Disney Releases Trailer For ‘The One and Only Ivan’ Ahead of It’s Release on Disney+


Disney has just released the trailer for it’s new film “The One and Only Ivan,” releasing on Disney+ on August 14th.

The film is based on a book by  Katherine Applegate. It’s the story of a silverback gorilla and his friends, who live in a shopping mall as a tiny zoo. Of course they want to be free.

You can check out the trailer below:

Here’s the write up:

An adaptation of the award-winning book about one very special gorilla, Disney’s “The One and Only Ivan” is an unforgettable tale about the beauty of friendship, the power of visualization and the significance of the place one calls home. Ivan is a 400-pound silverback gorilla who shares a communal habitat in a suburban shopping mall with Stella the elephant, Bob the dog, and various other animals. He has few memories of the jungle where he was captured, but when a baby elephant named Ruby arrives, it touches something deep within him. Ruby is recently separated from her family in the wild, which causes him to question his life, where he comes from and where he ultimately wants to be. The heartwarming adventure, which comes to the screen in an impressive hybrid of live-action and CGI, is based on Katherine Applegate’s bestselling book, which won numerous awards upon its publication in 2013, including the Newbery Medal.

The film stars Bryan Cranston as Mack and Sam Rockwell is Ivan the gorilla. Other actors include; Angelina Jolie as Stella the elephant, Danny DeVito as Bob the dog, Helen Mirren as Snickers the poodle, Brooklynn Prince as Ruby the baby elephant, Chaka Khan as Henrietta the chicken, Mike White as Frankie the seal, Ron Funches as Murphy the rabbit, and Phillipa Soo as Thelma the parrot.

It reminds me of a cross between Zookeeper with Kevin James and Madagascar.

The film will be hitting Disney+ on August 14th.
