Watch: Idris Elba Lends His Voice to Disney's Animated Feature, 'Zootopia,' as Chief Bogo

“Zootopia” is an upcoming 3D computer-animated buddy-comedy-adventure movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios, directed by Byron Howard, Rich Moore, and Jared Bush.

Starring the voices of Ginnifer Goodwin, Idris Elba, Octavia Spencer, Jason Bateman, Tom Lister, Jr. and others, the animated film is set in the fictional mammal metropolis of Zootopia, where a rabbit named Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) enlists herself in the Zootopia Police Department. In order to solve the case of a missing otter, she ends up forming an unlikely partnership with con artist red fox named Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) where they also come across a savage outbreak.

Idris Elba voices a character named Chief Bogo, described as a Cape buffalo who is the chief of the Zootopia Police Department. Octavia Spencer is Mrs. Otterton, a slender North American river otter. And Tom Lister, Jr. is Finnick, a fennec fox.

“Zootopia” is scheduled to be released by Walt Disney Pictures on March 4, 2016.
