Watch: Disney's First 'Zootopia' Trailer Stars Jason Bateman as a Sly Fox

"Zootopia" features anthropomorphized talking animals (no humans) living in a utopian modern world complete with clothing and technology. Jason Bateman plays a "sly fox" con man, who is dogged by a "dumb bunny" cop (Ginnifer Goodwin) trying to solve a missing mammal case. In one scene, the diminutive fox insists on buying a giant cone at an elephant ice cream parlor, while in another he takes the bunny to a DMV run by slow-mo sloths. It rings all too true. The movie is playing with "stereotype and bias themes," Disney/Pixar chief John Lasseter said at Cannes, as well as the idea that "natural enemies can work together."
