Last month, when I met with the filmmakers behind Walt Disney Animation Studios’ ZOOTOPIA, one thing we spoke about that didn’t make my formal feature was the music of SHAKIRA. “For the role of Gazelle, Zootopia’s most beloved superstar, there was only one person on our wish list: Shakira,” said Director Byron Howard. “Luckily for us, she said yes. Her immense talent and charm bring Gazelle and her song, ‘Try Everything,’ to life.” Today, SHAKIRA’s “Try Everything” is available as a digital single ahead of the March 4th release of both the film, and it’s original soundtrack. Check out an introduction by SHAKIRA below!
“Try Everything” was written for ZOOTOPIA by singer-songwriter Sia and songwriting duo Stargate.
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.
