The Best Positive Quotes From Flora & Ulysses on Disney Plus

My daughters and I watched a screening of family friendly adventure comedy Flora And Ulysses, coming to Disney Plus on February 19th, and we really enjoyed it! 

It’s cute, warm, and really fun for kids. Plus, it has a lot of Marvel easter eggs and quotes, too!

I made a list of the best and most positive quotes from the film, because I know you’ll love these Flora And Ulysses quotes.


Flora & Ulysses is a family-friendly comedy based on the Newbery Award-winning book about 10-year-old Flora Buckman, an avid comic book fan and a self-avowed cynic, whose parents have recently separated.

After rescuing and adopting a squirrel she names Ulysses, Flora is amazed to discover he possesses unique superhero powers, which take them on an adventure of humorous complications that ultimately change Flora’s life–and her outlook–forever.

Flora is on a mission to protect Ulysses from Miller, who wants to capture the superhero squirrel.


The Disney+’s Flora & Ulysses cast features Matilda Lawler, John Kassir, Alyson Hannigan, Ben Schwartz, Anna Deavere Smith, Danny Pudi, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Kate Micucci, Bobby Moynihan, Nancy Robertson, Emma Oliver, Christine Lee, Kyle Strauts, David Milchard, Darien Martin, Simon Chin, Craig Haas, Malaika Jackson, Jesse Reid, Arran Henn, Arkie Kandola, Carolyn Yonge, Emma Gould, and Nicholas Dohy.
