When you’re on the lam, they call the ham.
HITPIG is a pig hired by humans to bring back their escaped animals.
It’s not easy, but it’s a living! His latest hit is Pickles, a naive but
vivacious elephant who has escaped the clutches of an evil Vegas showman. Though HITPIG initially sets out to capture the perky pachyderm for big cash, the unlikely pair find themselves on an unexpected adventure criss-crossing the globe that brings out the best in both of them. Set in a futuristic cyberpunk world, HITPIG proves sometimes what we want isn’t what we need.
From Pulitzer Prize-winning author Berkeley Breathed’s wild imagination comes an adventure about learning that sometimes what we want isn’t what we need.
A stellar cast
“When Lilly agreed to voice one of our lead characters, it was one of those deliciously rare voilà moments for a writer and artist when the final perfect ingredients are added to one’s cooked-up soufflé of imagination. She’ll bring a heartfelt, hilarious performance to one of our lead characters and deliver the message and theme I had intended when I conceived the story, the hope that unexpected connection can deliver in our disconnected lives. I’m in humbled awe of our entire crew and the endless reserves of ingenuity that they’re bringing to this movie.” Says Breathed of the Hitpigpig cast and crew.
