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.
Opened to only $13.3 million, the lowest figure for a Blue Sky Studios film, partly due to opening alongside Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017), besting the $21.3 million opening for Ice Age: Collision Course (2016), the franchise's lowest grossing film.
Ah, it's about time we meet again.
Cuatro: Oh... We-We though you w-were d-d-d- OH!
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.
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.
