October 12, 2018 — Bryce Dallas Howard Voices a Sweet Puppy in ‘Emotional’ Adventure
“We saw A Dog’s Purpose before our cat died, and we intentionally watched it with our kids and it really, really helped,” the actress says. While the mother of two says she was “a wreck” during that film, she reveals A Dog’s Way Home is much more of an “adventure” film.”
While the mother of two says she was “a wreck” during that film, she reveals A Dog’s Way Home is much more of an “adventure” film. “With this movie, it’s really emotional and it gets you,” she says. “But I would say it’s fun. There’s a lot of fun, there’s a lot of adventure. The movie is driven by the drive of this dog to find her way home and be reunited with her person. I think it’s really appropriate for younger kids.”
They’re so excited and I think in particular they’re so excited because there are incredible relationships between animals in this film,” she says. “Bella was raised by a cat and in turn, she ends up being best friends with a cougar! [W.] Bruce Cameron writes about animals and [their] relationships with human beings. It genuinely acknowledges the emotion of it and how intense it is.”
“So, this is an incredible opportunity. I’m so grateful,” she adds.

October 12, 2018 — Bryce Dallas Howard Says Kids ‘Don’t Like It When I Travel’
“They don’t like it when I travel for work,” Howard, who is promoting her upcoming film A Dog’s Way Home, tells PEOPLE. “But when I say that it’s something like this, A Dog’s Way Home, it’s very helpful.” Howard had to travel to voice her new character, a puppy named Bella, who is determined to find her way home after getting lost from her owner. “It’s a very powerful negotiating tool,” she adds. “I’ll say, ‘I’m going to be gone for a week, I’m recording a voice.’ And they’re like, ‘Oh, how cute! A puppy!’ Like, ‘Okay, cool!’ “
Since her children are still young, Howard says they haven’t been able to watch all of her films. Despite that, she’s made an effort to make films they’ll both enjoy. “They have seen Pete’s Dragon. Theo has since watched Jurassic World, one and two,” she says. “Beatrice hasn’t yet. This will actually be the second movie of mine that she’s able to watch,” Howard continues, referring to A Dog’s Way Home.
Howard comes from a famous family deeply entrenched in Hollywood — her father is the director Ron Howard, who recently directed Solo: A Star Wars Story. While both are famous, including her husband of 12 years, actor Seth Gabel, Howard says her kids aren’t affected by their family background. “It’s interesting because I got to experience such a similar childhood to the one my kids are experiencing,” she says. “There wasn’t a ‘my parent is famous conversation.’ When you see somebody every single day, you don’t clock those changes. Because I was raised in the environment of making movies and stuff that wasn’t a huge part of my thinking all the time. I get the sense that it’s the same with my kids,” Howard continues. “There haven’t really been conversations much, at all. My parents exposed us to the job side [of making films] but didn’t expose us to the publicity side. My dad is a great example of how to live life being recognizable. Life isn’t any different, he just walks a little faster,” she adds.
