Get ready to fetch with one of the best, Dog Man is coming to the big screen! Lame jokes aside, fans of the Dog Man graphic novels are super excited about the upcoming animated feature from DreamWorks Animation. If you are also looking forward to checking out the movie, keep this page bookmarked as we'll be updating it with more details as they surface.

The Dog Man books follows a police officer and his loyal canine partner after becoming severely injured in the line of duty. To save the lives of these two heroes, a surgeon fuses the two -- and so the two become Dog Man, fighting crime one bone at a time. Well, when Dog Man isn't busy chasing squirrels, that is. The graphic novel series was created by Dav Pikey and are a spin-off to the Captain Underpants books. There are 11 books out so far, with another one coming out in March 2024.

Our Flip-O-Rama fingers are getting an upgrade! A movie about the colorful characters was rumored for a while, but it wasn't until recently that we learned more about it -- including a timeframe for the release date. Now, let's get to all the facts we know so far.

Dog Man movie updates

DreamWorks Animation is bringing the Dog Man characters to life in the upcoming animated feature of the same name. The latest update to come in is a big one! According to a report from Deadline, the film studio has shared that Dog Man will premiere in January 2025. The exact release date has not been announced, but it's great to have a date to look forward to.

Now, as far as what the movie will be about, it's anyone's guess since there are 11 books out. However, since this is the first movie, it's a safe bet that it will cover the first book in order to introduce the characters and set up the story. That said, if the movie is successful, this will probably become a movie franchise.

Another thing we are waiting to learn, is the voice cast! Again, we'll update this post as soon as we learn more.
