“Far and away the best animated film of the year…a lushly animated storybook brought to life”

– David Ehrlich, IndieWire

About the film:

The fourth Academy Award-nominated feature from the Irish animation studio, and the third film in the lauded Irish folklore trilogy.

Before earning a nomination for Best Animated Feature at the 93rd Academy Awards, Wolfwalkers premiered at Toronto International Film Festival and won the Audience Award for narrative feature at AFI Fest.

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, the very thing her father seeks to destroy.

Following the Academy Award-nominated The Secret of Kells (2009) and Song of the Sea (2014), this final installment in Tomm Moore’s gorgeous Irish folklore trilogy blends magic and history in a tale for all ages.
