Disney has announced that it will be bringing the Blue Sky Studios animated movie, Ferdinand, to Disney+ in the United States on Friday 8th January 2021.

Ferdinand (played by WWE’s John Cena) is a young bull who escapes from a training camp in rural Spain after his father never returns from a showdown with a matador. Adopted by a girl who lives on a farm, Ferdinand’s peaceful existence comes crashing down when the authorities return him to his former captors. With help from a wisecracking goat and three hedgehogs, the giant but gentle bovine must find a way to break free before he squares off against El Primero, the famous bullfighter who never loses.

The film was released in 2017 and was nominated for “Best Animated” movie at the Oscars in 2018.

Check out the trailer below:

    Could HBO take this movie and put it onto Max?

      Not really. That film was part of the 2012 20th Century Fox Deal they had with HBO and with the film leaving HBO since early 2020 I don't think it's going to return back to the service.
