In a new Zootopia clip, Idris Elba’s Chief Bogo acknowledges the elephant in the room
A new Zootopia clip is now online, thanks to Walt Disney Animation Studios. In the player below, you can take a look at an early scene from the feature film wherein Chief Bogo (Idris Elba) speaks to his Zootopia police force and acknowledges the elephant in the room.
Directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore and co-directed by Jared Bush, Zootopia takes place in the animal-filled city of the same name, as it follows optimistic Officer Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin). She discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.
Other characters and the actors who will voice them include Shakira as Gazelle, Octavia Spencer is Mrs. Otterson, J.K. Simmons is Mayor Leodore Lionhearted, Tommy Chong is Yax the Yak (“a most enlightened, laid-back bovine”), Nate Torrence is Benjamin Clawhauser, Jenny Slate is Assistant Mayor Bellwether (“a sweet sheep with a little voice and a lot of wool”), Alan Tudyk is Duke Weaselton (“a small-time weasel crook with a big-time mouth”), Raymond Persi is Flash (“the fastest sloth working at Zootopia’s DMV — the Department of Mammal Vehicles”) and Bonny Hunt and Don Lake are the voices of Judy Hopps’ mother and father, Bonnie and Stu (“a carrot farmer from Bunnyburrow”).
Zootopia opens in theaters on March 4, 2016. If you didn’t already check it out, be sure to read our interview with Byron Howard and Rich Moore wherein Zootopia movies from the animal world are discussed!
