Warner Bros. has released a TV ad promoting the upcoming family animation Smallfoot, a film which turns the Bigfoot legend upside down.
Directed by directed by Karey Kirkpatrick, the movie follows a Yeti community as they deal with incredible news: the existence of humans. When a bright young Yeti named Migo finds the shoe of a “smallfoot”, the lives of those living in his snowy village are turned upside down.
Smallfoot, a story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery, features an all-star cast including Channing Tatum as Migo, James Corden as the Smallfoot, Percy, Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, Gina Rodriguez, Danny DeVito, Yara Shahidi, Ely Henry, and Jimmy Tatro.
The song used in the 30-second promo is the 1981 hit single “”Don’t Stop Believin'” by American rock band Journey, from their seventh album, “Escape”. The track was featured in several TV shows, including the third season of Scrubs, the second season of Cold Case, the final scene of HBO’s The Sopranos series finale “Made in America,” and has become a rallying cry for a multitude of sports teams, first by the Chicago White Sox, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and others. It was also used in a 2017 TV commercial for the Nissan Rogue.
Smallfoot is scheduled to debut in theaters this fall, on September 28, 2018.
