Disney Animation Studios has been an experiencing a resurgence for the past several years, and while that’s largely in part to good stories and characters, they may have a lucky charm in Alan Tudyk. The actor has been lending his voice to play bad guys for their last three movies, Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, and Big Hero 6, and all of those movies have been huge hit.
We don’t know if he’ll continue to play red herrings or primary villains, but it’s good to know that the talented actor will be contributing to the studio’s upcoming features.
For those who are unfamiliar with Zootopia, here’s the synopsis:

And here’s the synopsis for Moana:
