Robert Downey Jr. electrifies one of literature’s most enduring characters in a vivid reimagining of the classic tale of the man who could talk to animals: Dolittle.
After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, Dr. John Dolittle hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company.
When the young Queen Victoria falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dr. Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures.
Directed by Academy Award® winner, Stephen Gaghan, Robert Downey Jr. plays Dr. John Dolittle, and stars alongside Antonio Banderas, Jim Broadbent, and Michael Sheen in the movie’s live action scenes.
A star-studded voice cast gives life to Dr. Dolittle’s raucous coterie of animal friends. There’s Dolittle’s trusted advisor, a headstrong parrot, voiced by Emma Thompson, while John Cena plays an up-beat polar bear. Selena Gomez is Betsy, a friendly giraffe; Tutu the fox is voiced by Marion Cotillard, while Barry the tiger is played by Ralph Fiennes.
