The book series was about Clifford, a giant red dog and his owner, a young girl (Emily Elizabeth) that falls in love with the pup.

At one point in the trailer you hear Emily Elizabeth (Darby Camp) ask, “How big is he going to get?” She then gets the response, “That depends on how much you love him.”
Collider was able to get an interview with the Producer and Director of the film. The Director, Walt Becker, explained what drew him to the character stating,
“For me, what attracted me to the character, besides it being a dog, was that it’s something that I’d read my kids and was my first. It seems like it’s everybody’s first book. It was just this incredible family adventure movie with a slightly magical creature affecting everybody in a real world city, like New York.”
The Director and Producer also spoke on the challenges they came across when trying to create the big red dog, read more here.
