I'm Gazelle. Welcome to Zootopia.
―Gazelle

Gazelle is a famous popstar and mammal rights activist in Disney's 2016 animated feature film Zootopia.

Background

Gazelle is very popular in the world of Zootopia, having many fans, which include Judy Hopps, Clawhauser, and surprisingly even the normally gruff and hard to impress Chief Bogo. Her importance and popularity stem from the fact that she is very socially-minded and is all about acceptance and equality for all.[1]

Development

Shakira's involvement with the film begun when the directors met her around 2013. She fell in love with the idea and the central message.[1]

Personality

Gazelle is liked by almost all the citizens of Zootopia given her status as a famous pop star. Despite being a pop idol, Gazelle doesn't see herself as above anyone else, she is humble and kind.

Like Judy, she cares for equality and loves Zootopia because she believes it is a place where animals are equals regardless of whether they are predators or prey, something that she's very passionate about. Her upbeat and accepting nature shows no limits to how far she thinks of others based on species. She even held a peace rally when the conflicts between predator and prey arose, her peaceful nature shows how level-headed she is in unfairness situations such as prejudice. All of her dancers are also shown to be predators, namely tigers, holding true to her values.

Physical appearance

Gazelle, as her name obviously implies, is a gazelle with a slender figure, amber fur with a beige underside going up to her throat and muzzle. She has long, curving dark gray horns and light brown eyes. She has long, wavy locks of blonde hair that go over half her face.

Given her status as a pop idol, Gazelle wears a sparkling red skirt, crop top, and shoes with leggings that are below her knees. Her skirt also has a silver belt around it.

In the Zootopia+ segment "So You Think You Can Prance", Gazelle wears a silver, sleeveless, shimmering mini dress, silver shoes, metallic eye shadow, and her eyes appear gray instead of the original brown.

Appearances

Zootopia

Gazelle is a pop singer/songwriter, choreographer, and was first introduced singing her song "Try Everything", on Judy Hopps' playlist as she is traveling to Zootopia, then at the end, where she was seen as a recording on a jumbo-tron TV introducing herself and saying "Welcome to Zootopia". She is later featured on a phone app where the user can tag their face on a tiger backup dancer performing next to Gazelle, which Clawhauser and Chief Bogo are fans of.

Later on, as fear and discrimination against predators take hold in Zootopia for fear of them going savage, Gazelle holds a peaceful protest and publicly asks for the harmonious Zootopia she loves and cherishes to be restored, with many refusing to join.

During the end credits, Gazelle, flanked by four dancing tigers, holds a concert in the middle of town square for all of Zootopia, including those incarcerated (though they all dance to it except for Bellwether and Lionheart).

Cameos

Gazelle and her tiger dancers appear during the end credits of the Zootopia entry of the As Told by Emoji short series.

Trivia

  • Gazelle is one of the few characters to actually wear shoes.
    • Ironically, her voice actress (famous pop singer, Shakira) doesn't normally like wearing shoes, at least for when she's performing.
  • Gazelle is one of the Zootopia characters to have their names play on their species. The others are Finnick, Flash Slothmore, Mayor Lionheart, Yax, Emmitt Otterton, his wife, Duke Weaselton, Peter Moosebridge, Doug Ramses, and Dr. Badger.
  • Gazelle is currently the only Zootopia character to have the same actor in multiple versions of the movie, as Shakira voiced Gazelle in the English and both Spanish dubs (Latin America and Spain) of the movie.
    • However, there is no official Spanish version of her song "Try Everything", so even in said dubs, the song stays in English.
      • But in Zootopia+, Shakira doesn't reprise her role in the Latin Spanish dub, being replaced by Annie Rojas.
  • The "Dancing With Gazelle" app seen in the film is available on Disney websites.
  • Gazelle is the only gazelle seen in the film.
  • Despite being female, Gazelle has the long horns of a male gazelle (female gazelles in real life have short horns).
  • Rich Moore confirmed that Gazelle is her real name, as opposed to a stage name.[2]
  • She is a model for Preyda and appears on the covers of magazines such as Vanity Fur.
  • In 2020, Gazelle brought back attention as her actress Shakira wore a very similar outfit as her for the Halftime Show of the Super Bowl LIV.[3]
