Ferdinand tells the tale of a giant bull who prefers flowers and friendliness to fighting. A story about choosing to be kind to one another, not judging a bull by its cover and to bull-ieve in yourself. I am excited to be partnering with Fox Home Entertainment on this sponsored craft post. As always, all opinions are my own.

“Random acts of kindness is important because it changes the mood or reinforces good mood.” John Cena, the voice of Ferdinand. Last year, I had the privilege of interviewing John Cena about Ferdinand. He is the perfect choice for Ferdinand because he is a big guy and a wrestler, but is a sweetheart in person. He exudes positivity. John Cena said that he loves the powerful story. He said, “It’s a famous tale about, there’s more than meets the eye.  You don’t judge a book by its cover.” Read the entire Interview with John Cena here.

From the creators of Ice Age and Rio comes the most love-a-bull family comedy of the year! Ferdinand (John Cena) is a giant bull with a big heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast and torn from his home, he rallies a misfit team of friends for the ultimate adventure to return to his family. Based on the classic children’s book, Ferdinand proves you can’t judge a bull by its cover!

Movie fans can add FERDINAND to their digital collection on Movies Anywhere beginning Feb. 27th; and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD March 13.
