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.
Blue Sky Studios' second film to be nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature, the first was The Peanuts Movie (2015).
Some people are pigs. Ooh, a sardine can!
Lupe: That has turned.
Ferdinand is named Ferdinand from birth, when he is being raised at the bull camp. He then runs away and is adopted by a new family, but how does this new family know that is name is Ferdinand? He was not wearing any identification tags, and he clearly couldn't speak to the humans to tell them this.
In a brief mid-credits scene, the hedgehogs are confronted by Tres who is revealed to have been alive the whole time.
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.
