Shakira previews "Try Everything" from 'Zootopia'

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (2 votes)

Pop star Shakira has put up a 30 second preview of "Try Everything," a song she is singing in character as Gazelle, a, well, gazelle pop star from the furry world of Zootopia (or Zootropolis to our non-American friends), Disney's forthcoming animated feature due March 4.

An ongoing New Years celebration (which of course is called "Zoo Year's Eve") will culminate with a new trailer (which is referred to as a "gnu" trailer, obviously) being released soon. The last trailer wasn't received particularly well by furries at first, but was met with near universal approval from non-furries when played in front of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Update 1/5/16: Sorry, folks, preview's over. Have a placeholder image for now.

Shakira to play a sexy pop star gazelle in 'Zootopia'

GazellePop star Shakira revealed via Twitter that she would be playing the character of Gazelle, the world of "Zootopia's biggest pop star." Apparently, Gazelle is a ... gazelle (perhaps Shakira is a chinkara?). The pop star also revealed she would be performing a song, "Try Everything," for the movie.

The announcements were part of Disney's D23 expo, which was held to promote Disney's many upcoming movies. Footage from Zootopia was shown; it is actually the first footage of the movie shown (the previously released teaser trailer featured a unique scene). The footage shown featured duel protagonist fox Nick Wilde's and rabbit Judy Hopps' actual first meeting (involving a young fox in an elephant suit) and a scene at a sloth run DMV. Aquatic mustelid fans will also be pleased to note that the previously revealed "missing mammal" case that is the basis of the plot is actually a missing otter.
