Zootopia Voice-Over Casts and Show Runners
Scheduled to be release is the United States early next year, Zootopia stars Disney veteran Ginnifer Goodwin who will lend her voice once again to the studio for a new Disney character named Judy Hopps - the first bunny of Zootopia's police force. Joining her is award-winning actor, director and producer Jason Bateman who will give voice to Nick Wilde, a scam-artist, fast-talking fox. Together, they will forge an unlikely partnership to overcome odds presented to them and solve a mystery bound to be discovered.
Rich Moore, who co-directed the latest Disney movie along with Byron Howard, talks about how "Goodwin brings 'very centered sweetness, tremendous heart and a great sense of humor' to Judy," as USA Today reported. Moore, "but the bunny can be a spitfire, too - She's a little Pollyanna mixed with Furiosa," obviously referring to Charlize Theron who played the said character in Mad Max: Fury Road.
Howard is quick to give warning, "And don't call Judy cute," adding that, "People have said that to her all her life. She's a little sensitive about that."
Talking about his latest character, Bateman described Nick to be "a crafty, sarcastic schemer, and that I've been doing in parts since I was 12." The Golden Globe award-winning actor recounted on asking how the show runners would like him to portray his character, "I foolishly said, 'what kind of voice do you guys want me to do?' And they just looked at me like I was an idiot and said, 'Just do what you do. Just talk.' "
For her part, Goodwin spoke fondly about her character, "she gets hoppity emotionally." Goodwin further explained that, "People mistake kindness for naivete or stupidity, and she is a good girl through and through. But she's not a dumb bunny."
Grammy award-winner Shakira will lend her golden voice to Gazelle, who is also known as the biggest pop star in the entire Zootopia. Shakira will also sing an all-new original song 'Try Everything' for the movie. The international superstar expressed her excitement on playing this new character from Disney's Zootopia.
