First Trailers For Ferdinand Show A Lovable Bull With A Big Heart

30 March 2017 6:07 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Meet Ferdinand. He’s the most kind and gentle bull you’ll ever meet.

From the brilliant mind of Brazilian director Carlos Saldanha (Rio, Ice Age), Ferdinand is based off a lovable children’s book by Munro Leaf.

The film is about a bull, with a big heart, is mistaken for a ferocious dangerous beast. He is captured and taken away as he is very determined to return to his beloved family.

The all-star voice cast will include John Cena, Kate McKinnon, David Tennant, Gina Rodriguez, Bobby Cannavale and Anthony Anderson.

I’m looking forward to Ferdinand since it is based off a popular children’s story. Not to mention Saldanha has brilliantly led animation with Blue Sky Studios outside the well-known properties of Disney, Pixar or even Dreamworks. With Ice Age and Rio under his belt, this may launch a third successful animated property for this.

Ferdinand will be charging into theaters on Dec. »

Ferdinand Trailer Stars John Cena as a Big, Happy Bull

Blue Sky Studios and 20th Century Fox have debuted the first trailer for Ferdinand, directed by Carlos Saldanha (Rio) and starring the voice of John Cena! This animated adventure is based on the classic 1936 children's tale The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf, with illustrations by Robert Lawson. The studio has also released the full poster, along with new photos that showcase the voice cast members alongside their animated characters.

Ferdinand tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart. Ferdinand, a little bull, prefers sitting quietly under a cork tree just smelling the flowers versus jumping around, snorting, and butting heads with other bulls. As Ferdinand grows big and strong, his temperament remains mellow, but one day five men come to choose the "biggest, fastest, roughest bull" for the bullfights in Madrid and Ferdinand is mistakenly chosen. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. »
