The announcement was made today by Epic Pictures Group CEO Patrick Ewald and Co-Founder Shaked Berenson.

Directed by veteran Disney animator Mike Disa (Tarzan, Pochantos), SPACE DOGS: ADVENTURE TO THE MOON is a family-friendly adventure film inspired by the first dogs in space, Belka and Strelka. Featuring two female leads - Alicia Silverstone (Clueless) as Belka and AshLee Simpson (7th Heaven) as Strelka, the film delivers laughs and thrills while seeking to encourage children to develop a healthy interest in science and technology. Appropriate for families and children of all ages, the film is rated G by the MPAA and recognized with the Dove Family-Approved Seal.

The story blasts off on an out-of-this-world star-studded adventure with teenage astronaut, Pushok (Samuel Witwer, Being Human, Smallville), who is determined to find his missing astronaut father. Against all odds, Pushok stows away on a US rocket ship to the moon but soon finds he is not alone, as he is reunited with his mom and encounters a macho monkey and a baby alien. Together, the furry heroes learn the true meaning of teamwork as they join the search for Pushok's dad.
