Sgt Stubby: An American Hero Family Movie, coming to theaters on April 13! #Giveaway



Meet Sgt. Stubby!  As documented in history books but largely forgotten today, the heartwarming CG-animated feature Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero from Fun Academy Studios, based on the incredible true story of the unbreakable bond between a young Soldier and a stray dog, is coming to theaters across the U.S. on April 13!  For his valorous feats, Stubby is still recognized today as the first dog promoted to the rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Army, and the most decorated dog in American history! Set against the backdrop of America’s entry into World War I, this CG-animated feature shows the world that the greatest heroes can come from the unlikeliest of places. 

Opening April 13 on approximately 3,000 screens across the U.S. and Canada and coinciding with the year-long 100th commemoration of the United States’ role in the “War to End All Wars,” Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero tells the story of Army “doughboy” Robert Conroy (Logan Lerman) whose life is forever changed when a little stray dog with a stubby tail wanders into a training camp in New Haven, Conn.  Conroy gives his new friend a meal, a name, a family and the chance to embark on an adventure that would define a century.
Narrated by Robert’s sister Margaret (Helena Bonham Carter), Stubby and his new best friend quickly find themselves in the trenches of France. Befriended by French poilu Soldier Gaston Baptiste (Gérard Dépardieu), Stubby accompanies the duo along their epic journey through harsh conditions and incredible acts of courage. Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero was directed by award-winning documentarian Richard Lanni in his feature film debut and stars Logan Lerman (Fury, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Percy Jackson & The Olympians), Helena Bonham Carter (the upcoming Ocean’s 8, the Harry Potter films, The King’s Speech, Sweeney Todd) and Gérard Depardieu (Life of Pi, Cyrano De Bergerac, The Man in the Iron Mask, Green Card).


Featuring an original score by Patrick Doyle (Brave, Thor, Cinderella, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), Sgt. Stubby is produced and distributed by Fun Academy Motion Pictures with animation by Mikros Animation, a Technicolor company.  Screenwriters are Richard Lanni and Mike Stokey II (Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Alexander, Born on the Fourth of July), with editing by Mark Solomon (Frankenweenie, Chicken Run, Shark Tale, the upcoming Sherlock Gnomes). Produced by Laurent Rodon and Emily Cantrill; and executive produced by Frank Lumpkin III, Tom Sheehan and Richard Lanni.

And don’t forget to check out the book Stubby the Dog Soldier: World War I Hero from Capstone for readers ages 5-7 by Blake Hoena and Illustrated by Oliver Hurst – a 2015 Notable Social Studies Trades Book for Young People selection from the National Council for the Social Studies & the Children’s Book Council. 
Plus, check out the fun FREE ACTIVITY PACK  at www.StubbyMovie.com  for more fun facts about Stubby plus some exciting activities, including making your own origami Stubby, a maze, coloring sheets and more! 
Beyond his military exploits, Stubby’s status as an adopted stray has resulted in nearly a century of recognition by animal rescues and welfare organizations and Fun Academy has partnered with more than 90 regional and national animal organizations across all 50 states to shine a light on the human-animal bond and the amazing things adopted animals can do when given a chance in life.
