We have an updated look at the upcoming Zootopia land under construction at Shanghai Disneyland. The photos below come from a really cool 360° view courtesy of 720yun.com.
As you can see in the photos below, Zootopia land has made some impressive progress in the months since it went vertical. Situated between Winnie the Pooh to the west (below), the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train to the south (right), and Pirates of the Caribbean to the east (top, distance), Zootopia land will take guests to the land of Zootopia. Before we talk about the land, let’s check out the construction progress.
As a reminder, Zootopia will become the eighth themed land at the Shanghai Disneyland, and the first-ever Zootopia-themed land at any Disney park worldwide. The expansion announcement comes less than three years after the Grand Opening of the resort, and less than one year after the opening of its first major expansion – Toy Story Land.
As the first-ever themed land of its kind, Zootopia will be unique to Shanghai Disneyland and will feature a new major attraction that seamlessly blends Disney’s storytelling and state-of-the-art technologies in order to bring this fan favorite movie and its characters to life. The new themed land will also invite guests to fully immerse themselves in the mammalian metropolis of Zootopia, “where anyone can be anything,” and come along on an adventure with Judy and Nick, the lead characters from the movie. With a brand-new attraction, entertainment, merchandise, and food and beverage offerings, the new land will provide guests with even more to experience and enjoy at Shanghai Disneyland than ever before.
The development of the world’s first Zootopia-themed land follows on from the huge success of the animated movie across the world, and particularly in China, where it broke box office records to become the country’s No. 1 all-time highest-grossing animated feature film. Characters and stories from the film have strongly resonated with Chinese guests, which has led to the successful performance of Zootopia-themed merchandise, digital interactive games, and more, throughout the Chinese market. Judy and Nick can currently be found greeting guests at Disney parks worldwide, and will soon be joined by other Zootopia friends at their very own land at Shanghai Disney Resort.
The “Zootopia”-themed land coming to Shanghai Disney Resort will feature new entertainment, merchandise and dining options that can only be found in the land along with a new major attraction that blends storytelling and state-of-the-art technology.
