20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios have unveiled a new trailer for the animated movie, Ferdinand. The film features the voices of John Cena (voicing the title role), 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, Miguel Angel Sylvester, and Juanes. Carlos Saldanha (Rio) directs the family-friendly film set to open in theaters on December 15, 2017.
In addition, Fox announced Nick Jonas has written “Home,” a new song specifically for the movie. Plus, retired NFL Quarterback Peyton Manning is providing the voice of Guapo the Bull. Guapo is described as a bull who “acts like he’s brimming with confidence but under that brash exterior, he’s really a bundle of nerves! Thanks to Ferdinand, he learns to overcome his self-doubt.”
Ferdinand is inspired by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson’s popular book, The Story of Ferdinand.
The Plot: 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.
