Sometimes musical inspiration comes from the sky.
Summit Premiere released character posters for the upcoming animated movie ROCK DOG.
The film has an all-star voice cast that includes Luke Wilson, Eddie Izzard, J.K. Simmons, Lewis Black, Kenan Thompson and Mae Whitman. Itâ€™s directed by Ash Brannon, who previously directed SURFâ€™S UP and TOY STORY 2. The screenplay is written by Brannon and Kurt Voelker.
Hereâ€™s the full synopsis:
For the Tibetan Mastiffs living on Snow Mountain, a dogâ€™s life has a simple riff: Guard a peaceful village of wool-making sheep from the thuggish wolf Linnux (Black) and his rabid pack. To avoid distractions, Mastiff leader Khampa (Simmons) forbids all music from the mountain. But when Khampaâ€™s son Bodi (Wilson) discovers a radio dropped by a passing airplane, it takes just a few guitar licks for his fate to be sealed: Bodi wants to be a rock â€˜nâ€™ roll star. Yet that means defying his fatherâ€™s wishes, heading to the city, and locating the legendaryâ€”and reclusiveâ€”musician Angus Scattergood (Izzard), who needs to write a new song and fast.
If Bodi can put a band together, help Angus with his song, and defeat the wolvesâ€™ plot to take Snow Mountain, his life will be in tune. Bodi will become what heâ€™s always dreamed of being: More than a dogâ€¦..more than a Rock Godâ€¦..heâ€™ll be a ROCK DOG!
