Ivan is a 400-pound silverback gorilla who shares a communal habitat in a suburban shopping mall with Stella the elephant, Bob the dog, and various other animals. He has few memories of the jungle where he was captured, but when a baby elephant named Ruby arrives, it touches something deep within him. Ruby is recently separated from her family in the wild, which causes him to question his life, where he comes from and where he ultimately wants to be.
Directed by Thea Sharrock, The One and Only Ivan stars the voices of Sam Rockwell, Angelina Jolie, Danny DeVito, Helen Mirren, Brooklynn Prince, Ramon Rodriquez, Ariana Greenblatt, Chaka Khan, Mike White, Ron Funches, Phillipa Soo and Bryan Cranston. The film will premiere on Disney+ on August 14th in the UK and Ireland.
