“I have an owner and he’s Superman,” Krypto the Super-Dog explains. I’m already sold! Warner Bros. Pictures has just released the official trailer for DC League of Super-Pets, starring Dwayne Johnson as (Super)man’s best friend, Krypto. Superman gets a call of duty we can all relate to. Wake up! It’s time for a walk! A Superwalk! Let me introduce you to the Super-Pets!
Dwayne Johnson stars as the voice of Krypto the Super-Dog in Warner Bros. Pictures’ animated action adventure feature film DC League of Super-Pets, from director Jared Stern.
The film also stars the voices of Kevin Hart (the Jumanji and Secret Life of Pets films), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live, the Magic School Bus Rides Again films, Ferdinand), John Krasinski (the Quiet Place films, The Office, Free Guy), Vanessa Bayer (Saturday Night Live, Office Christmas Party, Trainwreck), Natasha Lyonne (Show Dogs, Ballmastrz 9009, Orange is the New Black), Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Maya and the Three), Marc Maron (Joker, GLOW), Thomas Middleditch (Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie), Ben Schwartz (Sonic the Hedgehog, Duck Tales), and Keanu Reeves (The Matrix films and John Wick films).
In DC League of Super-Pets, Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime in Metropolis side by side. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince a rag-tag shelter pack—Ace the hound, PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle and Chip the squirrel—to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the superheroes.
Stern, a veteran writer/consultant on the LEGO movies, makes his animated feature film directorial debut, directing from a screenplay he wrote with frequent collaborator John Whittington, based on characters from DC, Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Patricia Hicks, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia and Jared Stern. The executive producers are John Requa, Glenn Ficarra, Nicholas Stoller, Allison Abbate, Chris Leahy, Sharon Taylor and Courtenay Valenti. Stern’s creative team includes production designer Kim Taylor (The LEGO Ninjago Movie) and editors David Egan (Game Night, Vacation) and Jhoanne Reyes (Teen Titans GO!, Young Justice). The music is by Steve Jablonsky (the Transformers films).
To say that the genre of talking animals films in one of my all time favorites is a gross understatement. While my tastes lean towards the live action classics such as Babe or Air Bud, and don’t think for a second I won’t be catching the soon-to-be Christmas classic, Pups Alone, starring Dolph Lundgren. I love all of those capers, live action or animated, where our furry, prickly, slithery, scaley or otherwise heroes save the day. Now we have actual superhero animals?! And we have to wait until when?
Warner Bros. Pictures Presents A Seven Bucks Production, DC League of Super-Pets. The film will be released by Warner Bros. Pictures in theaters internationally beginning 18 May 2022 and in North America on May 20, 2022.
