Chip the Squirrel Powers Up in 'DC League of Super-Pets'
He’s here to electrify this mission.
Diego Luna (Andor, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) is Chip in Warner Bros. Pictures’ animated action adventure DC League of Super-Pets.
Check out the featurette “Meet the Pets - Chip the Squirrel” below and watch the film in cinemas across the Philippines on July 27.
Chip is content to spend his days within the sleepy confines of Metropolis’s Tailhuggers animal shelter, terrified by life and thankful for the safety of a cold, steel cage. But when his beloved sanctuary is suddenly under attack, this scaredy squirrel suddenly gets the power to shoot lightning out of his paws! Now the reluctant hero must overcome his fears—and find the will to power up—in order to help save the Justice League.
Dwayne Johnson stars as the voice of Krypto the Super-Dog in DC League of Super-Pets from director Jared Stern.
The film also stars the voices of Kevin Hart (the Jumanji and Secret Life of Pets films), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live, Ferdinand), John Krasinski (the Quiet Place films), Vanessa Bayer (Saturday Night Live), Natasha Lyonne (Show Dogs), Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Marc Maron (Joker), Thomas Middleditch (Godzilla: King of the Monsters), Ben Schwartz (Sonic the Hedgehog), and Keanu Reeves (the Matrix and John Wick films).
In DC League of Super-Pets, Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime in Metropolis side by side. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince a rag-tag shelter pack—Ace the hound, PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle and Chip the squirrel—to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the Super Heroes.
Stern, a veteran writer/consultant on the “LEGO®” movies, makes his animated feature film directorial debut, directing from a screenplay he wrote with frequent collaborator John Whittington, based on characters from DC, Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Patricia Hicks, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia and Jared Stern.
