December 3rd, 2019 | by vBollywood Author

“I came up here because I didn’t want to be around anybody,” says Harrison Ford in the first The Call of the Wild trailer. The Star Wars veteran is not talking about escaping paparazzi. Hollywood’s latest live-action adaptation is of Jack London’s Call of the Wild.

It’s live-action for Ford, who plays John Thornton, an out-doorsman settled up North at “the last place on earth.” For Buck, a “dog like no other” at the center of London’s story, he’s CGI. The results give Harrison Ford his own uplifting dog movie,as the music permeating throughout the trailer.

The Call of the Wild is the story of Buck, who is stolen from his California home in the 1890s. After escaping, he finds himself in the Alaskan Yukon during the Gold Rush where he becomes the rookie pup on a dogsled delivery service. When he meets John, the pair go on an adventure “beyond all maps.”

Chris Sanders is the director behind Lilo & Stitch, How to Train Your Dragon, and The Croods, helms this live-action/animation hybrid. “photorealistic” is used in the press release from 20th Century Fox that presents Disney’s photorealistic animated films The Jungle Book and The Lion King.

Opposite Ford is Dan Stevens (Beauty and the Beast), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2), Bradley Whitford (Get Out), and Colin Woodell (The Purge TV series).

The Call Of The Wild is scheduled for release February 21, 2020.
