This past weekend, my boys and I attended the Los Angeles movie premiere of Air Bud Entertainment’s Pup Star. If the name Air Bud Entertainment sounds familiar, they are the creators of the beloved “Air Bud” and “Disney Air Buddies” franchise…you know, the movies with those lovable Golden Retrievers. With the new Pup Star movie, they’ve created a world where dogs not only talk, they can sing! This family-friendly movie takes a dog filled spin on America’s hit TV singing competitions.
|Caiden with Tiny
Tiny, a cute little Yorkie pup with a big voice, gets a chance to audition for the singing competition for dogs, “Pup Star.” After she earns a place in the finale, she’s suddenly dog-napped! But with the help of her new friend, Charlie, a retired rock-and-roller, she escapes. Together they leave on an incredible journey through some of music’s most iconic cities. On the way to the competition they meet Big Ears — a soulful Bassett Hound who teaches Tiny to belt out the
blues; Murray — a spiritual shaggy dog who helps her find her inner rhythm; and Emily Rose — a country-singing shepherd who helps her learn to sing from her heart. Most important of all, they all encourage Tiny to believe in herself and never give up on her dreams!
