To celebrate International Dog Day, Disney+ has shared the official trailer and key art for Pixar Animation Studios’ Dug Days! Bob Peterson, the voice of Dug then and now as well as a screenwriter and co-director on Up, wrote and directed the new series of five shorts. Kim Collins serves as producer.
“Dug is pure of heart — he’s a good soul. I think people enjoy that part of Dug,” Peterson said in a press release. “Plus, people love their dogs. We’ve gone to great lengths to include truth in dog behavior, so they see their own dogs in Dug.”
“Everything is new, and he’s excited about all of it,” Peterson continued. “But the smallest things can distract Dug, never mind an actual squirrel.”
Dug Days is a new series of five shorts that follows the humorous misadventures of Dug, the lovable dog from Disney and Pixar’s Oscar-winning feature film Up, whose high-tech collar translates his thoughts into speech.
