Based on an incredible true story, the family-friendly animated adventure Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero depicts the little known true story of the unbreakable bond between a young soldier and a stray dog on the brink of America’s entry into the first World War.

The dog, incidentally, was the first canine promoted to the rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Arm! He was the most decorated dog in American history and is widely considered the forerunner to the U.S. Army’s working dog program. Returning home to a hero’s welcome, Stubby and Conroy toured the country leading victory parades and met three sitting U.S. presidents, among other honors.

The movie features an all-star voice cast that includes Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson The Lightning Thief), Helena Bonham Carter (Burton and Taylor) and Gerard Depardieu (1900).

Sgt. Stubby has been lauded by critics and received the Dove Foundation’s “All Ages” Seal of Approval, the Parents’ Choice Gold Award, the National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval and four plugs (out of five) from Focus on the Family’s Plugged In.
