The Legend of Johnny Canuck - Part 2

Johnny Canuck is back. I’m not sure about you, but I’ve been awaiting the fifth short film in the My Name Is Johnny Canuck series with bated breath.

The new short film will debut Saturday night before the Vancouver Canucks, sporting special Vancouver Millionaires jerseys to honour the 1915 Stanley Cup champion team, take on the Detroit Red Wings at Rogers Arena.

I was lucky enough to see a rough cut of the film and it’s amazing, as they’ve all been. This one is truly unique though, it’s got a lot of heart and brings the story of Johnny Canuck full circle.

Johnny himself is quite a swell guy. How swell you ask? Well he cut an exclusive teaser trailer just for Fort Nucks, sent in behind the scenes photos AND he’ll be debuting the short film on Canucks.com as soon as it’s shown in arena Saturday night.

Here’s what he had to say about his latest piece of brilliance:

In this HD short film we flashback into Johnny Canuck’s oldest memory, on an outing with his father. On their journey, we discover the moment he finds his calling as a lumberjack, to learning his destiny as a man.

A new character emerges in “The Millionaire”, as we follow his life story from having it all to being marooned of his riches.

The My Name Is Johnny Canuck film series reinvented the historical Johnny Canuck character as a gritty and real personification of the 140 year old icon.

Enjoy your exclusive first look.
