Ferdinand | Trailer | Fox Family Entertainment.
In Spain, a non-violent, flower-loving, enormous bull named Ferdinand (John Cena) lives in a florist's farm run by the owner Juan (Juanes) and bonds with his daughter Nina (Lily Day), much to his dog Paco's (Jerrod Carmichael) jealousy. One day, Ferdinand is left alone when Juan, Nina and Paco (Jerrod Carmichael) go to Ronda for an annual flower festival. Ferdinand follows anyway, but is stung by a bee on the butt and unintentionally causes chaos around town. He's taken to back Casa del Toro, a ranch that trains bulls for bullfighting, saddening Nina.
Ferdinand reunites with his childhood bullies, Bones (Anthony Anderson), Guapo (Peyton Manning) and Valiente (Bobby Cannavale) and discovers that they're all grown up and are joined by two new bulls named Angus (David Tennant) and Maquina (Tim Nordquist). Still ridiculed by Bones, Guapo, and Valiente, Ferdinand befriends Lupe (Kate McKinnon), a goat who wants to coach him in bullfighting, and a trio of hedgehogs named Una (Gina Rodriguez), Dos (Daveed Diggs), and Cuatro (Gabriel Iglesias). Legendary bullfighter El Primero (Miguel Ángel Silvestre) arrives to choose the biggest, strongest, most aggressive bull to fight before he retires. Failing to impress the matador, the bulls turn on Ferdinand for making them look bad and blocking the entrance to the ring. Guapo is taken to a slaughterhouse, which Valiente and Bones tell Ferdinand will be their fate if they are not chosen for a bullfight. Ferdinand earns the bulls' respect except Valiente after a dance-off with German horses (Flula Borg, Boris Kodjoe, and Sally Phillips), but they still believe fighting is their only way to survive. Ferdinand convinces Lupe to escape with him to Nina's farm, aided by the hedgehogs. Close to freedom, Ferdinand sees his father's horns mounted on a wall with dozens of others, and realizes that every bull chosen to fight is slain by the matador.
