Animated adventure cast includes Luke Evans, Bill Nighy and Gemma Arterton
STARDOG AND TURBOCAT is a 3D-animated comedy-adventure about an unlikely pair of superheroes.
The year is 1969.
And loyal dog Buddy, voiced by Nick Frost (Sean of The Dead), is launched into space by his NASA scientist owner, finally crash landing in the 21st century in the small town of Glenview, where a pet ban is ruthlessly enforced by animal-hating police officer Peck.
Desperate to reunite with his owner, Buddy turns to genius millionaire cat Felix for help: a.k.a. Turbocat voiced by Luke Evans (The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, Fast & Furious 6).
Produced by Sheffield-based Red Star, the film also features the voices of Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans, Quantum of Solace) and Golden Globe and BAFTA winner Bill Nighy (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest & At World’s End; Hot Fuzz, Love Actually).
Animator Jerome Boutroux (Paddington) and Ben Smith head Red Star’s team.
The film is scored by Heather Fenoughty and was recorded live with the Manchester-based Up North Session Orchestra at The Sharp Project’s 80Hertz Studio. Heather’s previous Red Star commissions include Return To The Lost World, Birds of a Feather 3D and 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.
The film has so far been snapped up by Filma (Turkey), Vision (China), MVK (CIS) and Yejilim (S. Korea, Vietnam).
Stardog and Turbocat blasts into UK cinemas on 6th December 2019.
