As per the official logline, after losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr John Dolittle (Downey Jr), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria's England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company.

But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley) falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures.

Apart from Downey Jr, the film's voice cast boasts of names such as Harry Collett, Rami Malek, Octavia Spencer, Kumail Nanjiani, John Cena, Emma Thompson, Marion Cotillard, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, Tom Holland, and Craig Robinson.

The Universal Pictures International film also features Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, Jim Broadbent and Carmen Laniado in live-action roles.

The film is executive produced by Downey Jr, Sarah Bradshaw and Zachary Roth.
