FERDINAND tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure. Set in Spain, Ferdinand proves you can’t judge a bull by its cover.
From Blue Sky Studios and Carlos Saldanha, the director of “Rio” and inspired by the beloved book “The Story of Ferdinand” by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson, FERDINAND is a heartwarming animated comedy adventure with an all-star cast that includes John Cena, Kate McKinnon, Gina Rodriguez, Anthony Anderson and many more.
I was wondering if we should see this movie. It sounds like a perfect weekend afternoon movie. I lvoe the message especially this time of the year.

This looks like such a cute movie. We will probably not see it in the theater, though. We can only afford a few movies out a year, and my daughter and I saw Star a few weeks ago. We will wait for the DVD to come out for this one.

I love the message of following your heart. This sounds like a great time out for you and your kids. I think I will take my niece because it sounds like a movie she would love!

I have never heard of this movie but it sounds like a great one for the kids. I love seeing good family movies because they are hard to come by these days. I think we may look more into this one and possibly check it out.

I know my niece would love this movie! I loved reading your review of Ferdinand and know that it shares a very important message of being your one true self. It's so hard to let your light shine when society tries to dictate what it believes is and should be the norm. A great movie to see this coming weekend!
Ohh, I love to see movies like this. Thanks for recommending this. I hope to watch this too. I guess I need to schedule this for a date with my little cousins.
David Elliott says
I remember watching the Ferdinand cartoon when I was a little kid on the Disney Channel. And then I remember when they had re-released the books here. So when I saw they were doing the movie again, that made me very happy. So glad to hear that it was awesome.

I watched the cartoon as a child and was excited about the new movie. I’d love to take my younger siblings to see it soon. Thanks for the insight!
