When those now-famous domestic pets: American bulldog Chance, golden
retriever Shadow, and Himalayan cat Sassy, were separated from their human
family in the 1993 Disney live-action film classic "Homeward Bound:
The Incredible Journey," audiences the world over took the courageous
animals to their hearts and cheered as they successfully trekked through
the wilderness, against nearly impossible odds, to find their way home.
Now, those lovable quadrupeds once again find themselves on an adventure
of a lifetime as they brave the unknown in the urban jungles of San Francisco,
in Walt Disney Pictures' all-new live-action film for the whole family,
"Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco."
The pets' newest exciting journey begins when their devoted owners, the
Seaver family (ROBERT HAYS, KIM GREIST, VERONICA LAUREN, KEVIN CHEVALIA,
BENJ THALL) decide to take the trio with them on a camping trip to the Canadian
Rockies, rather than risk any possibility of them being separated again.
But when Chance escapes from his kennel at San Francisco International Airport,
his loyal friends Shadow and Sassy band together to follow him. And when
the plane takes off with out them, the companions find themselves wandering
the rough and tumble streets of the city by the bay, searching for a way
back to where they live in the suburbs.
Refusing to let anything stand in the way of their reaching their destination,
the pets are caught up in the most incredible adventure of their lives,
and meet up with a whole new pack of pooches and mutts including Riley,
Pete, Ashcan, Spike, Stokey and Sledge, as well as the beautiful and seductive
Delilah. Unavoidably confronted by danger, fun and excitement at every turn,
Chance, Shadow and Sassy follow their hearts in order to return to the family
who loves them.
