‘Togo’ Staring Willem Defoe To Premiere on Disney+ On December 20th
This week, Disney+ has released the exciting details about a new film based on a true story called ‘Togo.” The film stars Willem Defoe and is slated to appear on the Disney+ streaming network beginning on December 20th. Yesterday, Walt Disney Studios released the stunning poster for the film which you can check out below.
In addition, the first full-length trailer for the film dropped this morning. Let’s take a look:
The official synopsis for Togo is as follows:
When a deadly epidemic strikes the town of Nome, Alaska, the only cure is more than 600 miles away, the town looks to champion dogsled trainer Leonhard Seppala (Willem Dafoe) to help transport an antitoxin serum. Seppala turns to Togo, an unassuming, undersized and aging Siberian husky to be his lead. This wife (played by Julianne Nicholson) has championed Togo since his days as a mischievous puppy who could dig himself out of any situation literally and figuratively and Seppala, having observed Togo’s loyalty and tenacious spirit knows Togo offers his only chance of surviving the mission. Undaunted by the massive storm, Seppala and Togo set out on the deadliest leg of what becomes a larger relay involving multiple mushers and gale-force winds and a wind chill factor dipping to 70 degrees below zero with little to no visibility. It is a harrowing journey on which Togo saves Seppala from certain death, causing the veteran musher to grasp the depth and intensity of his feelings for his lead dog, even as he risks running him to his death. They complete the task in time with Togo going down in history as one of the greatest sled dogs ever, but it is this unbreakable bond between man and dog which is the ultimate prize—and which truly saves Seppala.
This untold true story starring four-time Oscar® nominee Willem Dafoe as Leonhard Seppala, “Togo” is directed by Ericson Core and written by Tom Flynn and produced by Kim Zubick, with Douglas S. Jones serving as executive producer. The film also stars Christopher Heyerdahl, Richard Dormer, Michael Greyeyes, Michael McElhatton and Michael Gaston.
