Wolfwalkers Wolfwalkers

Tomm Moore, Ross Stewart / Ireland, Luxembourg / 2020 / 100 min / Slovene subtitles, English / 8+

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.

Directed by: Tomm Moore, Ross Stewart, Written by: Will Collins, Artistic direction: Ross Stewart, Tomm Moore, Maria Pareja, Editing: Richie Cody, Darren Holmes a.c.e., Darragh Byrne, Alan Slattery, Music: Bruno Coulais, Kila, Sound Design: Alexandre Fleurant, Voices: Honor Kneafsey, Eva Whittaker, Sean Bean, Simon McBurney, Tommy Tiernan, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Jon Kenny, John Morton, Nora Twomey, Oliver McGrath, Paul Young, Producers: Paul Young, Nora Twomey, Tomm Moore, Stéphan Roelants, Production: Cartoon Saloon, Dentsu Inc., Distribution: Cartoon Saloon



While exploring the forbidden lands outside the city walls, Robyn befriends a free-spirited girl, Mebh, a member of a mysterious tribe rumoured 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.

I don’t know where we found the name ‘wolfwalkers,’ they were originally known as the ‘man wolves of Ossory.’ Ossory [now modern-day County Kilkenny] is an old name for the area we grew up in, and where our studio is now. The sad story is that the wolves were completely wiped out, and with that a lot of the folklore died off too. We thought it was nice to revitalize and reimagine the stories.

2D animation can sometimes look like it still has the limitations of the 1940s, where it looks like cell painted characters on watercolor backgrounds rather than all the things that it can be. I think for animation fans it’s going to be a celebration of what hand drawn animation can do and really pushing the hand drawn medium as a valid medium in itself as opposed to something you start to see CG movies now trying to replicate. We’re trying to show that hand drawn can still do something that CGI can’t.

Very early on, we knew that the town had to represent a cage for Robyn because the Lord Protector had a tight rule over society. And so we looked at the old woodblock prints of the 1600s with black lines and aggressive mark making and lots of horizontals and verticals. And it seemed appropriate to merge that into the style of the town. In contrast to that, the forest had to be free and energetic in outlook. The forest had to embody that wild energy that the wolves have.
