Dug on Disney+Pixar Animation Studios’ Dug Days, a new series of five shorts that follows the humorous misadventures of Dug, the lovable dog from Disney and Pixar’s Oscar®-winning feature film Up whose high-tech collar translates his thoughts into speech.

Bob Peterson, the voice of Dug then and now, wrote and directed the new shorts; Kim Collins produces.

It was familiar material for Peterson, who was a screenwriter and co-director on Up, which won an Oscar® for best animated feature. He has long understood why fans are so drawn to the character. “Dug is pure of heart—he’s a good soul. I think people enjoy that part of Dug,” says Peterson “Plus, people love their dogs. We’ve gone to great lengths to include truth in dog behaviour, so they see their own dogs in Dug.”

An episode of Dug is perfect for a short wind-down after school.

Also popular in our household the new version of Lady and the Tramp – except Harriet wanted to see the puppies that were in the original animated film; Luca and the fabulous Cruella, an absolute must see.

For new subscribers, Disney+ costs £7.99/month or £79.90/annual.
