Meet Bella in First Official Trailer for 'A Dog's Way Home' Adaptation
"I was very far from home, but I knew Lucas was waiting for me…" Sony Pictures has unveiled a trailer for a new dog movie titled A Dog's Way Home, adapted from the book of the same name (by the author of A Dog's Purpose) about the epic 400-mile journey of a dog takes to find her way back to her owner. Jonah Hauer-King plays Luke, the hooman who cares for the dog Bella. The full cast of humans includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Ashley Judd, Alexandra Shipp, Edward James Olmos, and Wes Studi. I'm not fond of the voice for the dog and obviously CGI action on her journey seems a bit much. I am expecting this could turn out like a modern day version of Homeward Bound, because that Disney movie still makes me cry. But I'm not too sure based on all of this footage, but I have still have hope. Dogs will always be the best.
Here's the first official trailer for Charles Martin Smith's A Dog's Way Home, from Sony's YouTube:
