LOS ANGELES -- Bunyan & Babe, a modern take on the American folk story of the legendary lumberjack and his pet blue ox starring the voice talents of John Goodman, Kelsey Grammer, Jeff Foxworthy, Mark Hamill and YouTube star Johnny Orlando, will be available exclusively for free on Google Play starting on January 12 from Cinedigm.
An HD version of the animated film will be available exclusively to redeem for free through Google Play from January 12 to February 16, 2017. Bunyan & Babe will also make its debut in theaters in twelve markets including New York and Los Angeles on February 3.
In Bunyan & Babe, Travis (Johnny Orlando) and his sister Whitney visit their grandparents for the summer and stumble upon the evil plan of a greedy real estate developer (Kelsey Grammer, Cheers, Frasier) to steal the land of the town’s longtime residents. While running from one of the developer’s goons, Travis falls through a magical portal that transports him to the world of American hero, Paul Bunyan (John Goodman, The Big Lebowski, Roseanne) & his pet ox, Babe (Jeff Foxworthy, The Jeff Foxworthy Show). Bunyan and Babe get wrapped up in a brand new adventure, and with the help of their new friends Travis and Whitney, they save the town. Together they learn firsthand that you don’t have to be big to do big things.
The Dove Foundation called Bunyan & Babe “entertaining and fun for the entire family.” The film is Dove “Family-Approved” for all ages.
