The following is a partnered post with The Call of The Wild In Theatres February 21, 2020! Details from the film are from Publicity Materials on YouTube.
Have you been eagerly awaiting to see the film, THE CALL OF THE WILD? Well wait no longer because it will be coming to a theater near you this Friday.
Ever since I saw these previews, I have been excited to see how Harrison Ford will play the role of John Thornton and how this book would be adapted for the the big screen. Plus, I have been wanting to see how Buck, a dog who has been through a lot of extreme changes in his life, is created through CGI.
Now I recall reading this book in High School and when I looked it up on Accelerated Reader for my middle schooler it has a level of 8th Grade. Thanks to Walt Disney Studios, I will also be able to take my 13 year old son to go see the film with a $25 Fandango Gift Card as well as give him the gift of a new book.
About The Call of The Wild:
Adapted from the beloved literary classic, THE CALL OF THE WILD vividly brings to the screen the story of Buck, a big-hearted dog whose blissful domestic life is turned upside down when he is suddenly uprooted from his California home and transplanted to the exotic wilds of the Yukon during the Gold Rush of the 1890s.
As the newest rookie on a mail delivery dog sled team–and later its leader–Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime, ultimately finding his true place in the world and becoming his own master.
As a live-action/animation hybrid, THE CALL OF THE WILD employs cutting edge visual effects and animation technology in order to render the animals in the film as fully photorealistic–and emotionally authentic–characters.
Directed by Chris Sanders Based on the novel by Jack London the Screenplay is by Michael Green and the film is Produced by Erwin Stoff.
Cast includes Harrison Ford, Dan Stevens, Omar Sy, Karen Gillan, Bradley Whitford, Colin Woodell.
Now based on what I recall from details in the book, there were animal fights as well as confrontations with humans. However, looking at the Rotten Tomatoes reviews and the fact that this film being rated PG, I can’t imagine this adaptation being overly graphic.
