When I was at the press junket for Disney’s Zootopia, I had the privilidge to meet and take photos with the walk-around characters from the film. My hope was that Walt Disney World and Disneyland would find a place for them in the parks soon. Disney has just announced that both Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde will be appearing in the parks.
In Anaheim, they will appear on Hollywood Boulevard at Disney California Adventure while in Orlando, you’ll find them in the Move it! Shake it! Dance & Play it! street party at the Magic Kingdom. That sounds like fun, but it can be hard to take a photo with characters during the street party, so I hope they’ll find a meet and greet location for them at Disney’s Animal Kingdom somewhere (Discovery Island has a few good locations).
Both Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde in park have great designs representing their iconic looks from the film. Zootopia opens March 4th. Disney says the characters will appear later in the spring.
