Zeus, Zoos, and Trailers Too

Greetings Hawk-tropicans! This is Giant Hawk speaking, and today, I have quite the variety of animation-related news for you all!

And what better way to start off then a gif of everyone’s favorite Greek god Zeus? ‘Nuff said.

Okay, yeah – that’s pretty cool and all, but what other animations have the Creators thrown at us? Turns out, there’s also currently an ad on Home Island for the upcoming animated film Zootopia, with two games. Thanks to Hyper Gamer for the tip and picture below!

In Catch the Weasel, you are to race Judy to the finish line. You get the Flash Follower prize for winning. And in Save Nick, you control Nick and have to control him to not hit obstacles. You get the Judy Patrol prize, when is an animation of Judy riding her police car.

By the way: This is the first ad to be in the SUI (sound-updated island) format!

We’ve also gotten two new trailer videos for the print version of the Mystery of the Map graphic novel! Check them out:

I don’t know about you guys, but I would suggest preparing your wallets for the graphic novel’s upcoming release on March 1st!

And speaking of upcoming releases (see what I did there), Poptropica’s mysterious new tutorial island seems to be right around the corner, as indicated by this photo of some kids at the Poptropica Headquarters testing it out.

So I assume that these kids are the children of the Creators… lucky kids.

Nonetheless, there is one more thing I should mention. If you visit any pre-sound updated (classic) island,  you’ll find that Poptropica has implemented a new map icon.

Once again, thanks to Brave Dolphin for the picture!

What do you all think of the new map icon? And which are you more excited for – the Mystery of the Map graphic novel or the new tutorial island?

Until next time…

    Poptropica has a new Zootopiz Ad.

    It has two games Catch the Weasel and Save Nick.
    In Catch the Weasel you are to race Judy to the finish line. You get the Flash Follower prize, which is a Flash Follower.
    In Save Nick you control Nick and have to control him to not hit obstacles. You get the Judy Patrol prize, when is a animation of Judy riding her police car.

      Since there are millions of Poptropicans and only a limited number of different names, two people can have the same name. Hyper Gamer isn’t trying to steal your cousin’s name, he just has the same name as your cousin. I bet you at least one other person has your name, Sporty Eel.

      • FairyTale says:

        @Tall Cactus. Yeah!

        @Sporty Eel Besides you never know when the Hyper gamer who posted above might actually turn out to be your cousin! o.o

        (I am just kidding! XD I do know I’m bad at jokes, but I couldn’t stop myself from saying that! XD )

    I think I am more excited for the release of the new tutorial island. I really like the idea of Poptropicans having their own himes, and I don’ t see a point in buying the graphic novel, because I’ve already read it.

      What. WHY MUST I HAVE ALREADY BEAT THOSE….

      Honestly, Steamworks is worth 1000 credits lol

    There is another ad. It’s for Capri Sun. You get a rocket skateboard, which is a animation of you riding a skateboard, and a ball storm power, which is a animation of balls falling down,

  5. Sporty Eel says:

    I told my cousin about it, but he isn’t as worried as I am. He says that I take Poptropica too seriously. But that’s not true at all!

    • Sporty Eel says:

      And by the way, the same name thing is actually a glitch. No two Poptropicans are supposed to have the same name. It is a very rare glitch.

      • SlantedFish says:

        It’s not a glitch for Poptropicans to have the same name. There’s only a limited amount of possible name combinations, so names are bound to repeat (and they have).

What's popping, Poptropicans?
