In Disney’s newest addition to the animated lineup, it has been confirmed that Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman will voice roles in the film ‘Zootopia.’ The film is set to open in theaters on March 4, 2016.
Ginnifer has been cast as ‘an optimistic bunny named Judy Hopps.’ Judy is a new bunny that joins the town’s police department. As for Jason, he joins as ‘the scamming fox, Nick Wilde.’
Director Byron Howard said, “We knew that ‘Zootopia’ would only succeed if we found the perfect actors to play our main characters.” In addition, “This rabbit- and fox-duo are in practically every scene in the film together. After meeting Ginnifer, we knew she embodied Hopps, the ultimate pure-of-heart, idealist bunny. You fall in love with her character instantly. And for Nick Wilde, our cynical con-artist fox, we only ever had one actor in mind, the incomparable Jason Bateman. Jason has a way of saying the most hilarious sarcastic things while always staying completely charming. We feel so fortunate to be working with both of them.”
