– Joe Schott
Shanghai Disney Resort has commenced construction of its second major expansion site since opening in 2016, with the Zootopia-themed land set to be located next to the theme park's Fantasyland attraction.

Based on the Disney movie of the same name, which has achieved extraordinary popularity in China, the Zootopia attraction will include entertainment, merchandise, and food and beverage offerings. Popular characters from the movie, such as Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps, Flash the Sloth, Gazelle, Officer Clawhauser, Chief Bogo and Yax the Yak will feature in the "mammal metropolis".

"We're pleased to announce the start of main construction for the new land today, a significant milestone in its development," said Joe Schott, president and general manager of the Shanghai Disney Resort.

"This expansion demonstrates Shanghai Disney Resort's commitment to bringing new and unique experiences to our guests, offering more reasons for them to come to visit us again and again."

In Q2 2018, Toy Story Land – the park's first major expansion – opened its doors.
