Last Spring I was offered the opportunity to visit the production set of Russell Madness in Vancouver, Canada. Since I was unable to visit, I sent my good friend Catherine (K1tcatsayz) as my correspondent. Since Russell madness was released on DVD/Blu Ray on March 10, 2015 I can finally share the behind the scenes footage and on set interviews with actors John Ratzenberger, Mason Vale Cotton, David Milchard and the trainer of Crystal the Monkey. It’s amazing to see all of the work that goes into the production of the movie and the fruits of their labor in the final product. If you and your family are already fans of the entire Air Bud series, you are sure to fall in love with the adventures of Russell Madness too!
RUSSELL MADNESS tells the story of Russell, an undersized but big-hearted terrier who dreams of having a family of his own. After running away from his pet store, Russell gets taken in by The Ferraros, a family desperate to revive their grandfather’s pro wrestling arena. That’s when they discover their new pet pooch has incredible wrestling skills. With help from his coach, Hunk, a savvy and hilarious monkey, Russell rockets to the top of the pro wrestling world and becomes a famous sports superstar. But when a dishonest promoter double-crosses the Ferraros, Russell will face his biggest challenge and discover that the strongest tag team is family.
