The English version of the sequel is directed by Mike Disa (Postman Pat: The Movie, Hoodwinked Too!).
The all-star cast includes popstar Ashlee Simpson and Alicia Silverstone (Clueless). Space Dogs 2: Adventures to the Moon follows the out-of-this-world adventure of a pup astronaut named Pushok as he goes on a mission to find his father who’s trapped on the moon.
