    “Zootopia” deserves all that money and, if it does well in Japan, it will definitely cross the $1 billion mark worldwide. It looks like “Finding Dory” and “Moana” are going to have a hard time topping it.

    Zootopia is slaying! Great movie.

  3. Don't Mind Me Now says:

    So how long before everyone on the Internet turns on this film and starts saying they never liked it?

    But seriously, good job for Zootopia. $1 billion seems out of reach by this point, but here’s hoping they can crack the $900 million mark. This movie deserves a position of honor in the box office records.

      It hasn’t hit Japan yet, it could still make a billion

      • Don't Mind Me Now says:

        That’s actually a good point. Frozen was a huge smash in Japan, and Big Hero 6 also pulled in solid numbers. Clearly Disney Animation has a major following in Japan (one that Pixar does not share, looking at Inside Out’s comparatively mediocre performance and The Good Dinosaur’s failure), and if Zootopia is able to break out in Japan the way it did in China, it’s conceivable (though not guaranteed) that it could crack $1 billion. Regardless, $900 million now seems inevitable.

  4. Perfect for zootopia I like it done $800 million wow hallelujah

    Disney should be proud of this film. I love it as have many others! :)

    When can I expect “Zootopia Land” at Animal Kindom Disney? I’m planning another expensive Disney vacation around 2020 and if I don’t get a hug from Nick I’m going to be VERY DISAPPOINTED!

    Also sequel?

    Make it happen Disney!

      At the moment, you can only wave to them from the parade, unless you go to the West Coast park.
      All the construction at the east coast Studios has been really hard on the new-character meets.

      Which brings up the question: What happens when it outgrosses Frozen? ;)
      Will a lot of rampantly ovextended marketing have to be taken down?

      • Lennon says:

        From what I hear Nick and Judy are VERY POUPLAR so I do hope a meet and greet happens soon! :)

        As for Frozen (and Avatar, not very happy about that one) both are getting lands so if Zootopia doesn’t at this point Disney is very foolish!
        And let’s not even get started on Cars Land! Cars, seriously? Come on Disney! If Avatar gets a spot in Animal Kindom (where it doesn’t belong might I add) Zootopia should get a perment space of honor! I feel that Zoo’s legacy will far outshine Cars, Frozen, and Avatar.

  6. I am happy for my furendly furry friends.
