In early Victorian era England, Dr. John Dolittle (Robert Downey Jr.) is a veterinarian who has the ability to communicate with animals. After his wife, Lily (Kasia Smutniak) dies at sea, Dolittle becomes a recluse, tending to only animals and refusing to contact or assist with other humans. One day, a boy named Tommy Stubbins (Harry Collett) accidentally shoots and wounds a squirrel named Kevin (Craig Robinson) and is guided to Dolittle for help by a macaw named Polynesia (Emma Thompson), (Poly for short) (Emma Thompson).
Meanwhile, Queen Victoria (Jessie Buckley) sends a girl named Lady Rose (Carmel Laniado) with a message, ordering Dolittle to come in order to try to cure the queen of a deadly sickness. After being persuaded by Poly that he has to start trying to reconnect with fellow humans, Dolittle finally decides to go. Upon reaching her, he finds that the Queen has been poisoned by a type of nightshade that was added to her tea. To be cured, she must eat a fruit from a far away land.
After Poly, Betsy (Selena Gomez) the giraffe (Selena Gomez) and Tutu (Marion Cotillard) the fox (Marion Cotillard) help Tommy escape from his home, he, Dolittle, and Dolittle's crew of animals, consisting of Poly, Kevin, monkeys Elliot and Elsie, Chee-Chee (Rami Malek) the gorilla (Rami Malek), Yoshi (John Cena) the polar bear (John Cena), Plimpton (Kumail Nanjiani) the ostrich (Kumail Nanjiani), Dab-Dab (Octavia Spencer) the duck (Octavia Spencer) and Mini the sugar glider (Nick A.
