Plot summary

What is Ferdinand movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Ferdinand" movie plot summary.

In Spain, a friendly, non-violent, flower-loving young calf named Ferdinand (Colin H. Murphy) lives on Casa del Toro, a ranch that raises and trains bulls for bullfighting. He is ridiculed by Bones (Anthony Anderson), Guapo (Peyton Manning), and Valiente (Bobby Cannavale) due to his pacifism and interest in flowers. Not willing to be raised as a violent bull that will one day be forced to fight against matadors in the bull ring, Ferdinand runs away from Casa del Toro after his father Raf (Jeremy Sisto) fails to return from a bullfight and his favorite flower is squished by Valiente after his father (Bobby Cannavale) got defeated. He arrives at a peaceful farm run by a florist named Juan (Juanes) and bonds with his daughter Nina (Lily Day), much to his dog Paco's (Jerrod Carmichael) jealousy. Ferdinand lives happily on Juan's farm, where he spends every day smelling the flowers and relaxing in the shade until he grows up into an enormous bull. One day when Ferdinand (John Cena) is all grown up, Ferdinand is left alone when Juan, Nina (Lily Day) 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. Believed to be an aggressive, violent, short-tempered bull, Ferdinand taken back to Casa del Toro, 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 a trio of hedgehogs named Una (Gina Rodriguez), Dos (Daveed Diggs), and Cuatro (Gabriel Iglesias) and Lupe (Kate McKinnon), a goat who wants to coach him in bullfighting. 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 (Hans Flula Borg (Flula Borg), Klaus Boris Kodjoe (Boris Kodjoe), and Greta 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 Una, Dos, and Cuatro. 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.
