Maybe they made him to be an unrecognizable breed so as not to boost the popularity of a certian breed as other movies have.(Snow Dogs-Huskies, 101 Dalmations-Dalmations,Marley and Me-Labradors)

Agreed. Definitely an AWS.

HELL YEAH!!!
I hope Chris Sanders gets to make American Dog one day. I'd go out to see it no matter how bad other people think it is...

Haven't seen commercials for the movie lately... what's up with that?

OK, here's how I feel about the whole "Bolt" vs. "American Dog" thing...

I loved "Lilo & Stitch". I loved that it was quirky, and different, and not standard Disney fare in a lot of ways. But honestly, after seeing "Bolt", and reading everything that I've read about its development, I can't imagine that I would've preferred Sanders' vision over the final product. Quirky is great when it serves the storyline, and it was perfect for a story about an orphaned little girl who finds a best friend in an outlaw alien. But being quirky just for the sake of being quirky-- like, for instance, tossing a random giant mutant bunny into a story about a lost TV-star dog-- doesn't always make a ton of sense to me, and in this case, could have been tantamount to box office suicide.

But that's just me. :)

Sounds like they're getting desperate now. Honestly, ANOTHER Mater short? I'm glad I went to see it before that... XP

AAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

But... for a 5+ year old Shep, he sure is small. I think by that age he'd be big.

It's just character design. His proportions are altered to make him cuter, but it's pretty clear he's a German Shepard. Just look at the first of these pieces of concept art:

Well he was from a pet store, so he could just be an improperly bred puppy mill dog, like the "teacup" type. :p

I did finally see this a few days ago. It's cute, but I didn't find it extremely great.

It's in fact lampshaded in Bolt - adding aliens in the tv show for the sake of being different and having plot immediately made the Bolt show less appealing (at least to the hamster fanboy Rhino).

I liked the movie. Watched it first day it arrived of course. I mean its furry after all :)
Guess I'm somewhat like the thread opener.

I saw it last week, and I personally enjoyed it. :) It's got a good cast of characters, great story and excellent animation. Go see it while you can!

I'm sure they are. It's a shame that Twilight moved its premier to the same day as Bolt's. Disney never stood a chance against that...


Just to show the film's amazing art style, check out these beautiful HD screencaps.

Damn I saw this recently and haven't said this in years but I liked a Disney movie...A KIDS DISNEY MOVIE!

Either its the interest in furry media or the movie itself but whatever it is; im getting it on blu-ray!

Thing that pissed me off was Malcolm McDowell...THEY DIDN'T USE HIM BARELY AT ALL! WHAT A WASTE!
