WATCH: John Cena Stars As A Bull In 'Ferdinand' Trailer & We Can't Help But Laugh

John Cena is The Man, it’s that simple. He’s the most charismatic and entertaining wrestler since a certain stone-named figure who is currently the reigning king of Hollywood. As such, we’ll give every movie Cena is in at least a modicum of interest. Thankfully, his latest silver-screen effort looks solid.
Ferdinand is based on the classic children’s storybook – first published in 1936 – that follows a gentle bull who “would rather sit in the shade of his favorite cork tree and smell the flowers,” according to the book’s back cover. At first glance, any animated movie not belonging to the Pixar/Disney family is questionable. But Blue Sky Studios pumped out Ice Age and Rio, so they’ve earned the benefit of the doubt for this new fish-out-water animated adventure.
Check out the trailer below.

Cena isn’t along in Ferdinand, of course. He’ll be joined by Saturday Night Live‘s Kate Mckinnon, who will be voicing a loopy sidekick named Lupe. The cast also includes Gina Rodriquez, Gabriel Iglesias, Bobby Cannavale, David Tennant, and Anthony Anderson.
Cena’s biggest movie role to date was his hilarious turn in Amy Schumer‘s Trainwreck. That role alone earned him serious comedic points in our book.
Ferdinand is the perfect date movie to take you girlfriend to after finals. It will be fun, sweet, and worth a few laughs. Maybe plan a nice dinner beforehand too and make a whole date night out of it.
Ferdinand will arrive in theaters on December 15, 2017.
