We’ve seen two-dimensional artwork from Disney Animation’s next feature Zootopia, but now we’re finally getting a look at the mismatched pair of critters at the heart of the film. Meet Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), a con-artist fox, and Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), a rookie rabbit cop hoping to crack a major case.
In the animal city of Zootopia, a fast-talking fox who’s trying to make it big goes on the run when he’s framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Zootopia’s top cop, a self-righteous rabbit, is hot on his tail, but when both become targets of a conspiracy, they’re forced to team up and discover even natural enemies can become best friends.
USA Today also talked to Bateman and Goodwin about their characters. Bateman describes Nick as “a crafty, sarcastic schemer,” and Goodwin calls Judy “a little Pollyanna mixed with Furiosa.” Color us curious.
