Classic tale of Ferdinand opens January 8 in PH cinemas

A timely tale of amity and acceptance is set to open on January 8 in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

In the tradition of beloved animals from children’s classic tales comes a gentle giant with a heart of gold in “Ferdinand” – starring the voice of wrestling superstar John Cena along with Gina Rodriguez, Kate McKinnon, Bobby Cannavale and Anthony Anderson.

Directed by Carlos Saldanha, who also helmed global blockbuster animation films such as “Rio,” “Ice Age” and “Robots”, “Ferdinand” is a Blue Sky Studios feature that tells the unlikely and delightful story of a bull who prefers flowers to fighting. John Cena stars as the voice of the titular character, a peace-loving animal with no desire to battle matadors, like the rest of the herd, which makes him an outsider. At the ranch where he’s expected to train for the bullring, he meets Lupe, supposedly a calming goat, but in fact she is brash and feisty. The two become fast friends. Action-packed, funny and heartwarming, the film explores resonant themes of authenticity, courage and what home really means. 

Set in Spain, “Ferdinand” relates the journey of a charming, fun-loving bull. A gentle giant whose life changed when he went to a flower festival in the local town, where people mistake him for a vicious beast and took him away from the family that he loves.

“Ferdinand” is based on the book “The Story of Ferdinand” by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson. This classic story has been in publication for over seventy-five years, been translated into more than sixteen languages, and is included on TIME's 100 Best Children's Books of All Time.
