Disney Zootopia: Friends to the Rescue finds both Judy and Nick in tricky, but different, situations. Judy is excited to tour the fun at the Bunnyburrow County Fair with her Pop Pop, but Dinah has to sneak out of the house to join her! Then, when Pop Pop says no to a hot air balloon ride, Judy still gets her chance in the air when Dinah stumbles into trouble and needs rescuing! It will take both their talents, rabbit and sloth, to ensure that everyone makes it safely home at the end of the day. Meanwhile, Nick learns it’s the thought that counts when he saves the day at his friend Hedy’s birthday party. While he might not have enough money to buy a gift, Nick has other talents that he puts to good use for a truly unforgettable celebration.
Disney Zootopia: Friends to the Rescue goes on sale September 12, 2018, and is available for preorder on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop. This 48-page original graphic novel retails for $7.99.
