At an event for the grand opening of Zootopia at Shanghai Disneyland, Chairperson of Walt Disney Parks, Experiences & Products Josh D’Amaro introduced audiences to an incredible roaming Duke Weaselton Audio-Animatronic character.
Duke Weaselton Audio-Animatronic for Zootopia Land
Imagineer Dustin Schofield shared a video of the animatronic on Instagram.
In the video, Duke appears from offstage with a cart. He appears to be pushing the cart with his foot like a skateboard.
He pulls up next to D’Amaro and yanks on a cord that lowers a backdrop while also lifting him into the air.
He finds his footing atop the cart and talks with D’Amaro.
