What Is The Plot Of Strays?
If you have made your guess about what you think Strays is going to be about, we are here to let you know whether you were right or wrong. Before we dive into our thoughts about the plot and any specific details, let us take a look at the official synopsis provided by Universal Pictures:
“When Reggie, a naïve, relentlessly optimistic Border Terrier, is abandoned on the mean city streets by his lowlife owner, Doug, Reggie is certain that his beloved owner would never leave him on purpose. But once Reggie falls in with a fast-talking, foul-mouthed Boston Terrier named Bug, a stray who loves his freedom and believes that owners are for suckers, Reggie finally realizes he was in a toxic relationship and begins to see Doug for the heartless sleazeball that he is.
Determined to seek revenge, Reggie, Bug, and Bug’s pals—Maggie, a smart Australian Shepherd who has been sidelined by her owner’s new puppy, and Hunter, an anxious Great Dane who’s stressed out by his work as an emotional support animal—together hatch a plan and embark on an epic adventure to help Reggie find his way home … and make Doug pay by biting off the appendage he loves the most.”
Thanks to this synopsis by Universal Pictures, we have a good idea about what we can expect from Strays and its lead character, Reggie, a dog. Most recently, we have been so used to movies like Dog Gone, where the owners would do just about anything to save their dogs, even risk their own lives, but Strays is the complete opposite. In this movie, Doug doesn’t care about his dog in the slightest and all Reggie wants to do is spend more time with Doug.
When Doug gives up and abandons Reggie, Reggie is exposed to the life of strays and that changes everything. Believe it or not, it is a comedy revenge movie, and it is bound to be hilarious because Reggie and his newfound friends have the perfect plan.
Movies with dogs usually tend to make us shed a tear or two, and that might happen in Strays as well, but only this time, it will be tears of laughter. Brace yourself as we tell you more about the cast of Strays, who are only going to make this movie funnier!
The Cast of Strays
Most of the cast of Strays will have voice-over roles since they are all dogs, but the one human that we will witness is Doug, aka Reggie’s owner. Doug will be played by Will Forte, an American actor, and comedian, best known for his work in the series The Last Man on Earth. Doug might be the only human around, but he won’t be the main character of Strays.
The role of Reggie will be voiced by none other than the very talented and funny Will Ferrell. This man needs no introduction, and 2023 is a good year for him because you will also witness his acting in the much-anticipated movie, Barbie. One of the main stray dogs who will play an important role in shaping Reggie’s stray life will be Bug, who will be voiced by Jamie Foxx. So, despite just their voices being around, Strays is filled with A-list actors and actresses.
Other cast members who will be joining the cast of Strays are Isla Fisher, Randall Park, Josh Gad, Harvey Guillén, and Sofia Vergara amongst several others.
When and Where Can You Watch Strays?
The filming for Strays began in 2021, but since a lot of this movie will be CGI and green screens, post-production would have taken longer, which is why we have all had to wait until 2023 to watch this movie.
While Strays isn’t a part of the February movie roster, you will only have to wait a couple of months before the movie releases. The upcoming adult comedy, Strays is officially slated to release on the 9th of June this year. Strays will be available to watch in theatres, where you can hopefully watch Reggie and his friends succeed in the mission of a lifetime.
Is There a Trailer for Strays?
Right now, the official trailer for Strays might just be the funniest part about the whole movie, and since its release, which wasn’t too long ago, we haven’t been able to stop watching it, and we can guarantee that once you watch it, you will feel the same way. The official trailer for Strays is a lot more than you would expect it to be, as it gives us a good idea about the plot, characters, and the kind of comedy and humor that we will witness in the upcoming movie.
The comment section of Strays is almost conflicted on how they feel about this concept, because on one end it is all extremely funny with a brilliant revenge plan, and on the other end, people are wondering if this will be a hit or a flop, because while it might be a trashy comedy, it is still talking dogs, and that isn’t always easy to pull off. Albeit, we have a whole lot of faith in the movie just based on this hilarious trailer.
Everyone has a lot of thoughts about the upcoming adult comedy Strays, and we have a good feeling about it. In the midst of all the serious movies that are releasing this year, and trying to compete for an Academy Award next year, it will be fun to just kick back and relax, and watch stray dogs take revenge on a reckless owner.
