A beloved classic comes to stunning new life at Stars & Stripes New Braunfels with the first family favorite of the new year! From Universal Pictures, it’s Dolittle!
Robert Downey Jr. stars as the veterinarian famous for his ability to speak, squeak, squawk and talk with a menagerie of animals. When Queen Victoria falls ill, the good doctor sets sail with said menagerie to a mythical island in search for a cure. Dolittle is certainly not the first big-screen adaptation of Hugh Lofting’s series of books. Most notably is the 1967 musical where Rex Harrison’s doctor tries to discover a giant sea snail, followed by the 1998 remake where Eddie Murphy’s doctor tries to… be a better husband and father? Not quite as spectacular, but still good.
Like the Eddie Murphy version, Dolittle features a star-studded cast of actors providing the voices for the doctor’s furry and feathery friends. There’s Emma Thompson as Polynesia, a parrot and Dolittle’s most trusted advisor. Octavia Spencer plays Dab-Dab, a duck with a metal leg. There’s John Cena as a polar bear, Ralph Fiennes as a tiger, Kumail Nanjiani as an ostrich, and Downey’s MCU costar Tom Holland as Jip, a dog who wears glasses.
Whether you speak to them, or not, your four-legged friends are welcome at Stars & Stripes New Braunfels! Leash them up and bring them with the whole family to see Dolittle! Click the link below for your tickets!
