Funko News: Disney’s Zootopia!

12 Jan

Announced on the Funko website, the upcoming animated movie from Disney, Zootopia, will soon have some vinyl collectibles to get!

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. It’s a melting pot where a wide array of mammals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery. Along the way, she will meet citizens of all stripes, including Nick’s partner Finnick, Flash the Sloth and the fearsome Mr. Big.

The following Pop!’s are coming in February 2016:

The whole Disney Zootopia gang are also coming to Mystery Minis!

Each box holds a character from the movie, including Nick, Judy, Police Chief Bogo, Mayor Lionheart or any of the citizens of Zootopia, like elephants, goats, polar bears, and more!

Which Zootopia Mystery Mini will you get?!
