Losing a pet is never an easy topic to cover with kids, but the movie Robo-Dog Airborne! The movie is now on DVD from Lionsgate and is the sequel to the original Robo-Dog from 2015. After Tyler’s dog dies, his dad creates a new robot dog for him that can do so much more than any other dog he could get. But what happens when Robo-Dog loses his memory? The movie explores the way the family gets Robo-Dog back and the new powers the dog has.
We were sent a copy of Robo-Dog: Airborne to watch and enjoy – and we knew it would be a great movie for kids before we even put it in the DVD player. While the first movie dealt with the loss of a beloved pet, the new movie brings a fun inspirational spin on the story and makes Robo-Dog even more part of the family. The movie has received the Dove Family Seal of Approval, meaning that it is safe for kids of all ages. It does have a bit of conflict, but nothing that would be considered too scary or could frighten kids as they watched it. We love that we can trust the family friendly films with this approval and not be stuck watching animated films all day. The story overall is cute and one kids can relate to and will enjoy.
The Robo-Dog: Airborne DVD is available now, has a total run time of 88 minutes and is rated G.
Meet Robo-Dog, the world’s coolest pet. He can run super-fast, grow a bionic arm, talk, and even fly! After creating the perfect pooch for his son Tyler, genius dad Tom (Patrick Muldoon, “Days of Our Lives”) gets called away. When Tyler and his wacky nerd friend Barry head off to a science fair, Robo-Dog runs away and has his memory chip erased. After starting a new life with a computer whiz and his adorable daughter, will this high-tech terrier ever find his way home to his rightful master?
