The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it's a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn't so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.

Here's Zootopia's full list of characters and cast members:

> Chief Bogo (Idris Elba) - A cape buffalo who is the head of the Zootopia Police Department.
> Mrs. Otterton (Octavia Spencer) - An otter who reaches out to the police to help her find her missing husband.
> Leodore Lionheart (J.K. Simmons) - A lion who is the mayor of Zootopia.
> Assistant Mayor Bellwether (Jenny Slate) - A sheep we don't know much about yet.
> Duke Weaselton (Alan Tudyk) - Described as "a small-time weasel crook with a big-time mouth."
> Yax the Yak (Tommy Chong) - Described as and enlightened and laid-back character.
>Benjamin Clawhauser (Nate Torrence) - A cheetah receptionist at the Zootopia Police Department that enjoys eating donuts.
> Flash (Raymond Persi) - A hilariously slow moving and talking sloth who works at the DMV a.k.a. the Department of Mammal Vehicles.
> Bonnie Hopps (Bonnie Hunt) - Judy's mom
> Stu (Don Lake) - Judy's dad who is a carrot farmer.

Zootopia was helmed by directors Bryn Howard and Rich Moore, with Jared Bush as co-director. The film will be released in theaters on March 4, 2016.
