We know Disney hasn’t made any Air Bud-related movies for at least four years now, but we’re hoping this will give its executives the spark of inspiration they need to continue the series.
What we’re presenting to you is a golden retriever playing fetch. On an ice rink. With a police officer before a game between the Washington Capitals and Arizona Coyotes on Sunday.
Don’t you dare tell us this is unenjoyable.
Maybe the Capitals and the Coyotes game was great, but a direct-to-DVD release of this cute dog chasing a puck up and down the rink in a loop for 90 minutes sounds better, we daresay.
There’s dramatic tension as the dog tries to find its footing on the slippery ice, stumbling to pick up the puck, or occasionally sliding into the advertising boards.
Fine, we can fit in a few bumbling baddies too.
May we suggest as a working title, Air Bud: Goaltender Retriever? We’ll be waiting for your call, Disney executives.
