Here’s a plot summary: “An adaptation of the award-winning book about one very special gorilla, Disney’s The One and Only Ivan is an unforgettable tale about the beauty of friendship, the power of visualization and the significance of the place one calls home.”

“Ivan (Rockwell) is a 400-pound silverback gorilla who shares a communal habitat in a suburban shopping mall with Stella (Jolie) the elephant, Bob (Danny DeVito) the dog, and various other animals. 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. The heartwarming adventure, which comes to the screen in an impressive hybrid of live-action and CGI, is based on Katherine Applegate’s bestselling book, which won numerous awards upon its publication in 2013, including the Newbery Medal.”

Angelina Jolie recently emerged for the first time in months – find out what she was seen doing.
