Disney proves that super heroes come in all genders, shapes and sizes and even animals and if you wanna be more specific; animal breeds! The cute little puppies are back for more in their 7th film.
It all started with 5 Air Bud movies that spun-off into the now more widely knows as "Disney Buddies" have seven movies under their belt, 12 total if you count the Air Bud movies.
They sure have been around for a while and it looks like they are here to stay. I remember growing up with animal movies, where they have actual animals speaking, dubbed by human voices and that was BIG back then. Apparently it is still an entertaining as ever, except infinitely more realistic now.
Those dogs must be highly intelligent to play these roles. They have these pups doing all kinds of tricks, not just standing there talking, which if you think about it: would be hard enough to do. I am always watching them thinking "HOW DO THEY TRAIN THEM TO DO THAT?!?!"
Every time a new "Buddies" movie comes out, I'm like- "Geez!" But not because I am tired of them, more because these dogs have more fun, and get around even better than I do!! With their adventures finding treasures, dealing with ghosts, playing sports, going to space, frolicking around in the snow... What's next buddies? Perhaps they will work in a restaurant they can call the movie: "Chef Buddies" or be in a band!! "Rock Buddies!!" (:
Whatever they do with it, or wherever these pups go, I know my kids will not be far, watching them with tunnel vision.

What Gigi had to say:
"When I first started watching the movie I thought it was going to be a good movie, and I was right! It was! In the movie, 2 aliens, one bad- and one good fighting over five rings. These rings are not just any old rings though. If the dogs wear them they get special powers. You know: to fly, being lightning fast, being super stretchy, among other powers!
***SPOILER ALERT***When the good alien crashes on Earth he uses the life form of a dog and he meets a little boy and they partner up for a while. They have been searching for the rings for a long time too. They find the rings on the Buddies and they are trapped in a burning building!! What to do? Well, the alien dog save the buddies. That's how they get on the news. In the end, the puppies have the powers forever, because the rings/collars are theirs
My favorite part is: When the Princess lands on Earth and the alien dog turns back into an alien. The Princess Alien and the alien go back to their planet.. that part was super cool! This movie is so funny.
My favorite character is Rosebud because she's got spunk!!!"
