Star Movies to air Eight Below


MUMBAI: Star Movies will present the incredible friendship between eight amazing sled dogs and their guide in the film Eight Below.

A Walt Disney Pictures film, directed by Frank Marshall and written by David DiGilio, this touching film is based on the 1983 hit movie Nankyoku Monogatari. The film will be telecast on 27 July at 9 pm.

In the Antarctic, after an expedition with Dr. Davis McClaren (Bruce Greenwood), the sled dog trainer Jerry Shepherd (Paul Walker) has to leave the polar base with his colleagues due to the proximity of a heavy snowstorm. He ties his dogs to be rescued after, but the mission is called-off and the dogs are left alone at their own fortune.

For six months, Jerry tries to find a sponsor for a rescue mission while his dogs fight for survival. Driven by an unwavering bond and tremendous courage, Jerry must make an incredible journey to reunite with his team. The film is inspired by the events of a 1957 Japanese expedition to the Antarctic.
