Product Description

Review

A fantastic companion book to a fantastic movie… The Art of Zootopia is such a treat in the way that it not only revisits the movie's delightfully heartwarming characters and fantastic art, but gives us an engaging look at what went into the making of Zootopia. The book starts with author Jessica Julius describing the movie's original story pitch - a 1960s spy story - and how it evolved over four years into the modern day tale of underdogs, prejudice, and fighting for justice for all. She gives us the scoop on how the characters were developed (balancing a feminine yet tough, naive yet sharp, optimistic yet challenged bunny cop isn't so easy!), shows us amazing "sets" I don't even remember in the fast-moving film, and she lets us in on all kinds of fun details, like the fact that it took eight months to get the various animals' fur just right (color, texture, and direction of fur growth takes more contemplation than I realized). We are also privy to many sketches and scenes that were eventually cut from the film… The Art of Zootopia is both a captivating companion book to the movie, as well as a stand-alone coffee table book that doesn't need any knowledge of the movie to be appreciated."
-Wink Books"If you liked Zootopia and (like me) you love seeing what goes into making a movie, you'll love this book. It's filled with concept art and stories about how the movie came to be: for instance, it started off as a spy caper featuring a bunny spy. There's so much thought that went into the design of everything from buildings to vehicles to clothing, and this book gives you the opportunity to get a closer look at it all. There's a chapter on each of the sections of Zootopia, like Tundratown and Little Rodentia-perfect for poring over those blink-and-you-missed-it details from the film."
-Geek Dad"I had very little expectations one way or the other from it, but wound up enjoying Disney's latest animated feature immensely, which made digging into The Art Of Zootopia even more of a delight. As we've come to expect with these lovely hardcover tomes, it's packed with design and development artwork and insight into the creation of the film."
-A Site Called Fred"

Zootopia is one of the best movies for me this year and it's only March. This companion artbook too is a gem.

This wonderful 160-page hardcover artbook features the concept art for the characters, environments and props that make up the world of Zootopia. If you thought that the city was busy with so many things going on, well, this book will delight you with additional environments and characters that weren't even included in the film.

The artworks are so beautiful. I love character designs and the variety. The artists really nailed the look and in the film, the animation is done so well, so believable. I've so many favourite characters, Judy, Nick, Sloth, Bogo, Clawhauser, Yax, Gazelle and the dancing tigers, and of course Mr Big and many more. LOL.

I can't praise all the artists enough. Some of the highlights to me are drawings from Matthias Lechner, Cory Loftis, David Goetz and even the co-director Bryon Howard is also a fantastic artist.

There are many environment artworks included, some presented with breathtaking details and oh so beautiful lighting. You get to read about the effort and thought that goes into the production and design of everything that's shown on screen. All the boroughs and locations are included, namely Downtown, Rainforest District, Savanna Central, Little Rodentia, Sahara Square, Tundratown and Cliffside. And there are several pages of discarded art for an amusement park and a stadium.

This book is just packed with wonderful art like how Zootopia is filled with so much life. This is definitely one of the best artbooks for this year.

Most highly recommended.

This gorgeous book -- the paper equivalent of a rather self-congratulatory DVD special feature -- is an interesting peek into the science-fictional process of worldbuilding. What would a 21st century city look like if it was designed by and for nonhuman mammals?

As the filmmakers are fond of pointing out, the world of ZOOTOPIA is too large for one feature film. What got left out (besides the birds and reptiles, who apparently live on other continents) are a number of supporting characters, but what I found especially interesting are the early concept and character sketches from a much darker premise than the finished film: one that began with a dystopian vision of the outnumbered predators being forced to wear inhibitor collars, and of both Nick and Judy brandishing guns. (Firearms, of course, are conspicuous in the movie by their absence.)

There's a lot to enjoy in the book, especially when you compare the work-in-progress to the finished buddy/romcom/noir that Disney painstakingly assembled.

I have a couple of these "Art of..." books for various animated movies, and this one is probably my favorite of them all; lots of great pictures, information about the movie, the decision-processes that were made, concepts that were deleted, modified, etc. This is a movie where both the characters and the "scenery" were both very important to the storytelling, so it was nice to see that everything received a lot of attention and coverage. I would recommend this even to people who haven't seen the movie if they like animation.

Lots of impressive development drawings of both the characters and sets of a fun movie reminiscent of old school Disney.

The book itself was great, however I was hoping there would be more art of the Manchas character. He was a main plot point so I expected there to have been more to show for him.
