HANGHAI, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) — The world’s first Zootopia land, scheduled to open to the public starting from Dec. 20 at Shanghai Disney Resort, has kicked off trial operation, the resort said Wednesday.

The new themed land was open to the media for the first time on Wednesday. It is based on the Walt Disney Animation Studios movie “Zootopia” and will become the eighth themed land in Shanghai Disneyland.
