Jason Momoa’s real-life pet pig didn’t end up making it to the premiere of “Slumberland.”
“Oh, he’s in Hawaii! He’s a wild boar, so I couldn’t bring him with me,” said Momoa, who instead posed on the red carpet with a stuffed animal. “I think it would’ve been pretty gnarly, though.”
In “Slumberland,” Momoa plays an eccentric outlaw named Flip, who guides young orphan (Marlow Barkley) and her toy-pig-turned-real through a world of dreams.
Momoa revealed earlier this month that he had adopted a pig after filming with it.
“This is why I can’t work with animals. I want to bring them home. Wild and feral like his pops,” he wrote on Instagram.
Momoa was at last updating picking a name for his new pet – torn between Lau Lau and Manapua.
He also has a donkey and two half wolves.
“Slumberland” will stream on Netflix starting on November 18.
