Watch the Trailer for New Animated Film ‘Ferdinand’ Starring John Cena, Anthony Anderson, and Gina Rodriguez

“Never judge a book by its cover” is a lesson many of us have seen in our favorite movies and stories. However, in the new animated film Ferdinand, we will see the same lesson brought to life from an old story turned into an animated film.

Based on the best-selling children’s book The Story of Ferdinand by Munroe Leaf and Robert Lawson, Ferdinand tells the story of a bull who may look rough and tough on the outside but would rather smell the flowers than participate in bullfights. After being mistaken for a vicious beast, he is captured and taken away from his home. Determined to return to his friends and family, he gathers a group of misfits on an adventure. Set in Spain, the film will show you that looks don’t mean a thing.

The animated film from Rio and Ice Age from veteran Carlos Saldanha and Blue Sky Studios, Ferdinand will feature an all-star cast including Black-ish star Anthony Anderson, Jerrod Carmichael from The Carmichael Show, Law & Order SVU‘s Raul Esparza, Sense8’s Miguel Ángel Silvestre, Bobby Cannavale from Master of None, Code Black’s Boris Kodjoe, comedian Gabriel Iglesias, and pro wrestler turned actor John Cena playing the gentle giant Ferdinand.

Ferdinand is set to hit theaters December 15, 2017. Be sure to check out the official trailer and poster below!
