Fans of Zootopia, rejoice! It would appear that Disney is making the animated mega-hit into a trilogy of films.
According to Tommy Lister, who played Finnick in the original movie, there are at least two new movies in the works.
“I can tell you for sure I’m doing another Zootopia with Disney. We’re doing three of them. (There were) three Madagascars. We’re gonna replace that. We’re the biggest film that Disney is producing. The last one was $240 million. This one I’m hearing will be $300 million. That’s what they spent on the budget, not the advertising. But the movie made $2.6 billion, with merchandising and the box office.”
This makes total sense in light of the news about Zootopia coming to Shanghai Disneyland (and likely Animal Kingdom) as Disney wouldn’t make the investment without a longterm plan for the franchise to stay relevant.
There’s been no official announcement from Disney about the sequels, but with Ralph Breaks the Internet and the upcoming Frozen 2, they clearly have no aversion to theatrical sequels anymore.
