Angelina Jolie's Movie 'The One & Only Ivan' to Premiere on Disney+ Instead of In Theaters

The upcoming movie The One and Only Ivan will be released exclusively on the streaming service Disney+ instead of in theaters as originally planned!

Angelina Jolie produced the movie and she voices one of the characters in the film, which you’ll be able to watch on August 21.

Here is the synopsis: Ivan (Sam Rockwell) is a 400-pound silverback gorilla who shares a communal habitat in a suburban shopping mall with Stella the elephant (Jolie) and Bob the dog (Danny DeVito). He has few memories of the jungle where he was captured, but when a baby elephant named Ruby (Brooklynn Prince) 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.

Bryan Cranston stars in the film and the movie also features the voices of Helen Mirren and Chaka Khan.

“The world has changed in a heartbeat. People all over the globe have shared important, life changing experiences in ways we have not seen for a century,” said director Thea Sharrock. “In response to this, I am so happy that we can share Katherine Applegate’s delightful and original story, The One and Only Ivan with the world this August on Disney+, bringing some joy through this unique movie of true friendship, inspired by a true story.”

Another movie that was supposed to go to theaters was just released on Disney+ today.
