Critics and fans have spoken: Zootopia is a smash hit!
The Disney film raked in a $73.7 million opening weekend domestically; a record for a Walt Disney animated feature. It’s also the biggest non-summer animated opening, the ninth-biggest animated debut of all time, and the third-biggest opening ever for a wholly original motion picture. Absolutely insane numbers, folks.
Overseas, Zootopia has actually been playing for three weeks and added another $63.4 million to its haul — that pushed its global total to $232.5 million.
Zootopia centers around a world of animals that have evolved beyond their primal instincts. Mammals live in harmony without the fear of tearing each other to shreds and hunting for sustenance. Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin), an ambitious bunny, is dead-set on making a name for herself in the big city as the world’s first “Bunny Cop”. When she gets wound up with sly fox Nick Wilde (Bateman), the adventure spirals out of control into an epic mystery that spans throughout some of the major boroughs of Zootopia.
