What is Dolittle about?

In Victorian era Britain, Dr. John Dolittle (Robert Downey Jr.) is a Welsh veterinarian with the ability to communicate with animals. After his wife, Lily, dies at sea, Dolittle retreats from human society and only tends to animals. A boy, Tommy Stubbins (Harry Collett), accidentally wounds Kevin (Craig Robinson) the squirrel and is guided to Dolittle's help by Polynesia (Emma Thompson), a macaw.
Queen Victoria (Jessie Buckley) summons Dolittle to cure her of a deadly sickness. He refuses until Poly persuades him that he must begin to reconnect with fellow humans. He finds the Queen has been poisoned by kind of nightshade added to her tea. The only cure is the magical fruit of Eden from the faraway land of Lily's birth.
Poly, Betsy (Selena Gomez) the giraffe, and Tutu (Marion Cotillard) the fox help Tommy escape from his home, and he joins Dolittle's crew including Kevin, monkeys Elliot and Elsie, Chee-Chee (Rami Malek) the gorilla, Yoshi (John Cena) the polar bear, Plimpton (Kumail Nanjiani) the ostrich, Dab-Dab (Octavia Spencer) the duck, and Mini the sugar glider. They put to sail for the cure while evading Dolittle's lifelong rival, Dr. Blair Müdfly (Michael Sheen). Dolittle leaves his lurcher Jip (Tom Holland) and a walking stick named Sticks behind to guard the Queen while he's traveling. Dolittle's boat is attacked by Müdfly and they escape by harnessing a whale who pulls the boat to safety.
They continue to Lily's island where, attempting to steal Lily's directions to the fruit tree, Dolittle is apprehended by Lily's father King Rassouli (Antonio Banderas) and is locked in a cage with Barry (Ralph Fiennes), a moody tiger looking for his mother's approval. Just as Dolittle is to be killed, a newly-courageous Chee-Chee incapacitates Barry. Dolittle and Tommy escape but lose Lily's journal to Müdfly and have their ship destroyed. Rassouli loans Dolittle a boat to honour his daughter.
