The first Dolittle trailer is finally here. 

Dolittle, which is Robert Downey Jr.’s first project following Marvel retirement, sees Downey’s Dolittle setting sail with some furry friends. 

The reimagining of the classic story about a man who could speak to animals is an adaptation of the 1920s children’s book by Hugh Lofting titled Voyage of Doctor Dolittle.

The film picks up seven years after Dolittle has lost his wife. What ensues is a quest to save the Queen of England — “We have no choice but to embark on this perilous journey,” he says.

Tom Holland, Emma Thompson, Ralph Fiennes, Kumail Nanjiani, Octavia Spencer, John Cena, Rami Malek, Craig Robinson, Marion Cotillard, Frances de la Tour, and Carmen Ejogo voice star in the feature from Universal Pictures. 

Dolittle hits cinemas on January 17, 2020.
