John Cena isn't a stranger to animation, but this time around he's got the starring role in 20th Century FOX's Ferdinand, and the brand new trailer is here.
As you can see in the trailer, Cena's Ferdinand is a lovable and charming Bull who has been domesticated for most of his life (via JoBlo). He's not a fan of violence in any fashion, as evidenced by the acrobatics he performs to avoid hitting a terrified bunny.
Thanks to an unfortunate event in the market he finds himself dragged into the world of Bullfighting, and along with several other animals has to find a way to get back home. The good news is this crew of hilarious characters will make that happen in the most entertaining way.
The film packs a talented cast, including Kate McKinnon as Lupe, David Tennant as Angus, and Anthony Anderson as Bones. Cena and McKinnon have worked together previously, back when Cena hosted SNL, and Cena's comedic resume includes delightful appearances in Trainwreck and Sisters. He will also star in SNL alum Andy Samberg's HBO
You can view the official description for the film below, and the trailer is located in the video above. You can also view the film's poster in the gallery.
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.
