Disney has been praised numerously for its efforts to put diverse Disney characters into their movies. This time, they have featured .. a Canadian! Well, you might wonder what a Canadian Disney character would be like. I mean, we are pretty darn similar to Americans. Maybe a guy wearing Mounties hat? Drinking maple syrup? Eats poutine? Well, nope. They have decided to go with something more traditional, a moose. Yes, how original. We are basically the same species, so it makes sense. :p
His name is Peter Moosebridge, based on the Canadian news anchor called Peter Mansbridge. Yes, how clever. He is going to be in the new movie Zootopia, about a modern civilized world in which animals live (watch the trailer here). Zootopia is brought to you by the creators of Frozen and Big Hero 6, so it’s a pretty good bet that this movie is going to be awesome. It’s going to star voices of Ginnifer Goodwin (Once Upon a Time), Octavia Spencer (Divergent/I know her as Dr. Evilini), Jason Bateman, Tommy Chong and others.
Are you excited to watch Zootopia?
