MILD SPOILERS for “X-Men: Apocalypse”
In “X-Men: Apocalypse,” Quicksilver (Evan Peters) has to evacuate Professor X’s School for Gifted Youngsters, pronto! The super-speedy mutant grabs kids and teachers and whisks them to safety… as well as one French bulldog who’s chowing down on some unguarded pepperoni pizza — still with a slice of pizza gripped firmly in his mouth!
Billed as “Pizza Dog” in the credits, he’s played by Tauntaun, who posed with Peters in this Instagram photo shared by @rpins, who worked on the film.
We love “Star Wars” names for dogs, including “Room” star Jacob Tremblay’s puppy, who he named Rey, after the character played by Daisy Ridley.
One thought on “Meet Tauntaun, the ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Pizza Dog”
I’m still not sure why the “pizza-eating dog” was a necessary addition to this movie, but hey I’m not complaining.
