Disney’s Zootopia is available on Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD today! Zootopia is one of my favorite family movies in a LONG time, and I’m so excited to share a little sneak peek into the Zootopia Blu-ray bonus features and content.
And even better? I am giving away a digital copy of Zootopia to one of YOU! This post is written in conjunction with the Zootopia Blu-ray press event that I attended in LA last month. Travel and accommodations were covered by Disney but all thoughts are my own. Affiliate links are used in this post.

If you haven’t noticed already from my previous gushing posts….I LOVED Zootopia! If you haven’t had a chance to see Zootopia yet, take a minute and hop over to my Zootopia movie review post, which by the way, includes some really FUN printable activity sheets for the kids.
I’m thrilled that Zootopia is finally out on Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD. As much as I loved the movie when I saw it in theaters, I’m even more excited to have it at home now. We watched Zootopia on our way to Pennsylvania about a week ago (or should I say, the kids watched and I listened) and we each fell in love all over again.
While I was in LA, I was able to meet with the talented people behind the making of Zootopia and hear their personal accounts of what went in to creating the story and the characters. I was excited to delve into the bonus features to share those same behind-the-scenes looks with my family.
Zootopia Bonus Features
Here’s what you’ll find on the Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD combo:
Zoology: The Roundtables – Ginnifer Goodwin hosts an in-depth look at the movie’s characters, animation, environments and more. The artists at Disney Animation give a rare and in-depth look at the complexities of bringing an all-animal world to life from the ground-breaking technology behind the characters’ fur and clothing to the varied and vast environments of Tundratown, Sahara Square and the Rainforest District as well as the deep thought and research given to bringing 64 unique animal species to life through animation.
The Origin of an Animal Tale – Follow the story’s development from its origins to a big story shift that turned the film upside down. In this feature-length documentary, filmmakers give a candid look into the difficulties of creating the story of Zootopia and the bold decision to switch the main character late in the production process, putting one resolute rabbit center stage.
Research: A True-Life Adventure – The filmmakers traveled the globe to find inspiration for the diverse characters and amazing city of Zootopia. They reflect on the importance of research and how a deep dive into animal behavior at Disney Animal Kingdom theme park and a deep immersion into animal society on the African savanna shaped and inspired the characters of Zootopia and changed the filmmakers’ lives forever.
Z.P.D. Forensic Files – Find the movie’s hidden Easter Eggs. Every city has its hidden gems, especially when it has been created by the filmmakers of Disney Animation who love nothing more than sprinkling hidden references to some of Disney’s greatest animated features throughout the story.
Scoretopia – Academy Award-winning composer, Michael Giacchino spotlights five of cinema’s greatest percussionists and how they brought an organic, animalistic sound to his powerful and emotional music score.
Deleted Characters – Directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore introduce citizens of Zootopia who did not make the final cut.
- Alternate Opening – Young Judy Hopps rescues a fellow classmate and realizes she can reach beyond a life in carrot farming to a future in law enforcement.
- Wild Times! Pitch – Nick desperately pitches the bankers of Zootopia on funding Wild Times!, an amusement park made exclusively for the predators of Zootopia and a sure-fire, money-making scheme for Nick and his friends.
- Alternate Homesick Hopps – After a frustrating first day on the force, Judy has a conversation with her parents. See how this scene changed from a heartfelt conversation with her parents to tough love when her parents discover their daughter is only a meter maid and not a “real cop.”
- Detective Work – Judy borrows a fellow police officer’s computer to conduct research, which turns out to be no small task.
Alternate Jumbo Pop – In this early version of the story where Nick was the main character, the filmmakers and Jason Bateman were able to take hustling to a new level.
Hopps’ Apartment – When Judy’s entire family pays her a surprise visit they are shocked to discover the company she’s keeping.
- The Taming Party – In this emotional clip from an early version of “Zootopia,” Judy attends her first “taming party” and gains a deeper understanding of the plight of the predator.
