The One and Only Ivan

The One and Only Ivan ★★★★½

The One and Only Ivan is a new film on Disney Plus. The cast is great Bryan Cranston, Sam Rockwell, Angelina Jolie, Danny DeVito, Brooklyn Prince and Shaka Chan. I was very excited to see this film mostly for the cast. This film is based on a novel and was worried with Disney Plus hits and misses. I was very surprised with how much I loved this film. Not only is this a great kids film, what surprised me the most was the emotional mature story that followed. It’s message about animal lockup is powerful and the whole movie I was emotionally invested. The voice cast and Bryan Cranston were fantastic. I was tearing up at the end because it felt needed. Only minor issues involve the similar plot lines to other classics and dry humor. If you don’t like this movie you are not a real human being.
