Win a Sgt. Stubby: An Unlikely Hero Prize Pack

As documented in history books but largely forgotten today, the heartwarming CG-animated feature Sgt. Stubby: An Unlikely Hero from Fun Academy Studios, based on the incredible true story of the unbreakable bond between a young Soldier and a stray dog, is coming to theatres across the U.S. on April 13!  See the new trailer here:

For his valorous feats, Stubby is still recognized today as the first dog promoted to the rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Army, and the most decorated dog in American history, and shows the world that the greatest heroes can come from the unlikeliest of places!  Beyond his military exploits, Stubby’s status as an adopted stray has resulted in nearly a century of recognition by animal rescues and welfare organizations shining a light on the human-animal bond and the amazing things adopted animals can do when given a chance in life.

Opening April 13 on approximately 3,000 screens across the U.S. and Canada and coinciding with the year-long 100th commemoration of the United States’ role in the “War to End All Wars, Sgt. Stubby: An Unlikely Hero tells the story of Army “doughboy” Robert Conroy (Logan Lerman) whose life is forever changed when a little stray dog with a stubby tail wanders into a training camp in New Haven, Conn.  Conroy gives his new friend a meal, a name, a family and the chance to embark on an adventure that would define a century.

Narrated by Robert’s sister Margaret (Helena Bonham Carter), Stubby and his new best friend quickly find themselves in the trenches of France. Befriended by French poilu Soldier Gaston Baptiste (Gérard Dépardieu), Stubby accompanies the duo along their epic journey through harsh conditions and incredible acts of courage.

Sgt. Stubby: An Unlikely Hero was directed by award-winning documentarian Richard Lanni in his feature film debut and stars Logan Lerman (Fury, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Percy Jackson & The Olympians), Helena Bonham Carter (the upcoming Ocean’s 8, the Harry Potter films, The King’s Speech,Sweeney Todd) and Gérard Depardieu (Life of PiCyrano De Bergerac, The Man in the Iron Mask, Green Card).

Genre:  Animated, Family, Adventure, History.  Running Time:  90 Minutes.  MPAA Rating:  PG.

And don’t forget to check out the book Stubby the Dog Soldier: World War I Hero from Capstone for readers ages 5-7 by Blake Hoena and Illustrated by Oliver Hurst – a 2015 Notable Social Studies Trades Book for Young People selection from the National Council for the Social Studies & the Children’s Book Council.
