On November 9, 2022, Disney’s newest animated series, Zootopia+, will premiere on Disney+. The show is a spinoff of the hit Disney film Zootopia, which was released in 2016 and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. While the movie followed new Zootopia police officer Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) and scam artist Nick Wilde, the new series will tell the stories of some of the minor characters we met in the film, like Flash the Sloth, Fru Fru the arctic shrew, and the backup gazelle dancers.
In celebration of the premiere of Zootopia+, Disney will be releasing an adorable new cheesecake at Walt Disney World Resort, but just for a limited time. Disney Parks shared more details on the new food offering.
