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. It’s directed by Ash Brannon, who previously directed SURF’S UP and TOY STORY 2. The screenplay is written by Brannon and Kurt Voelker.

Here’s the full synopsis:

For the Tibetan Mastiffs living on Snow Mountain, a dog’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 Khampa’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 ‘n’ roll star. Yet that means defying his father’s wishes, heading to the city, and locating the legendary—and reclusive—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 wolves’ plot to take Snow Mountain, his life will be in tune. Bodi will become what he’s always dreamed of being: More than a dog…..more than a Rock God…..he’ll be a ROCK DOG!
