Hank, a scrappy dreamer of a dog, aspires to one day be a bonafide Samurai. But in a world of cats, he’s not sure it’ll ever happen… that is until the nefarious warlord, Ika Chu, hustles the unwitting Hank into becoming the samurai for the town of Kakamucho; the same town Ika Chu intends to pillage.

Directed by Mark Koetsier (“The Grinch,” “Big Hero 6,” “Madagascar: Escape to Africa”) and Rob Minkoff (“The Lion King,” “Mr Peabody & Sherman,” “Stuart Little”), and from the mind of comedy genius Mel Brooks, this Japanese-inspired animated comedy teaches kids and adults alike that embracing diversity is what truly makes you a hero.

It's sure to be a treat the whole family can enjoy

“Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank is a freewheeling mash-up of east and west. An action-packed comedy featuring incredible performances from our stellar cast of hilarious characters, it also delivers a great message of inclusion and acceptance.” Rob Minkoff

This really is a film for everyone

“Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank may follow in the footsteps of the classic & unrivalled Blazing Saddles, but it’s so much more. Packed with humour that reflects on our society right now, the film is intertwined with a lot of love, heart and hope.The small town of Kakamucho is the typical western, dusty, drab town in the Sergio Leone style, which contrasts with the bright vibrant bold colours of the dastardly Ika Chu’s palace. It’s a bold and unique design throughout which we have pushed to an extreme and this all leads towards the personalities of the colourful characters’ which reside there.” Mark Koetsier.

Aniventure is always on the lookout for its next great project.
