Adapted from the beloved literary classic, Twentieth Century Studio's The Call of the Wild vividly brings to the screen the story of Buck, a big-hearted dog whose blissful domestic life is turned upside down when he is suddenly uprooted from his Californian home and transported to the exotic wilds of the Canadian Yukon during the Gold Rush of the 1980's.

As the newest rookie on a mail delivery dog led sled team - and later its leader - Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime, ultimately finding his true place in the world and becoming his own master.

As a live-action/animation hybrid, The Call of the Wild employs cutting edge visual effect and animation technology in order to render the animals in the film as fully photorealistic - and emotionally authentic - characters.
