Appearing on the cover of Disney Twenty Three magazine, sent out to members of the Disney fan club, are Monte and Rose, rescue dogs plucked from obscurity to headline the movie.

The entire cast of dogs appearing in the film were rescued from shelters and adopted by cast and crew upon completion of filming.

Theroux and Thompson have been joined by an all-star cast of actors also lending their voices, including Janelle Monae, Ashley Jensen, Benedict Wong and Sam Elliott.

Monae has also contributed three original songs to the film, including a far less racist version of the notorious “Siamese Cat Song” from the original movie.
