Hit family movie Dolittle is one of the highlights on Sky Cinema this Christmas.
Robert Downey Jr. takes on the magical role of the man who can grunt and squeak and squawk with the animals in this retelling of the classic tale. After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr.John Dolittle, 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.
You’ll be able to enjoy Doolittle on demand via SKY and NOW TV from Friday 4 December, 2020.
