Zootropolis 2 Speculations
In 2016, film directors were in talks about the possibility of creating a Zootopia sequel but no release date was announced publicly. Howard and Moore told Slashfilm that they are planning for two more films and take it to Zootopia 3.

Some unofficial reports claimed that the new Zootropolis 2 or second Zootopia will come out in 24 Nov 2022 but this a rumor only. The movie hasn’t released since six years and isn’t expected to return anytime but a spinoff TV series.
The film deserves a sequel after a major success for the first movie due to its awesomeness and humor on social commentary but got cancellation.
Why was Zootopia 2 cancelled?
Producers believe that the movie works well as a single film due to its kid-friendly rating that would be affected if a sequel was announced. The voice actors were trying hard to maintain the kids rating without any involvement of bad words and it become harder with another part. So, the idea for releasing a second part was dropped.
