Byron Howard, the director of the upcoming WDAS film Zootopia, just shared a bunch of casting news on twitter. He also linked to this Oh my Disney post, with new pictures and details regarding the Zootopia characters. More below.
We already knew about Juddy Hopps, Nick Wilde and Gazelle, but the rest is brand new. We learned today that Idris Elba (as Chief Bogo), J.K. Simmons (as Mayor Lionheart), Nate Torrence (as Officer Clawhauser), Jenny Slate (as Bellwether), Tommy Chong (as Yak), Octavia Spencer (as Mrs. Otterton), Bonnie Hunt and Don Lake (respectively as Bonnie and Stu Hopps, Juddy Hopp's parents), Tommy 'Tiny' Lister (as Finnick) and Raymond Persi (as Flash) have joined the Zootopia voice cast.
Additionally, Alan Tudyk voices a character in a WDAS movie for the fourth time in a row, with a nod to his Frozen character; he plays Duke Weaselton in Zootopia.
You can learn more about the characters and see how each of them look by visiting Oh my Disney.
Zootopia is directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore and will be out on the 4th March (US) / 25th March (UK), 2016.
