Hear 'The Call of the Wild' in a new behind the scenes featurette

Next month, 20th Century Fox is bringing Jack London’s iconic novel to the big screen with The Call of the Wild. The film adaptation stars Harrison Ford, Dan Stevens, Omar Sy, Karen Gillan and Bradley Whitford, all of whom can be glimpsed behind the scenes in a newly released making of featurette titled “Adventure Companions”. Check it out in the player below and, if you missed it, click here to watch the Call of the Wild movie trailer.

Adapted from Jack London’s beloved literary classic, The Call of the Wild aims to vividly bring to the screen the story of Buck, a big-hearted dog whose blissful domestic life is turned upside down when he is suddenly uprooted from his California home and transplanted to the exotic wilds of the Alaskan Yukon during the Gold Rush of the 1890s. As the newest rookie on a mail delivery dog sled team — and later its leader — Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime, ultimately finding his true place in the world and becoming his own master.

As a live-action/animation hybrid, The Call of the Wild employs cutting edge visual effects and animation technology in order to render the animals in the film as fully photorealistic — and emotionally authentic — characters.

Produced By Erwin Stoff and executive produced By Diana Pokorny, The Call of the Wild will be released into theaters beginning February 21, 2020.
