  1. Judy Hopps was originally going to be a cynical, no-nonsense, aggressive and seasoned police officer, but the screening for the film's development was felt to be dark and unpleasant. As a result, the story was revamped by Byron Howard and the rest of the production team, and they changed Judy's personality to an optimistic and starry-eyed rookie.

  2. This is the second film by Walt Disney Animation Studios to be grossed over 1 billion to the gross revenue, the first is Frozen (2013).

  3. The only types of Mammals not featured in Zootopia are Primates, due to their looking "Too Human"; Bats, since they would've been the only residents with the ability to fly, along with Flying Squirrels; and Marine Mammals like Seals and Dolphins, since it would've been odd to feature animals that can't move on land, beside the fact that they'd have been the only residents with fins. There is however a fish market, where presumably animals can buy them as a food source. Disney has done this before with their litany of talking animals who end up having a pet such as a dog.

  4. The coin of city Zootopia is the letter Z with two lines (like $)

  5. Seth Rogen, Chris Pratt, Jon Hamm, Bruce Willis, Matt Damon and Paul Rudd were all considered for the role of Nick Wilde.
