Disney+ has released the official trailer and poster for “Togo,” and original feature starring Oscar-nominee Willem Dafoe and Julianne Nicholson that will premiere on the streaming service on December 20th.
Togo was a sled dog who, in 1925, helped prevent a diphtheria epidemic in Alaska by delivering an antitoxin serum through the punishing elements. Dafoe plays Leonhard Seppala, a veteran dogsled trainer and musher (and 1932 Olympian), who chooses Togo to lead the run, in spite of the dog’s old age and small size.
Ericson Core helms the period family adventure which is one of the ten original films the service plans annually.
