Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero released its first full-length teaser today. (A shorter teaser was unveiled last June.)
The family film offers a ‘dog’s eye view’ of American history. It’s based on the true-life story of a stray mutt who became the official mascot of an infantry regiment during World War I and participated in seventeen battles on the Western Front.
Stubby marks the first animated feature from Fun Academy Motion Pictures, a Columbus, Georgia studio that raised the film’s $25 million budget through a combination of private investment and production tax credits. The animation is produced by Mikros Image’s Montreal studio, where they also produced the animation for Dreamworks’ Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.
