Based on a series of children’s books written in the early 20th century, this fantastical tale sees Robert Downey Jr. taking on the role of Dr. Dolittle, a veterinarian who, after his wife’s death, decides to live a solitary existence with his beloved animals. After discovering that he has the special ability to talk with these creatures - including an intelligent macaw, an anxious gorilla, an upbeat polar bear and a cynical ostrich – Dolittle is soon approached to undertake a dangerous but important mission that will help save the life of the Queen of England. Along with his trusted animal companions, Dr. Dolittle sets sail across the ocean, encountering swashbuckling pirates, ferocious tigers and old friends. With a star-studded cast, this is a family-friendly tale of discovering your identity and doing the right thing in the face of adversity.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
