...Just two hundred and eleven miles away stands the great city of Zootopia, where our ancestors first joined together in peace and declared that anyone can be anything!
―Young Judy Hopps

Zootopia is a modern city populated by mammals from all over the world. It is also where mammals first came together in peace. It is the main setting of the film of the same name.


All mammals roam freely in this part of the world. Downtown is Savanna Central for Zootopia, and the Zootopia Police Department in this district. There are many other districts such as the Rainforest District, Tundratown, and Sahara Square, as they have many different types of animals to support. The prey-to-predator population ratio is 9:1, with predators being the minority. It is unknown whether that there are different types of cities that different types of animal species lives there.



We used natural shapes and animal patterns throughout Zootopia, like giraffe spots on a building. If you look closely, you'll see lots of animal faces and teeth, multiple horn and tail shapes.
Matthias Lechner

Savanna Central is inspired by many real life cities, including New York City, Shanghai, Barcelona, and London. It incorporates architectural designs from both cities, the most dominant being Times Square.

Role in the Film

The city of Zootopia is seen the most when Judy Hopps arrives there. Judy, on board the Zootopia Express, marvels at the sights of Sahara Square, Tundratown, and the Rainforest District before entering Zootopia Central Station. There, Judy admires the beautiful and complex structures and buildings in the heart of Savanna Central.
