THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN is now available on Disney+

I’m excited to share that Disney’s The One And Only Ivan is now available on Disney+! This is one of the sweetest movies and perfect for the whole family!  Plus I am sharing some great educational activity pages which you can print for FREE.

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 is a 400-pound silverback gorilla who shares a communal habitat in a suburban shopping mall with Stella the elephant, Bob the dog, and various other animals. He has few memories of the jungle where he was captured, but when a baby elephant named Ruby 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 heartwarming adventure, which comes to the screen in an impressive hybrid of live-action and CGI, is based on Katherine Applegate’s bestselling book, which won numerous awards upon its publication in 2013, including the Newbery Medal.

Honestly, I had never heard of this story or book before watching the movie.  I was so excited to see the movie, which we watched as a family and all loved it (of course I cried) and I was so excited to get the book for the kids too.

Step right up to see Sam Rockwell as the voice of Ivan; Angelina Jolie as the voice of Stella; Danny DeVito as the voice of Bob the dog; Helen Mirren as the voice of Snickers the poodle; Brooklynn Prince as the voice of Ruby; Ramon Rodriquez as the mall employee George; Ariana Greenblatt as George’s daughter Julia; Chaka Khan as the voice of Henrietta the chicken; Mike White as the voice of Frankie the seal; Ron Funches as the voice of Murphy the rabbit; Phillipa Soo as the voice of Thelma the parrot; and Bryan Cranston as Mack, the mall’s owner.  With a cast like this, this movie is a must see.  Believe me, the entire family will love it.

I also wanted to share this great educational activity packet which you can print here for FREE.
