Following the addition of Disney·Pixar Toy Story Land last year, Shanghai Disneyland will soon embark on a second major expansion themed after the Disney animation movie Zootopia.
Disney revealed that the development of the Zootopia-themed land at Shanghai Disneyland is a result of the animated hit’s huge success worldwide and the strong resonance of the film’s characters and storyline among Chinese guests.
The new themed land will invite guests to fully immerse themselves in the mammalian metropolis of Zootopia, “where anyone can be anything”, the movie’s tagline. Guests will also be able to go on an adventure with lead characters Judy and Nick. There will be also be a brand-new attraction, alongside entertainment, merchandise and F&B offerings.
When it opens, Zootopia will be the eighth themed land at Shanghai Disneyland and the first-ever Zootopia-themed land at any Disney park worldwide.
Construction of Zootopia is scheduled to begin later this year.
