It’s Official: Apple Has Picked Up Rights To Cartoon Saloon’s ‘Wolfwalkers’
Quote
It’s official: Apple’s soon-to-launch video service has acquired the rights to Tomm Moore and Cartoon Saloon’s next film Wolfwalkers. The news was confirmed by Deadline on Saturday evening, but Bloomberg first reported the negotiations between Apple and Cartoon Saloon last June.

Moore, who has directed the Oscar-nominated films The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea, will co-direct the film with longtime collaborator Ross Stewart, who was the art director of The Secret of Kells, and co-directed with Moore the Cartoon Saloon sequence in the anthology feature The Prophet. “Since we came up with the idea many years ago it felt natural that we would co-direct this film together,” Moore told Cartoon Brew

Cartoon Saloon's Wolfwalkers Behind-the-Scenes Trailer - Kilkenny, Ireland

Apple buys animated film from Kilkenny-based Cartoon Saloon
Quote
Bloomberg reported in June that Apple was in negotiations with the Kilkenny-based company over the film, which will reportedly star Sean Bean. Cartoon Studio founder Thom Moore confirmed a deal had been agreed in a tweet sent on Monday.

According to IMDB, Wolfwalkers, which is scheduled for release in either 2020 or 2021, tells the story of a young apprentice hunter called Robyn who comes to Ireland with her father to wipe out the last pack of wolves. However, 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.

Annecy: Tomm Moore Reveals Inspirations Behind Cartoon Saloon’s ‘Wolfwalkers’

Quote
One of the most anticipated sessions at Annecy Festival Online this week was the “Work in Progress” look at Cartoon Saloon’s upcoming fall movie Wolfwalkers. Directors Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart and art director Maria Pareja offered a rich collection of character designs, art, animatics and excerpts from the beautifully crafted 2D feature while discussing some of their inspirations, research work and artistic goals for the movie.

The extensively researched film, which will be released by Apple TV+ later this fall, is set in Ireland in the mid-17th century. It tells the story of Robyn, a young English apprentice hunter who comes to Ireland with her father to wipe out the last pack of wolves in the country. Her life changes after she saves a native girl named Mebh, who leads her to the discovery of the wolfwalkers and her transformation into the very thing her father (voiced by Sean Bean) is tasked to destroy.

I thought this was going to be a project like Snow Queen (I'm not saying it was bad).

But, I didn't realize the prestige behind this animation studio. I'm very intrigued and excited for this, however, I hope that it will get a theatrical and a physical media release... I am so sick of subscription only.

WolfWalkers: Song Of The Sea Director Tomm Moore Presents Another Irish Folktale – Exclusive Image

Quote
“Because it had been the capital of the Catholic Confederacy, Cromwell’s aim was to crush Kilkenny,” Moore tells Empire in the new issue. “And he did a good job of it!” If that’s the context, the tale itself is one of shape-shifting wolves, the connection between a wild Irish girl and the English hunter girl who stumbles upon her, whose hunter father Bill who is not only voiced by Sean Bean, but visually modelled after him too. “We drew the dad to look like Sean Bean from his Sharpe era,” Moore tells Empire. “He just looks a bit like a dad to me! We were really delighted when he agreed to do the voice.”

Apple TV+ Drops Teaser Trailer for Tomm Moore’s ‘Wolfwalkers’
Quote
The world will soon again feast on the sumptuous 2D animated mastery of two-time Oscar-nominated director Tomm Moore when his new Apple Original Film, Wolfwalkers, debuts in theatres and Apple TV+ later this year. For now, we only have this teaser trailer; folks taking part in the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival, however, will get access to the film’s North American premiere.

