The film follows the famous doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria's England, Dr. John Dolittle, seven years after the death of his wife. Due to this tragedy he becomes a hermit hiding behind the walls of his manor with his menagerie of exotic animals. When the young queen falls ill however, the doctor is forced to embark on an adventure with his animal apprentices in order to find a cure.
Based on the creation of English author Hugh Lofting, Dr. Dolittle had been portrayed in the recent years by Eddie Murphy, putting a modern and very comedic spin on the character. Now it is set in Victorian era with Robert Downey Jr. on the role, and the direction of Academy Award winner Stephen Gaghan. The film also stars Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, Marion Cotillard, Tom Holland, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, and more.
