Zootopia might be a "gleaming city" where prey and predators live in peace and harmony, but that's about to change.

Walt Disney Studios has released the second trailer for its new animated film, and now fans are getting a little more information about the city's new and first-ever rabbit officer, Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin). As the force's newest police officer, Hopps is put on traffic duty, but that's not enough for the motivated bunny that works alongside rhinoceroses, elephants and rams, to name a few.

When animals that are supposed to be nonviolent start to go "savage," it's up to Hopps and Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), a sly-talking fox, to solve a crime he didn't commit.

Set to Shakira's new motivational single, "Try Everything," Hopps and Wilde set out on a crime-tastic adventure that involves a lot of ups and downs. Whether they're dealing with sloths running the DMV or the "most feared crime boss" named Mr. Big (you might guess that he's not literally a big animal), Hopps and Wilde rely on each other to get through it. Sometimes that leads to a few tears.

"You bunnies are so emotional," Wilde notes.

As the city of Zootopia begins to panic about the savage animals, a wise voice over notes, "We may be evolved, but deep down we are still animals."

Zootopia promises to be "like nothing you've seen be-fur"—"Humans never happened!" the teaser trailer informed—and hits theaters March 4, 2016. Will you see Zootopia? Sound off in the comments below.
