Award-winning hip-hop star Future recently hosted a preview of the upcoming animated film, “Ferdinand.” The advanced screening took place at the Regal Atlantic Station and was presented by FreeWishes Foundation.
“Ferdinand” is a young bull who escapes from a training camp in rural Spain after his father never returns from a showdown with a matador. Adopted by a girl who lives on a farm, Ferdinand’s peaceful existence comes crashing down when the authorities return him to his former captors. With help from a wisecracking goat and three hedgehogs, the giant but gentle bovine must find a way to break free before he squares off against El Primero, the famous bullfighter who never loses. The film features the voices of Anthony Anderson, Gina Rodriguez, John Cena, Kate McKinnon, Daveed Diggs and Boris Kodjoe.
Atlanta notables in attendance included Arin Jackson, DJ Fadelf, Egypt Sherrod, Andrea Hamilton and more. ‘Ferdinand” has also been nominated for two Golden Globe Awards for Best Motion Picture – Animated and Best Original Song – Motion Picture. #WHOOHOO
