Wolfwalkers 9/8/2020

One of my favorite animation studios, Cartoon Saloon, the makers of The Secret of KellsSong of the Sea, and The Breadwinner, has a new animated feature coming to Apple TV+ later this year: Wolfwalkers.

From the synopsis:

In a time of superstition and magic, a young apprentice hunter, Robyn Goodfellowe, journeys to Ireland with her father to wipe out the last wolf pack. While exploring the forbidden lands outside the city walls, Robyn befriends a free-spirited girl, Mebh, a member of a mysterious tribe rumored to have the ability to transform into wolves by night. As they search for Mebh’s missing mother, Robyn uncovers a secret that draws her further into the enchanted world of the Wolfwalkers and risks turning into the very thing her father is tasked to destroy.

The trailer for the film (via YouTube) is great.
