After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Downey), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victorias England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley, Wild Rose) falls gravely ill, a reluctant 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.The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice (Dunkirks Harry Collett) and a raucous coterie of animal friends, including an anxious gorilla (Oscar(R) winner Rami Malek), an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck (Oscar(R) winner Octavia Spencer), a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich (The Big Sicks Kumail Nanjiani) and an upbeat polar bear (John Cena, Bumblebee) and a headstrong parrot (Oscar(R) winner Emma Thompson), who serves as Dolittles most trusted advisor and confidante.
