'Bolt' Trailer Fails to Raise the Amazing Dog Bar

Disney has released a new trailer for Bolt, the Homeward Bound-esque story of the dog star of an action series who must find his way home after coming to the terms with the somber reality that he possesses none of the powers of his on-screen alter ego. I'm curious how this will play in a post-Air Bud world, an existence where children have been exposed to a dog that actually has amazing abilities. I know if I were a kid, I would be super pissed that Bolt probably can't even play that great of a game of baseball, whereas Air Bud is adept at every sport, and has solved several serious crimes. Bolt simply does not measure up to the current standard of awesome dogs.
