Disney is heading back to Zootropolis.

In 2016, the entertainment company released its massive hit Zootopia which went on to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

The film, about a rabbit police officer and fox con artist teaming up to solve a conspiracy, earned over $1 billion at the global box office.

Its worldwide success has now led to the prospect of not one, but two sequels in the works.

“I can tell you for sure I’m doing another Zootopia with Disney,” said the voice of Finnick, Tommy Lister, at a recent fan meet and greet. “We’re doing three of them… We’re the biggest film that Disney is producing. The last one was $240 million. This one I’m hearing will be $300 million. That’s what they spent on the budget, not the advertising.”

Directors Bryon Howard and Rich Moore are expected to return, as is the cast of Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, and Idris Elba, amongst others.
