Mammalian magic is headed to Shanghai Disneyland.

Shanghai Disney Resort has announced that it is adding a new land inspired by the 2016 animated film "Zootopia." As other areas in the park do, the forthcoming attraction will offer themed entertainment, merchandise, food, and beverages. Guests will get to wander through the "mammalian metropolis" and likely catch glimpses of Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde as they do.

"Zootopia" has proved to be a popular film in China and beyond. The movie earned more than $1.02 billion at the global box office. It was also 2016's second highest-grossing film in China, according to Box Office Mojo data, and it took over as the country's top animated movie ever.

The "Zootopia" expansion will be Shanghai Disneyland's second since the park opened in 2016. The first, "Toy Story" Land, opened on April 26, 2018. The other themed areas include Mickey Avenue, Garden of Imagination, Fantasyland, Treasure Cove, Adventure Isle, and Tomorrowland. Ah, there's so much fun to be had.

Construction on the "Zootopia" expansion is slated to begin before the end of 2019.
