Can I just tell you right now, how much we loved FERDINAND? I’m not just saying that because we were invited to an exclusive screening and after party where we got to meet John Cena, the voice of Ferdinand as well as a real live bull named Ferdinand. No, I mean it. My whole family loved this movie. It was funny and full of heart and that is exactly the kind of movie that makes for a perfect family movie night.
FERDINAND tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure. Set in Spain, Ferdinand proves you can't judge a bull by its cover.
The voice talents in this movie are hilarious! John Cena does a great job as Ferdinand, but I have to say my girls loved Kate Mckinnon's character, Lupe the calming goat. As for me, my favorite part was the relationship between Ferdinand and Nina, the young girl that adopts Ferdinand into her family. There is a ton of heart in this one and if you're anything like me, your eyes might well up a little. The characters and the story are told with Spain and some of the Spanish culture as the backdrop. You may gain some vegetarians after watching this one, and that's okay.
We were lucky enough to be invited to an exclusive after party at the Gentle Barn in Santa Clarita, CA. While here we were treated to some vegetarian food and treats and were able to meet a real live bull that was recently rescued and named Ferdinand. If you're in the LA area, I would definitely recommend a visit to the Gentle Barn, stop by and say Hello to Ferdinand.
