those quieter bits of dialogue we couldn’t pick up on in the theater.
Zootopia Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, and Digital HD Bonus Features
As for the bonus features, there are tons on the Zootopia Blu-ray. The best part was finding out just how drastically different the final storyline for Zootopia was from the original. I’m glad they changed it but the first story idea was quite intriguing as well. Other bonus features are outlined below.
- Zoology: The Roundtables – Ginnifer Goodwin hosts an in-depth look at the movie’s characters, animation, environments and more. The artists at Disney Animation give a rare and in-depth look at the complexities of bringing an all-animal world to life from the ground-breaking technology behind the characters’ fur and clothing to the varied and vast environments of Tundratown, Sahara Square and the Rainforest District as well as the deep thought and research given to bringing 64 unique animal species to life through animation.
- The Origin of an Animal Tale – Follow the story’s development from its origins to a big story shift that turned the film upside down. In this feature-length documentary, filmmakers give a candid look into the difficulties of creating the story of Zootopia and the bold decision to switch the main character late in the production process, putting one resolute rabbit center stage.
- Research: A True-Life Adventure – The filmmakers traveled the globe to find inspiration for the diverse characters and amazing city of Zootopia. They reflect on the importance of research and how a deep dive into animal behavior at Disney Animal Kingdom theme park and a deep immersion into animal society on the African savanna shaped and inspired the characters of Zootopia and changed the filmmakers’ lives forever.
- Z.P.D. Forensic Files – Find the movie’s hidden Easter Eggs. Every city has its hidden gems, especially when it has been created by the filmmakers of Disney Animation who love nothing more than sprinkling hidden references to some of Disney’s greatest animated features throughout the story.
- Scoretopia – Academy Award®-winning composer, Michael Giacchino spotlights five of cinema’s greatest percussionists and how they brought an organic, animalistic sound to his powerful and emotional music score.
- Deleted Characters – Directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore introduce citizens of Zootopia who did not make the final cut.
