WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Ferdinand (Cena) is a giant bull with a big heart, who would much rather smell flowers than chase after red flags held by matadors in events. However, when he is mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is suddenly taken away from his home and placed in a fighting arena, where he meets a misfit bunch of animals who help him out on an incredible journey back home…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

The classic children’s story about a friendly bull is adapted for the big screen in this bright and colourful animated adventure with plenty of heart to offer.
