Netflix boasts a particularly impressive range of movies and TV shows, including originals and blockbusters from popular studios. Netfix's big exclusivity deal for Disney's latest movies took effect in September 2016. That is to say, Netflix became the only licensed place to stream Disney and its subsidiaries' titles released theatrically in 2016 and beyond, such as Zootopia.
Zootopia is one of the best animated movies, winning Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film and grossing nearly $1.024 billion worldwide. Zootopia was released on USA cinemas on March 4, 2016. Well, when is Zootopia on Netflix? Zootopia was released on Netflix at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time on Tuesday, September 20, 2016. So since then, you're allowed to watch Zootopia on Netflix.

In case you're new to Netflix, we'll show you how to watch Zootopia on Netflix from your computer, smartphone, tablet, or TV in the following part.

But the bad news is that Zootopia was taken off Netflix on March 20, 2018. The web page of Zootopia was also deleted from Netflix. So we can't stream this Disney hit from Netflix any more. Why did Zootopia leave Netflix? In which ways can you still watch Zootopia?
Every month there're new movies coming to Netflix and also titles leaving Netflix. But there're other reasons for Zootopia's disappearance.
As we mentioned above, Netflix reached an agreement with Disney over Disney titles released in 2016 and later. However, this deal is expected to end in 2019, because Disney plans to set up its own streaming service. As a consequent, all Disney movies currently on Netflix are scheduled to leave. Zootopia and The Finest Hours as the first titles added to Netflix are the first to say goodbye to Netflix. Other titles will follow. So take the time to watch your favorite Disney titles on Netflix before it's too late.
Before the release of Disney streaming service, we can watch Zootopia through the ways below.
1. Buy/rent Zootopia digital movie from Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, etc.
2. Buy/rent Zootopia DVD/Blu-ray from Netflix, Walmart, Amazon, Redbox, Best Buy, Target, etc.

Through that way you can not only protect your disc from being damaged during regular use, but also play it on mobiles and other devices without DVD drive required. We'll show you how to implement Zootopia DVD to digital below in case you need it.
