FERDINAND Blu-ray Review
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!

I give the Ferdinand Blu-ray a B.
My first thoughts while watching Ferdinand was this is such a cute movie! I loved all the characters especially Ferdinand, the Bull with the huge heart. I also loved how this film took a somewhat scary animal and made him loveable. Ferdinand didn’t want to fight. He loved flowers and when it came down to it, he never back down to what he believed in. I couldn’t help but not like this film. I wasn’t a huge fan of animated films but they are honestly starting to grow on me.
My favorite part of the film was when Ferdinand met Nina and the friendship/bond that grew between them. It was cool to see Nina’s father measuring her height on the wall and Nina doing the same with Ferdinand. Nina and her father treated Ferdinand like a member of the family.
Catch Ferdinand out on Blu-ray, DVD, & Digital March 13th!
