We might not have a sequel to Disney's Zootopia just yet, but thanks to Dark Horse we do have a glimpse into the cast during their school years in our preview of Disney Zootopia: Friends to the Rescue.
Friends to the Rescue is a graphic novel for younger readers and features a young Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde as they have fun adventures at the Bunnyburrow county fair and Hedy's birthday party. As you can see in the preview, Hopps' friends are all excited for the county fair for a variety of reasons including carrot flavored funnel cake (which sounds phenomenal by the way) and a hot air balloon ride, but they might miss all of it thanks to their lovable sloth buddy Dinah.
Over in Nick's world, it's all about Hedy's birthday party, but to take part you kind of need to be invited first. Luckily it looks like Nick's invitation was just delayed, and you can check out the entire preview in the gallery.
The full preview for Disney Zootopia: Friends to the Rescue can be found below.
