So, anyway, redoing the whole "Furry movie showdown" thing, since seven movies have come around with claims to the throne (and that's just counting American/English language productions/versions; I could probably add quite a few foreign productions). Also, the glitch where I could only post two choices has passed, so that's nice. Note: Spark, Sly Cooper (the current champ, actually) and Rock Dog still don't have solid release dates, so they could become 2017 movies easily (Rock Dog and The Little Prince both started out as planned 2015 releases). Also, notable factoid, since Zootopia's teaser trailer bragged about the "no humans, bipedal stance, wearing clothes" thing, five other movies not counting Zootopia having those qualities will be released in 2016, meaning in 2017, a third of all movies with those three qualities will have been 2016 releases.

Anyway, last week's poll, about what type of news stories are best, was won by "news about the furry fandom", because, well, duh. In hindsight, probably didn't need a poll to see that.

Only a couple of days in, and Zootopia is already such a runaway favorite that it would make sense to declare it the winner and run a new poll without it to see which film comes in second place.

Your rating: None

Actually, seeing as how it lost to Sly Cooper last time (and Sly Cooper was a slow build) ...

... also, I suck at polls too much as it is without having to come up with two a week.

Actually, Cross? I think Mwalimu's idea is very good, for the next time we get around to a poll. I think that Zootopia is a foregone conclusion at this point (not just in this poll, but in Furry Fandom!) and I would be genuinely curious as to what fans' SECOND-most anticipated film is. Put up a new poll that asks that, and just replace Zootopia on the list with Alice: Through the Looking Glass.

Your rating: None

Does Alice Through the Looking Glass not count?

Your rating: None

It's certainly going to be in the running for an Ursa Major Award (again), so I'd say yes, it does.

Cartoon Brew has a list of FORTY SEVEN animated features coming out in 2016 (!), including some anthro ones that I don't think made this list... As they whine about, some of these may never seen distribution in North America, but they're there and we should be able to get a hold of them with a little work.

I was going to say, "What happened to 'The Nut Job 2?", but here it is at the bottom of the list. The Finnish/French "Moomins on the Riviera" is missing; it was released in France and Britain earlier this year, but I guess it doesn't have a U.S. release date yet.

Actually, it was released in the U.S. this year, too; it had a qualifying run for the Oscars this year, at least.

Your rating: None

Technically, maybe, but I don't consider a poorly-advertised release in a single theater for one week to be a "real" U.S. release. Some Indian animated feature (non-anthropomorphic) in Hindi with English subtitles played in a Texas theater for two weeks in 2015, but does anyone consider that a real U.S. release?
