Angus is a major character in Ferdinand.
He is voiced by David Tennant also voiced Scrooge McDuck from DuckTales 2017. He speaks with a powerful, passionate, lively Scottish accent.
Angus is a large, overweight Highland bull with long, distinctive red-orange hair (but blonde on his head) and skin with emerald green eyes, a beige muzzle, small ears, short legs, a tail with a tuft at the tip, brown hooves and crooked teeth. He later appears with the blonde fur slicked back on his head so his eyes are visible. His horns are much smaller and shorter than they should be. One of his ears is nicked.
He is happy, respectful, brave, anxious, feisty and insecure. Angus is very grateful when Ferdinand helps him to regain his sight.
Role in film
Years later, Ferdinand finds that Bones, Guapo, and Valiente have also grown up and have been joined by a Scottish bull named Angus and a silent but intimidating bull named Maquina.
One day, a legendary but egotistical bullfighter named El Primero arrives at Casa del Toro to choose the biggest, strongest, and most aggressive bull to fight with before he retires.
He and other bulls tell Ferdinand that it will eventually be their fate if they are not chosen for a bullfight. Although Ferdinand manages to earn the respect of the other bulls, except Valiente, after a dance-off with three German horses, they still hold on to the belief that fighting is the only way for them to live.
He and others try desperately to lose the humans and wind up at Atocha train station in Madrid that Ferdinand sees as his ticket back to Nina. When the bulls push a small railroad cart to catch the train back to Nina's home, Ferdinand sacrifices himself so the other bulls can escape (except for Lupe, who stays behind in shock after Ferdinand's act) and is captured by Moreno and his employees.
He and other bulls arrive, thinking they’re too late to save Ferdinand, but instead witness Ferdinand making history as the first bull to ever make it out of a bullfight alive by being himself.
He and others are joined to Ferdinand and live in Nina's farm. The film ends with Ferdinand, his bull friends, and Lupe watching the sunset over Ronda from a field of flowers.
