Ferdinand is the latest offering from 20th Century Fox’s in-house animation company, Blue Sky Studios, which has been behind hit franchises like Ice Age and Rio as well as acclaimed standalone films like The Peanuts Movie. Based on Munro Leaf’s children’s book The Story of Ferdinand, the movie tells the story of a giant but gentle bull who is mistaken for a dangerous animal and taken from his home, but rallies to return to his family with the help of a team of misfits.

Ferdinand Release Date
After bouncing around several release dates, Ferdinand has finally settled on December 15 — alas, against Star Wars: The Last Jedi — and has released a first trailer. The film stars John Cena as the voice of Ferdinand, while the impressive supporting cast includes Kate McKinnon, Gina Rodriguez, Daveed Diggs, Gabriel Iglesias, Bobby Cannavale, David Tennant, Anthony Anderson, Flula Borg, Sally Phillips, Boris Kodjoe, Jerrod Carmichael, Raul Esparza, Karla Martinez, and Miguel Angel Sylvester.
Peyton Manning will voice Guapo the Bull, and Nick Jonas will provide an original song.
Ferdinand is directed by Carlos Saldanha, who has directed both Rio and Rio 2 and either directed or co-directed the first three Ice Age films. Check out the trailer below.
