March 10, 2016
Walt Disney Animation Studios (WDAS)’ newest feature film,Zootopia, opening in theaters everywhere this Friday, March 4, draws upon a rich legacy of Disney films with animals at its center, from The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (1949) to Bolt (2008). But audiences will see for the first time in Zootopia technical advances in how these animals come to life on screen. Never before has it been possible for animators to visualize such a vast array of animals so realistically, with fur that’s more lifelike than any other Disney animated film.
