Sgt Stubby: An American Hero Family Movie Giveaway Opportunity!

As documented in history books but largely forgotten today, the heartwarming CG-animated feature Sgt. Stubby: An American 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!

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 American 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.

Stubby: An American 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 SpeechSweeney Todd) and Gérard Depardieu (Life of PiCyrano De Bergerac, The Man in the Iron Mask, Green Card).
