Based on an incredible true story, the heartwarming, family-friendly animated adventure SGT. STUBBY: AN AMERICAN HERO deploys on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital and On Demand December 11, 2018 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Featuring an all-star voice cast, SGT. STUBBY: AN AMERICAN HERO has been lauded by critics and received the Dove Foundation’s “All Ages” Seal of Approval and Parents’ Choice Gold Award, making it an ideal holiday gift that the whole family can enjoy.
SGT. STUBBY: AN AMERICAN HERO depicts the little-known true story of the unbreakable bond between a young soldier and a stray dog on the brink of America’s entry into World War I. 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. He is also widely considered the forerunner to the U.S. Army’s working dog program. The delightful animated film shows the world that the greatest heroes can come from the unlikeliest places.
SGT. STUBBY: AN AMERICAN HERO was directed by award-winning documentarian Richard Lanni and features the voices of Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson & The Olympians) and Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter films).
The SGT. STUBBY: AN AMERICAN HERO Blu-ray and DVD both include a digital copy along with a behind-the-scenes featurette with cast interviews, a documentary short about the real Sgt. Stubby, never-before-seen production art and a historic photo gallery of the early 20th century world as depicted in the film.
With an original score by Patrick Doyle (Brave) and animation services by Technicolor that combine CGI and vintage-inspired 2D sequences, SGT. STUBBY: AN AMERICAN HERO was produced and distributed by Fun Academy Motion Pictures. Screenwriters are Richard Lanni and Mike Stokey II (Band of Brothers), with editing by Mark Solomon (Chicken Run).

The true story of Sgt. Stubby has resonated with audiences of all ages, including parents, educators, animal lovers, military supporters and history buffs alike. The film has been selected as an official project of the United States World War I Centennial Commission and its French counterpart, La Mission du Centenaire 1914-18; additional endorsements and educational partners include the American Legion, the Connecticut State Library, the National Infantry Museum Foundation, the National World War I Museum & Memorial and the Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes.
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. As part of the film’s theatrical release, Fun Academy partnered with more than 90 regional and national animal organizations across all 50 states – including the Humane Society of the United States and the Westminster Kennel Club – to shine a light on the human-animal bond and the amazing things adopted animals can do when given a chance in life.
