What does a dog that thinks he has superpowers, a street wise alley cat and a star-struck hamster all have in common? A hilarious and heart warming journey across the USA when Bolt strikes on Disney DVD and 2-Disc Blu-ray Hi-Def Combo Pack, which includes Blu-ray Disc plus a DVD copy of the film in a single package, from 1 July 2009.
In this Academy Award nominated fish-out-of-water tale of bravery and courage, Bolt (voiced by John Travolta) is the crime fighting super-dog of mass television fame. To ensure the reality of his performance on the show, the producers have trained Bolt well. So well in fact that he believes he is capable of the amazing powers and achievements he displays on the show.
Following a particularly intense TV shooting schedule, Bolt escapes from the studio believing that his devoted owner and co-star Penny (voiced by Miley Cyrus) is still in danger, and through a series of circumstances, wakes up to find himself a long way from the safety of his Hollywood studio and lost in New York City!
Desperate to return to Penny's side, still believing he is the super dog, Bolt, and under impression that all cats are veil and somehow connected to the plot to hurt Penny, Bolt kidnaps a street-smart alley cat named Mittens (voiced by Susie Essman) to ensure justice prevails.
As they begin their quest Bolt, with Mittens in tow, soon encounters his number on fan- the energetic TV junkie hamster Rhino (voiced by Mark Walton) and the three unlikely companions embark on a journey of self-discovery across the USA.
As they near their final destination of Hollywood, the unlikely three create a powerful friendship that helps Bolt realise that the world is not as bad as he thought and together they learn the value of teamwork, friendship, and most of all, that you don't need superpowers to be a hero.
From the makers of Cars and The Incredible, Bolt is one of Disney's most sophisticated animated films to date using the amazing all new 'brush stroke' BG animation.
