Rock Dog is an upcoming 3-D animated comedy based on the Chinese graphic novel Tibetan Rock Dog by Zheng Jun, following Bodi, a Tibetan Mastiff who leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a musician after a radio literally falls out from the sky into his hands and hears a song by rock legend Angus Scattergood. His journey is not easy, though, as his quest sets into motion a series of completely unexpected events.
Directed by Ash Brannon, the film features the voices of Luke Wilson, Eddie Izzard, J.K. Simmons, Lewis Black, Kenan Thompson, Mae Whitman, Jorge Garcia, Matt Dillon, and Sam Elliott. The release in theaters is slated for February 24, 2017.
