Disney+ has released a new trailer for its upcoming original movie Togo, starring Willem Dafoe and his affable, titular sled dog. The film, written by Tom Flynn and directed by Ericson Core, is based on the true story of a 1925 serum run to Nome, Alaska. The story originally inspired the 1995 animated film Balto, except this time we focus on Dafoe as champion dogsled trainer Leonhard Seppala who takes in a mischievous Siberian husky that proves itself to lead his dogsled team.

However, once a deadly epidemic strikes Nome, Leonhard and the now-aging Togo are tasked with risking death to retrieve the cure from 600 miles away. The film marks the first truly cinematic original film to come from the Disney+ streaming service. It also features a big name like Dafoe as its lead character, making it stand out from the original content currently on the platform, such as the live-action adaptation of Lady and the Tramp.

Check out the official trailer and poster for Togo above and below, then stream the film later this month on December 20.
