Bones is a major character in Ferdinand.
He is voiced by Anthony Anderson who also voiced Zach from The Star and played Louis Booker from Kangaroo Jack and Nile Diaz as younger Bones. He is the fastest out of the bulls on the farm.
He has beige skin, light blue eyes, long, white horns, a tuft of short red hair that droops slightly and crooked teeth. Bones has a small, swift, bony body and long legs. He is the shortest out of the bulls.
He is very close with Guapo. He is quite vain when it comes to going fast because he believes he is the fastest. As a younger bull he is proud, competitive and energetic. Later in the movie he is lively, determined, confident, anxious at times, very competitive and overall caring. Secretly he has a sensitive side that he seems to be quite shameful about, blaming it on ‘allergies’.
Role in film
Ferdinand is ridiculed by his fellow calves Bones, Guapo, and Valiente for being non-confrontational and his tendency to smell and protect flowers.
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.
