Originally developed by Chris Sanders (creator and co-director of Lilo & Stitch (2002)) as "American Dog", with a similar storyline, but with major location and character changes. The titular dog, named Henry, originally had much more of a "Stitch" look, the character of Mittens was originally Ogo, a male cat with an eye patch who worked as a mechanic in a junkyard (this character eventually became the star of Sanders' personal webcomic, "Kiskaloo"), Rhino was originally an oversized radioactive rabbit, and a lot of the movie took place in the deserts of the American Southwest (similar to the location of Pixar's Cars (2006)). Sanders was replaced by Chris Williams and Byron Howard, and the project was overhauled in late 2006. See more »

This movie was enjoyable all around. I saw a special screening last tuesday and it was great. I found that kids felt they were intwined with in the movie. It made you feel like you were right there helping out Bolt and his friends. The character traits and development were well done. From the pigeons of New York to the pigeons in California every character had their own special personality. The graphics were superb and it made you feel as if the movie was real. John Travolta does the voice of Bolt. I wasn't sure if at first he was a good choice, but he made Bolt his own. Miley Cyrus was really good as the voice of Penny. She did well and her timing was great, but the real character that made this movie was Rhino the Hamster. He steals every scene and you and your kids will be quoting his lines for weeks to come. I saw take your kids to see this and don't worry it is great for adults too.
