Based on the 1903 Jack London novel of the same name, The Call of the Wild sees Harrison Ford going to the dogs.

Or, more specifically, one dog – Buck.

This follows hot on the heels of his turn voicing a farm dog in Illumination’s ace The Secret Life of Pets 2, so Mr Ford definitely has a doggo thing going on.

Speaking of animation, the director of this here film, Chris Sanders, has previous experience in the field, giving us How to Train Your Dragon, The Croods and Lilo & Stitch. This is his first non-animated feature – although that there Buck appears to be CGI, so maybe he hasn’t strayed too far from his roots?

Anyhoo, if you’re unfamiliar with the story, it involves a woofer who gets uprooted from a cushy Californian life and sold into virtual slavery as an Alaskan sled dog.

Karen Gillan, Bradley Whitford and Dan Stevens star alongside Harrison Ford and Buck the polygon dog.

The Call of the Wild is set to bound into Aussie cinemas in 2020.
