Main work begins on Disney’s Zootopia

MAIN construction of Shanghai Disneyland’s Zootopia has begun, the resort said yesterday, after preparation of the site next to Fantasyland was completed.

The first Zootopia-themed land of any Disney park worldwide will immerse visitors in a mammal metropolis alongside their favorite characters from the movie, according to the Shanghai Disney Resort.

The new land will be home to a number of characters from the Academy Award-winning movie, including Nick and Judy who are already popular with visitors. Other fan favorites to feature will be Flash the Sloth, Gazelle, Officer Clawhauser, Chief Bogo and Yax the Yak.

The opening date of the new land has yet to be announced.

A week ago, Polar Bear joined Flash to make a surprise appearance on the wall around the site prompting excitement on social media. Visitors to the theme park took the opportunity to take selfies with posters of Flash, Polar Bear and three animal-sized doors on the wall.

“This is an immensely exciting time for Shanghai Disney Resort and Zootopia fans alike,” said Joe Schott, the resort’s president and general manager.

Zootopia is the second expansion at the resort after Toy Story Land.
