Trailer Time: Zootopia Trailer #1 (2016) *Can Disney Animation Keep the Streak Alive?*

Can Walt Disney Animation continue its renaissance?  So dismally outshone by Pixar that it might as well have been dead, it looked like things were over for the House That Walt Built.  But after Tangled, Frozen and Big Hero 6, you could argue they’re operating on just as high a level (if not higher) than their Pixar brethren.  Either way, it’s great for Disney fans.

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, 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 (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,”

Trailer Time: Walt Disney’s Frozen Trailer #3 (2013)

I really did love Tangled.  It brought me back to the glory days of animation from The Little Mermaid through The Lion King and gave me some hope that the regular Disney animation studio was clawing its ways out of the “Home on the Range” period ashes.  I have to say, the proportion of anthropomorphic snowman to actual story is going to determine in large part this film’s success.  That’s just an early hunch on my part.  Third trailer out from Disney (though really the second when you consider the first consisted of the snowman and the reindeer fighting over the snowman’s nose).Frozen
