Fusion, a channel co-owned by Walt Disney Studios, airs a stunning documentary tonight at 8 pm that’s a must-see for anyone who wants to see how Disney created Zootopia, one of the biggest hits of the year, and Disney’s 3rd biggest animated film of all time (behind Frozen and The Lion King).

Given access over a two-year period, the filmmakers document the way Disney animators researched the film’s animal characters and settings, the struggle of making magic in a warehouse in Burbank (because the famous “Hat Building” was undergoing a remodel), and more.

If you don’t want to wait until tonight, watch the entire film on Fusion’s YouTube channel and be prepared to enjoy yourself thoroughly.  Unlike the horrible waste of time that was “The Making of Frozen” (remember, that silly musical number that explained nothing about the movie that was included on the Blu-Ray), this is a truly great look at the work it takes for the Mouse to make magic.
