Bob Iger Confirms Disney is Working on Zootopia 2 After 7 Years

Having a bad day? We’ve got some good news to cheer you right up! Remember the 2016 blockbuster animated movie Zootopia? After its grand success at the box office and among critics, Disney took its time to green lit the sequel. Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed Zootopia 2 is officially in the works at the multi-media company.

In an early Q1 earnings call (reported via The Hollywood Reporter), Iger informed his investors that three of the biggest earners of the company’s animated ventures would get their sequels soon. Iger named Zootopia, Frozen, and Toy Story, the three franchises that will get another instalment soon.

Frozen 2 & Toy Story 4

Today, I’m so pleased to announce that we have sequels in the works from our animation studios to some of our most popular franchises, Toy Story, Frozen, and Zootopia. We’ll have more to share about these productions soon. But this is a great example of how we’re leaning into our unrivaled brands and franchises.

You heard the man! Zootopia 2, Frozen 3, and Toy Story 5 are already in development, and we’ll surely get further updates as the process moves along on the three projects. Zootopia is the only franchise that hasn’t seen as much fame as the other two in Iger’s announcement. 

But if Disney is moving ahead with a sequel for it after seven years, they must have high hopes for the film. Zootopia recently released a limited series on Disney+ in November 2022, featuring a spinoff story for the sloths, tiger dancers, and mobster shrews.

The mini-series’ success must have sparked the discussion to include Zootopia in the revival program of some of Disney’s biggest earners in the animated film genre. We don’t know which of the cast members will return to voice the famous characters or what plot the sequel will follow, but more information will soon be available.

Zootopia 2 will probably stick to its relatable characters, hilarious jokes, and subtle story to drive critical social issues into the spotlight. Let’s see if it can match or even outdo its original’s success.
