Believe it or not, it’s been a good while since we’ve had a proper Disney animated film. The last one was BIG HERO 6, and that came out way back in November of 2014. Needless to say, we’re completely overdue, and ZOOTOPIA is only a short couple months away.
So far, ZOOTOPIA has had an interesting run of trailers. The first “teaser” was an unnecessary explanation of what the world was (as if a world full of talking animals was suddenly hard to understand), and the first official “trailer” wasn’t so much a trailer as much as it was an extended scene from the movie (though it was a funny one). The second trailer was much more in-keeping with the typical trailer tradition, but it seemed to try just a bit too hard to tug on the heartstrings for my taste.
Now, Disney has released an official trailer for the UK, and I have to say, I think it’s the best one so far. Also, just a word of warning, the film is apparently called ZOOTROPOLIS in some countries, so don’t get confused when you see that word plastered on the screen.
As I mentioned earlier, I think this to be the strongest of the three other trailers, but at the same time, I think it works as a terrific companion to the domestic trailer we got about a month ago. While that trailer focused more on Judy Hopps and her own motivation to prove herself as a cop, this one follows the con artist fox Nick Wilde, and how he ends up getting roped into helping Hopps solve her mystery.
While each of the trailers so far has had their own strengths and weaknesses, no matter which way you slice it, this seems to be quite the fun ride, and I can’t wait to catch the flick in theaters.
What did you think of this international trailer? Let us know in the comments down below!
