‘Sgt Stubby: An Unlikely Hero’ In Cinemas Today

With the “War to End All Wars” looming, the life of Army “doughboy” Robert Conroy (Logan Lerman – ‘Fury’, ‘Perks of Being a Wallflower’, ‘Percy Jackson & The Olympians’) is forever changed when the little stray dog with a stubby tail wanders into his training camp, where Conroy gives his new friend a meal, a name, a family and a chance to embark on an adventure that would define a century.

A genuine, four-legged American hero, Sgt. Stubby soon finds himself in the trenches of France, embarking on a historic adventure by his beloved Soldier’s side, to show the world the true meaning of dedication, loyalty and bravery in this thrilling “tail” of adventure for the entire family.



Narrated by Robert’s sister Margaret, voiced by Helena Bonham Carter, Stubby and his new best friend quickly find themselves in the trenches of France. Befriended by French poilu Soldier Gaston Baptiste, voiced by legendary French actor, Gerard Depardieu, Stubby accompanies the duo along their epic journey through harsh conditions and incredible acts of courage. As combat rages around them, Stubby keeps the trenches vermin-free, alerts his comrades-in-arms of incoming attacks, rescues the wounded in No Man’s Land and even catches a German spy! Back home, his exploits make the front pages of newspapers across the country and steal the heart of the nation.

‘Sgt Stubby: An Unlikely Hero’ is in cinemas across the UK and Ireland from today. Find more information on Twitter and their official website.
