‘ Zootopia ’ Trailer Proves That Sloths Run the DMV

The new trailer for the animated feature “Zootopia” proves that sloths run the DMV.

The trailer, released by Walt Disney Animation Studios on Monday, focuses on Flash (voiced by Raymond Persi) — the “fastest” sloth working at the DMV. Rabbit police officer Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) gets more (or less, technically speaking) than she bargained for when her partner, scam-artist fox Nick Wilde (voiced by Jason Bateman), takes her to the DMV to run a license plate number.

“Zootopia” is set in a civilization led by animals devoid of human interference, complete with habitat neighborhoods like the ritzy Sahara Square and the frigid Tundratown.

The comedy-adventure is directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”). The voice cast includes Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons, Octavia Spencer, Jenny Slate, Shakira and Tommy Chong.

In the trailer for Disney’s Zootopia, audiences are introduced to Officer Judy Hopp (Ginnifer Goodwin), an enthusiastic, bright-eyed bunny eager for her big break. When she volunteers for a major case – with sneaky weasel Duke Weaselton at the heart of the crime – she immediately sets to work. With smart-aleck Nick Wild (Jason Bateman) by her side, Officer Hopp heads to the DMV – otherwise known as the Department of Mammal Vehicles – for some scoop on a license plate she suspects is connected to the felony.

With just 48 hours to solve the case, Officer Hopp needs all the help she can get from the DMV’s best and brightest employees. Unfortunately for her, she gets stuck with Flash (Raymond S. Persi), a character who doesn’t exactly live up to his name but definitely fulfills every scary DMV stereotype, ever.

Directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore, and featuring adorable, animated mammals voiced by Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons, Alan Tudyk, Katie Lowes, Jenny Slate, Octavia Spencer, Bonnie Hunt, Tommy Chong, and Shakira, Zootopia hops into theaters March 4, 2016.
