After Ferdinand, a bull with a big heart, is 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.
The longest Blue Sky film to date, five to six minutes longer than Rio 2 (2014) and Epic (2013).
Don't just think of it as a fight. Think of it as a dance!
Hans: A bull, dancing? Is this some kind of hilarious joke designed to make me laugh?
Greta: You see, horses, we have the beautifulest legs for the dancing.
Klaus: But bulls have short stubby legs.
Hans: Ja, look at me.
When Ferdinand asks the hedgehogs what happened to Tres, the hedgehogs make the sign of the cross but Una the female hedgehog does it with her left hand. In the Catholic religion, the sign of the cross is always done with the right hand.
During the first half of the closing credits, family photos of Ferdinand alongside Juan, Nina, Paco, Lupe and the rest of bulls are shown.
The UK version is cut for a U certificate, removing a use of "bloody", several scenes of characters being electrocuted, a sequence where Ferdinand and Valiente must evade blades in a meat processing plant, and Ferdinand being slashed during the climax.
