November 28, 2019 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Universal Pictures has unveiled nine new character posters for Robert Downey Jr.’s Doolittle showing off all the animal characters. You can check out the posters below, which feature Downey’s titular character alongside Yoshi the polar bear (voice of John Cena), Tutu the fox (Marion Cotillard) and Betsy the giraffe (Selena Gomez), Polynesia the macaw (Emma Thompson), Plimpton the ostrich (Kumail Nanjiani), Kevin the chipmunk (Craig Robinson), Jip the dog (Tom Holland), Dab-Dab the mallard (Octavia Spencer), and Chee-Chee the gorilla (Rami Malek).

The film opens on January 17th, 2020 and is described as follows:

After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Downey), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley, Wild Rose) falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle 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.

The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice (Dunkirk’s Harry Collett) and a raucous coterie of animal friends, including an anxious gorilla (Oscar-winner Rami Malek), an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck (Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer), a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich (The Big Sick’s Kumail Nanjiani) and an upbeat polar bear (John Cena, Bumblebee) and a headstrong parrot (Oscar-winner Emma Thompson), who serves as Dolittle’s most trusted advisor and confidante.
