After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Downey), famed veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, hermits himself behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of animals for company. But when the queen falls gravely ill, he 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. Unlike the 1998 film, Dolittle is set in the Victorian Era. The first Dolittle film (based on the books) was in 1967 and starred Rex Harrison
The film also stars Antonio Banderas and Michael Sheen. The animals in the film are voiced by actors such as Rami Malek, Octavia Spencer, Kumail Nanjiani, John Cena, Marion Cotillard, Selena Gomez, Tom Holland, and Emma Thompson.
