Wolfwalkers tells story of Robyn Goodfellowe, a young apprentice hunter from beyond Ireland’s shores whose hunter father is tasked with destroying the last wolf pack.
Adventuring beyond the city walls, Robyn meets the mysterious girl Mebh, who comes from a people rumored to be able to magically transform into wolves at night. Secrets are revealed as Robyn and her new friend work together to find Mebh’s mother, secrets that that put Robyn at odds with her father and the Lord Protector who brought them to Ireland.
Wolfwalkers is the third film in a trilogy by Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart celebrating the folklore of their native Ireland. Like the Secret of Kells (2009) and Song of the Sea (2014), the film uses their signature “wood block print’ animation style. And while it is a children’s film, parents will be able to see why it was nominated for best animated film at the 2021 Academy awards, Golden Globes and the BAFTAs. — Bryan Skinner
