ABOUT THE MOVIE: From Walt Disney Pictures comes an animated comedy adventure featuring a super-dog named BOLT (voice of JOHN TRAVOLTA), whose days are filled with danger and intrigue—at least until the cameras stop rolling. When the star of a hit TV show is accidentally shipped from his Hollywood soundstage to New York City, he begins his biggest adventure yet—a cross-country journey through the real world to get back to his owner and co-star, Penny (voice of MILEY CYRUS). Armed only with the delusions that all his amazing feats and powers are real, and the help of two unlikely traveling companions—a jaded, abandoned housecat named Mittens (voice of SUSIE ESSMAN) and a TV-obsessed hamster named Rhino (voice of MARK WALTON) — Bolt discovers he doesn’t need superpowers to be a hero.
ABOUT THE ASPCA: The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was founded in 1866 and continues to battle animal cruelty today. Whether it’s saving a pet who has been accidentally injured, working to pass humane laws, rescuing animals from abuse or sharing resources with shelters across the country, the ASCPA works toward the day in which no animal will live in pain or fear.
Media information Media trucks will be allowed on Boston City Hall Plaza by entering via Cambridge Street and proceeding down the ramp; footage from BOLT will be available on Beta tape.
