Get ready to mush to AMC for a new animated adventure, just before winter arrives. ARCTIC DOGS is sure to be fun for the whole family and features a cool, star-studded cast. Here are just a few of the film's Arctic characters and the talented actors who voice them.
Jeremy Renner is known for his dramatic roles in films like THE HURT LOCKER and WIND RIVER. (You may also recognize him as Clint Barton/Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.) In ARCTIC DOGS, however, Renner lends his voice to an optimistic, ambitious fox named Swifty, who just wants a chance to prove himself worthy of the Top Dog role at Arctic Blast Delivery Service. When Swifty seizes the opportunity to deliver a mysterious package to a secret location, he stumbles upon a hidden fortress that belongs to Otto Von Walrus.
Otto Von Walrus
Otto Von Walrus is a blubbery evil genius, who walks around on mechanical legs and commands a loyal army of oddly polite puffin henchmen. But that's only the tip of the iceberg of what Swifty discovers. Otto has a diabolical plan to melt the Arctic and reign as the world's supreme leader. The militant walrus is voiced by John Cleese, a legendary performer best known for his work in the Monty Python series and movies.
Swifty isn't alone on his journey — he's joined by his friend, PB, an introverted polar bear who's supportive but skeptical of Swifty's dreams. When Swifty returns to tell his friends of Otto's plot, PB agrees to help him stop the disaster and save the day. The voice of PB is one you undoubtedly will recognize, if not from the animated BOSS BABY, then definitely from his blockbuster roles in films like MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT (or recurring slot on "Saturday Night Live"): Oscar® nominee Alec Baldwin.
James Franco lends his voice to Lemmy, a scatterbrained albatross who also works for the Arctic Blast Delivery Service. Franco is widely known for his work in comedy, usually alongside fellow funnyman Seth Rogen. The duo starred together in the animated SAUSAGE PARTY, but that film was not at all family-friendly. We're excited to see how he'll channel his comedic style in this PG release.
Finally, Heidi Klum plays Jade Fox, a tough as nails mechanic that makes Swifty swoon. This isn't the supermodel's first go at acting, though she's mostly played herself on screen. Could this movie open up a new career for Klum?
