The Call of The Wild is coming to theaters February 21, 2020. Fans of the beloved novel by Jack London will want to see this film adaption starring Harrison Ford. Yes, the animals are CGI, which means no one was harmed in any way. But the film still had heart while taking us on a journey through the Yukon wilderness.
My family just got back from from a special screening (with dogs in tow, including the real-life Buck) and had a fun adventure with this film. The kids loved it and are asking for a dog…which I was afraid of (we can’t in our apartment, sorry boys). **And just a warning: if you have sensitive kids, there’s scenes that display animal cruelty and violence.**

Twentieth Century Studios’ “The Call of the Wild,” adapted from the novel by Jack London, vividly brings to the screen the story of Buck, a big-hearted dog whose blissful domestic life is turned upside down when he is suddenly uprooted from his California home and transplanted to the exotic wilds of the Canadian Yukon during the Gold Rush of the 1890s. As the newest rookie on a mail delivery dog sled team–and later its leader–Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime, ultimately finding his true place in the world and becoming his own master. As a live-action/animation hybrid, “The Call of the Wild” employs visual effects and animation technology to bring the animals in the film to life. “The Call of the Wild” is directed by Chris Sanders and stars Harrison Ford, Omar Sy, Dan Stevens, Karen Gillan, Bradley Whitford, Cara Gee, Michael Horse, Jean Louisa Kelly, Colin Woodell, Adam Fergus and Abraham Benrubi. Erwin Stoff, p.g.a. and James Mangold, p.g.a. are producing with Diana Pokorny, Ryan Stafford and screenwriter Michael Green serving as executive producers.
