I’ve been a huge fan of James Bowen and his Street Cat Named Bob ever since the first book was published in 2012. This rags to riches story of an orange cat changing James Bowen’s life from down on his luck drug addict to bestselling author touched my heart in a big way, and I’ve been following the pair ever since. Watching the journey of these two soul mates has been pure joy.

This November, the story of James and Bob is coming to the big screen. James will be played by British actor Luke Treadaway, and Bob will play himself. James was actively involved in the making of the movie as Bob’s “handler,” and will be making a cameo appearance.

Today, I’d love to share two trailers with you.

This is the official trailer, and if I wasn’t excited about this movie before, now I really can’t wait to see it.

The second video offers some commentary by director Roger Mainwood and James himself.

The movie’s release date is November 4 for the UK and November 18 for the US.
