An action packed animated comedy for all the family inspired by Mel Brooks’ timeless classic, Blazing Saddles. Hank, a loveable dog with a head full of dreams about becoming a samurai, sets off in search of his destiny. Unfortunately for him, what he finds instead is the strange and unwelcoming town of Kakamucho. There, he sticks out like a sore thumb for he is a dog and everyone else is a…cat! Can he win them over? Can he defeat the dastardly deeds of a narcissistic kitty who plans to take over the town? With a little bit of kitten luck and bowl-full of help from a once great samurai warrior, Jimbo, he might just do it.
The feature’s CG animation work will be done at Cinesite, at that company’s Montreal and Vancouver studios. Both facilities recently delivered all of the CG animation production services for MGM’s The Addams Family.
