Disney Accused Of Stealing Zootopia From Veteran Screenwriter! Read The Savage Lawsuit!

Someone call Officer Hopps, because Disney just got hit with a wild case.

Walt Disney Animation Studios is facing a big time lawsuit claiming that the Oscar-winning film Zootopia was ripped off from a noted screenwriter!

In the complaint filed on Tuesday, Total Recall writer Gary Goldman claims the Mouse House jacked character designs, themes, bits of dialogue, and even the name "Zootopia" from a project he started developing way back in 2000.

Goldman says he registered a treatment for a live action film called Looney at that time, which was to be first installment in a Zootopia franchise that would also include an animated "Zootopia."

The writer alleges that he pitched the project to Disney executives twice — in 2000 and 2009 — and was rejected.

But the complaint goes further, alleging Zootopia is the only the latest example of the entertainment titan's long history of stealing movie ideas from others — including The Lion King, Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Up!, Inside Out to name a few.

The suit, which accuses Disney of breach of implied contract, breach of confidence and unfair competition, states:

Let Paris Jackson Explain How Zac Efron Broke Her Heart At Her First Concert!

Paris Jackson is no stranger to disappointment.

The 18-year-old's first Tonight Show interview got a bit too real when she revealed her first concert was also the first time she was really "heartbroken."

On Monday's show, Michael Jackson's daughter admitted to being a big High School Musical fan, noting that High School Musical Live was "first concert that I actively wanted to see."

But the live event ended up being quite "depressing" for Paris, because the film's leading man Zac Efron was missing from the show. Yeah, we'd be pretty heartbroken too…

As the Star actress recalled, Efron was too busy filming "the movie with the horses" — a.k.a. The Derby Stallion, an actual movie that exists — to make the concert. His replacement was Drew Seeley, Zac's singing voice in the first Disney Channel movie, and notably NOT the real Troy Bolton.

Thankfully, Jimmy Fallon cheered Paris up after the emotional walk down memory lane with an INTENSE game of Egg Russian Roulette — in which the blonde beauty couldn't help but lick the raw yolk running down her face. Yum?

She's really getting the hang of this whole "celebrity" thing! Ch-ch-check out both clips (below)!

Think of what you've always wanted. Find it in your mind's eye.

Was it a record-breaking opening weekend at the box office? Good, cuz you got it!

Disney is looking to make it another year north of a billion at the box office with HUGE preliminary numbers for their live action Beauty And The Beast.

Not that we ever doubted the endeavor — the original may be the most beloved animated film of all time — but even industry predictors are floored by the numbers.

With tracking currently over $60 mil for Friday (including $16.5 mil in Thursday preview screenings), the Emma Watson-led retelling is looking at somewhere between $165 and $170 MILLION for the weekend!

Last year's Batman v Superman currently holds the record for March with $166 mil, so breaking that could be a real possibility!

Are YOU going to see Beauty And The Beast this weekend??
