Making its debut on Disney+ on August 14th, the live action/CGI hybrid is based on the book of the same name by Katherine Applegate telling the story of a gorilla named Ivan who tries to piece together his past with the help of an elephant named Stella as they hatch a plan to escape from captivity.


An adaptation of the award-winning book about one very special gorilla, Disney’s THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN is an unforgettable tale about the beauty of friendship, the power of visualization and the significance of the place one calls home. Ivan (voiced by Sam Rockwell) is a 400-pound silverback gorilla who shares a communal habitat in a suburban shopping mall with Stella (Angelina Jolie) the elephant, Bob the dog (voice of Danny Devito), and various other animals. He has few memories of the jungle where he was captured, but when a baby elephant named Ruby (Brooklynn Prince) arrives, it touches something deep within him. Ruby is recently separated from her family in the wild, which causes him to question his life, where he comes from and where he ultimately wants to be.

THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN streams exclusively on Disney+ from August 14.
