The movie Valiant is about a regular pigeon who wants to become a hero and join the Royal Homing Pigeon Service. After a group of British war pigeons carrying important information are killed, with the exception of one of them who was captured, a faction of the Royal Homing Pigeon Service sets up a recruiting station to look for and train new recruits. Valiant, played by Ewan McGregor, signs up along with a few other unlikely heroes. Their training is interrupted, however, when the recruits are told they need to go on a mission to France. The rookie recruits are then forced to test their newly-acquired skills as they evade capture, participate in chases and dodge enemy fire. The film Valiant is an homage to the carrier pigeons used by the Allies during World War Two. It is set in 1944 Europe, and the events and characters in the story parallel the events and characters in the actual war. The villians are similar to the Nazis, although the Nazis are not directly mentioned, and many historically accurate facts are used in the movie. The film features actors such as Ewan McGregor, Hugh Laurie, Tim Curry and Ricky Gervais.
