The first trailer for Blue Sky Studios’ upcoming animated film, Ferdinand, has debuted.
Based on a book by Munro Leaf, Ferdinand is about a bull who would rather spend time sniffing flowers than fighting in a bullring. I’m honestly not pleased with what we’ve seen so far though. I feel the timelessness of the book is lost in this upcoming film. Not to mention: John Cena is the voice of Ferdinand? Really?
It’s sad that I’m more looking forward to the Captain Underpants movie than this film. Ferdinand is set to hit cinemas on December 15, 2017. What do you think of this trailer? Are you interested in the movie?

When we first got the news that Blue Sky Studios was going to tackle a theatrical film adaptation of Charles Schulz’s Peanuts, we were quite frightened and protective indeed! When we heard it was going to be a CG film, that didn’t help matters much either! Finally, after months of waiting, the movie was released and generally, people liked it! It was critically acclaimed and got overall positive reviews! But, what do I think of it? Read on to find out.
