Real Life, Meet Digital
This is Ivan. He is a 400lb silverback gorilla that happens to live in a communal habitat in a suburban shopping mall with Stella the elephant, Bob the dog, and various other animals. How he got there, what he does, and his own goals are all revealed in the 2:30 trailer we get down below!
We can imagine this movie will hit home with all the misfits. A hodgepodge of animal friends dreaming of freedom. Being the only silverback can feel like you’re standing out, when maybe it’s what makes you fit perfectly. Everyone wants to find a place to belong and to know where they came from, sometimes they’re the same thing. It’s only natural, and who doesn’t love a heartwarming fight for the good fight?
Tons of laughs, silly jokes, and wonderful storytelling await you. Disney is magic for a reason after all. Capture the wild in you and discover yourself through the eyes of The One and Only Ivan.
