First Look at Tomm Moore’s New Film, ‘Wolfwalkers’
Cartoon Brew reports: Tomm Moore’s first two features, Cartoon Saloon’s The Secret of Kells
Song of the Sea,
cemented his status as a storyteller and filmmaker of the first class,
while boosting Ireland’s animation scene into the global limelight,
earning him two Oscar nominations and countless other accolades. Now,
with Wolfwalkers, Moore is ready to deliver what he describes as the “final panel of our Irish folklore triptych.”
It’s an idea that Moore has been developing for years. Wolfwalkers
tells the story of 11-year-old Robyn Goodfellow, a young apprentice
hunter who comes to Ireland with her father to wipe out the last pack of
wolves. Her life changes though after she saves a native girl, Mebh,
which leads to her discovery of the Wolfwalkers and transforms her into
the very thing her father is tasked to destroy. As he has done with earlier works, Moore uses Celtic folklore as a
window into our contemporary world. Thematic undercurrents of wilderness
versus order, and man’s impulse to control nature, are key to the world
Embedded below is the film’s ‘concept trailer’. Enjoy!
A little animation I made while my friends where able to talk about the LGBTQ+ community with children from to a special day, to explain them many things about it. I support this all and my friends were happy I could join to animate a little thing for this event ^^
The kids loved it, parents as well, it was amazing!!
We want to share with you a selection of songs from our playlist! While working on the film, we curated a playlist of songs that reminded us of the film in some way. We could feel specific story moments and character traits in these songs, and we’d listen to it as we worked on the storyboards and animation to keep us in the right mood so that we were totally invested in the emotion and tone of whatever moment we were working on.
