Air Bud Entertainment newest film, “Pup Star”, will air for the first time on broadcast television on Disney Channel, Friday, February 17 (8:30 p.m. ET/PT). From the franchise of the well loved ‘Air Bud’ and ‘Disney Air Buddies’ movies, “Pup Star” is a dog-filled spin on America’s hit TV singing competitions, loaded with music, including 13 original songs, and the biggest cast of talking (and singing) canines ever assembled.
“Pup Star” follows an adorable Yorkie pup, Tiny (voiced by Kaitlyn Maher, America’s Got Talent), who finds herself on an action-packed cross-country journey to compete in the ultimate singing competition for dogs — Pup Star. Featuring an all-star celebrity judging panel including ‘Dog Gnarly’ (voiced by Ziggy Marley), ‘Blake Sheltie,’ ‘Lady Paw Paw’ and a loveable but always disagreeable ‘Simon Growl,’ “Pup Star” showcases canine contestants including P-Diggy (voiced by Juicy J) and the tall-hat wearing ‘Furrell.’
“Pup Star” also stars Makenzie Moss (Steve Jobs), Jed Rees (Deadpool), David DeLuise (Wizards of Waverly Place), John Ratzenberger, Tom Everett Scott, Bonnie Somerville, Nikki Blonsky and Diedrich Bader. It’s directed and executive produced by Robert Vince. Anna McRoberts produced and co-wrote the film with Robert Vince.
The second film in the franchise, “Pup Star: Season Two”, is in production for a fall 2017 release. Air Bud Entertainment movies are available on Netflix and digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.
