Rock Dog is an animated comedy film from 2016 directed by Ash Brannon. The movie is inspired by the graphic novel Tibetan Rock Dog, authored by Zheng Jun. It features an impressive cast of voice actors, including Luke Wilson as Bodi, the lead character, Eddie Izzard as Angus Scattergood, and J.K. Simmons as Khampa. The story follows a young Tibetan Mastiff named Bodi, who dreams of becoming a famous musician despite his family's generation-old guarding duty of a peaceful village.

The movie opens with Bodi struggling to stay focused on his duties as a guard dog, finding solace in the music of a rock band called "Rock 'n' Roll Park." Bodi is particularly fond of the band's lead vocalist and guitarist Angus Scattergood, who is a famous and reclusive musician. Bodi's devotion to music becomes stronger as he discovers Angus's music and starts dreaming of becoming a musician just like him.

When a radio falls from the sky on Bodi's watch, he hears about a music contest happening in the city, where the winner gets to perform alongside Angus. Seeing this as an opportunity to pursue his dream, Bodi decides to leave the village and follow his passion for music.

During his journey, Bodi faces several obstacles, including a pack of wild wolves led by Linnux, who wants to destroy the village by stealing the sheep. However, Bodi's family and the village are eventually able to fend off the wolves, and Bodi continues his journey to the city.

In the city, Bodi meets an energetic and ambitious fox named Darma, who helps him find Angus Scattergood. However, when they finally meet, Bodi discovers that Angus is not the kind of musician he thought he was. Angus is suffering from writer's block and has been living a life of disappointment, with no inspiration to create new music.

Bodi, determined to help Angus overcome his writer's block, teams up with him to create a new hit song. Together, they produce a song inspired by the sights and sounds of the city and Bodi's village. Through their collaboration, Angus rediscovers his love for music, and Bodi learns to find his musical voice.

The climax of the movie centers around the music contest, where Bodi and Angus perform their new song "Glorious" in front of thousands of people. Will Bodi be able to win the contest and fulfill his dream of becoming a famous musician? You'll have to watch the movie to find out.

Overall, Rock Dog is a heartwarming movie that celebrates the power of music and the importance of chasing one's dreams. The film's themes of family, friendship, and perseverance are important lessons that will resonate with audiences of all ages.
