PREVIEW: Wolfwalkers

Wolfwalkers is a new animated film by the studio that produced The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea, and The Breadwinner. The recent release follows a young hunter who comes to Ireland with her father to wipe out the last pack of demonic and evil wolves. However, the young girl saves a wild native girl who introduces her to the world of the Wolfwalkers, the very thing she and her father are sworn to destroy.

I have seen both Song of the Sea and The Breadwinner, and I love the studio’s art style. It’s been a while since I watched The Breadwinner, but I recently saw Song of the Sea and I loved the attention to the backgrounds in addition to the character designs in the film. The art is reminiscent of what you would find in a children’s picture book. From just the trailer, I’m glad to see the art in Wolfwalkers is in the same style and as beautiful as always, and I’m really looking forward to watching the film!

Wolfwalkers is now streaming on Apple TV.
