Disney Animation’s ‘Zootopia,’ ‘Moana’ Hitting Theaters in 2016

Fresh off the box office success of “Big Hero 6,” Walt Disney Animation Studios is unveiling the next wave of films it hopes will extend its recent hot streak.

The studio will field its fox-on-the-run film “Zootopia” on March 4, 2016, and and will sail the high seas adventure “Moana” into theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.

In its opening weekend, “Zootopia” will compete against the sequel to “Prometheus” and the Tim Burton fantasy film, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.”

Moana” will square off against the second weekend of the Harry Potter spin-off “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” in what is typically a fiercely competitive Thanksgiving period.

“Zootopia” follows a fox who lives in an animal city and is framed for a crime he didn’t commit, while “Moana” centers on a bold teenage girl as she travels through the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania.

Walt Disney Animation has had a string of critical and commercial successes in recent years, including “Tangled,” “Wreck-It Ralph” and “Frozen.” Its latest, “Big Hero 6,” opened in first place at the box office last weekend with more than $56 million.
