BTS ARMY has shown their indisputable power in countless ways, but most recently, they've started job hunting for the boys too.
With just one tweet, Jared Bush, the co-director and co-writer behind Disney animated film Zootopia, fell in love with BTS' Jimin's dubbing one of the main characters in the film. Sent by @BUSANBOY___TWT, the snippet showcased Jimin's newfound talent in portraying the lively character of the grey bunny named Judy.
Hello @thejaredbush , here is clip of Global Artist PARK JIMIN from Korean Boy-Group @BTS_twt doing voice-over for Zootopia character Judy. He did voice-over in Korean language delivering exact weight Judy's character holds. Hope you see this. Thank you 🙂pic.twitter.com/Umc0LKn32S— JIMIN STAN (𝐀𝐥𝐲¹³) 🦢 지민 트윗입니다 (@BUSANBOY___TWT) July 21, 2020
The clip caught the attention of Bush, who thanked the ARMY for reaching out while expressing that he was impressed by Jimin's performance as Judy. He even initiated a collaboration with Jimin which fans eagerly caught on and tweeted their anticipation for Jimin to star in the next installment of the film.

The full video was originally aired on the most recent episode of variety show Run! BTS, where the members took turns to dub scenes from The Lion King, Toy Story, and Zootopia in Korean.
Watch the impressive performance from the BTS members here:
With Zootopia 2 slated to be released in Spring/Summer 2021, perhaps we would see BTS members will star in Zootopia 3 sometime in the future.
