Cartoon Saloon's Wolfwalkers.
Apple TV has released a first-look trailer for Wolfwalkers, Cartoon Saloon’s third animated feature from two-time Academy Award-nominee Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea) and Ross Stewart.

BFI London Film Festival has announced that the film will have a virtual premiere during its festival, which runs from October 7th-18th. The film has previously been announced to feature at the 45th Toronto International Film Festival later this month.

Wolfwalkers follows Robyn Goodfellowe, a young apprentice hunter who journeys to Ireland with her father in a time of superstition and magic 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 Apple Original film, which is a co-production between Cartoon Saloon and Melusine Productions, is directed by Moore and Stewart and written by Will Collins (Song of the Sea). Paul Young, Nora Twomey, Moore and Stéphan Roelants serve as producers. It follows Moore’s two prior Oscar-nominated animated features, The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea, as well as Cartoon Saloon’s Oscar-nominated The Breadwinner, the last two of which also made their North American premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival. 

Wolfwalkers will stream around the world on Apple TV+ following its theatrical run. GKIDS will serve as the theatrical distribution partner in North America. Wildcard Distribution will serve as the theatrical distributor for the film in Ireland and the UK, Child Film will serves as the theatrical distribution partner in Japan, Haute et Court holds the theatrical distribution rights to the film in France, and Value & Power Culture Communications holds rights for China.

An official Ireland-Luxembourg co-production, Wolfwalkers was produced with the participation of Value & Power Culture Communications Co, Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland, Film Fund Luxembourg, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, RTÉ, Canal +, OCS and the Pole Image Magelis, Charente Region Fund.
