The film’s potential future depends on the first part and Zootopia did an awesome job by overcoming the difficult creative hurdle but still a second part is unclear.
Some unofficial reports claimed that the new Zootropolis 2 or second part of Zootopia will come out in 24 Nov 2024. The movie hasn’t released since six years and it can be released on the mentioned date if the project is underway.
The film deserves a sequel after a major success for the first movie due to its awesomeness and humor on social commentary.
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.
