Disney Plus fantasy comedy directed by Thea Sharrock. The story follows Ivan (Sam Rockwell), a gorilla who shares a communal habitat in a suburban shopping mall, owned by Mack (Bryan Cranston), with Stella (Angelina Jolie) the elephant, Bob (Danny DeVito) the dog, and various other animals. Ivan 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 and makes him question his captivity.