Wolfwalkers, directed by Moore (Song of the Sea, The Secret of Kells) and Ross Stewart (The Secret of Kells), is set in a time of superstition and magic, and tells the story of a young apprentice hunter, Robyn Goodfellowe, who 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.
Wolfwalkers stars Honor Kneafsey, Eva Whitaker, Sean Bean, Simon McBurney, Tommy Tiernan, Jon Kenny, John Morton, and Maria Doyle Kennedy. It’s produced by Paul Young, Nora Twomey, Tomm Moore and Stéphan Roelants, from a screenplay by Will Collins. The film is co-produced by the award-winning animation studios Cartoon Saloon (Oscar and Golden Globe nominee, The Breadwinner) and Melusine Productions (Oscar nominee Ernest & Celestine); it will stream globally on Apple TV+ following its theatrical run.

Wolfwalkers at 45th Toronto International Film Festival

Quote
The Oscar-nominated animation studio behind The Secret of the Kells returns with the tale of a magical, unlikely friendship between two girls in 17th-century Ireland.
The Oscar-nominated animation studio behind the TIFF selections The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea, and The Breadwinner returns with the tale of an unlikely — and magical — friendship between two girls in 17th-century Ireland.

Wolfwalkers opens during Oliver Cromwell’s brutal colonization of Ireland, in the county of Kilkenny, which has fallen to English settlers after a bloody siege. On Cromwell’s orders, a young apprentice hunter, Robyn Goodfellowe (voiced by Honor Kneafsey), and her father, Bill (Game of Thrones’ Sean Bean), are sent from England to track and kill the last of the wolves that live in woods outside the city walls. Adventurous and rebellious, Robyn sneaks into the woods and discovers a world unlike any she’s ever known. There she meets Mebh (Eva Whittaker), a wild girl who was raised by wolves, and through her unique new friend begins to realize it’s not the forest that should be feared, but the “townies.” But, as she grows closer to the forest world, her relationship with her father is put to the test, as Robyn herself becomes one of the very things he is ordered to obliterate.

The final instalment in directors Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart’s “Irish folklore trilogy” is a stunning testament to their singular animation style and storytelling skills. With visual references to pre-Celtic imagery and Studio Ghibli alike — and some catchy songs — Wolfwalkers is an instant classic for all ages.

TIFF 2020: How Hand-Crafted Animation Turned ‘Wolfwalkers’ into an Irish Folklore Tour de Force
Quote
With “Wolfwalkers,” Cartoon Saloon has achieved a hand-animated tour de force in completing its Irish folklore trilogy, led by Oscar-nominated director Tomm Moore (“Song of the Sea,” “The Secret of Kells”) and art director-turned director Ross Stewart. The mystical adventure about two young girls saving the hunted wolf population of Kilkenny (home of Cartoon Saloon) in the mid-17th century offers a compelling story about female empowerment and animal rights, told with a bold visual aesthetic. The Oscar contender from Apple makes its North American premiere at TIFF this Saturday followed by a theatrical run by GKids and streaming on Apple TV+ later this year.

Moore had great ambitions and twice the budget on “Wolfwalkers,” and he entrusted more responsibility to Stewart after his enormous visual contributions to “Song of the Sea” and “The Secret of Kells.” This was important in designing the two contrasting worlds of the town (rigid line work) and forest (warm curves), which carried over into the character designs as well. Whereas Robyn, Mebh, and the wolves are drawn as round and loose, Robyn’s father and the rest of the townspeople are more solid and square.

Cartoon Saloon to home-premiere Wolfwalkers at Kilkenny Animated
Quote
Local audiences will get their first chance to see the exciting new Cartoon Saloon film next month during the Kilkenny Animated festival.

Wolfwalkers had it’s world premiere to huge critical acclaim over the weekend as part of the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival.

The annual festival of local & global animation is hosted every year by the four-time Oscar-nominated local studio.

This year it’s on from from October 2nd to 4th as Co-director Tom Moore outlines “Our home town premiere’s going to be a screening & it’ll be in stages, only 50 people at a time can go in, but we’re going to be screening it non-stop for a couple of days over the festival so hopefully people will get a chance to see it then ahead of the release on the 13 of October but it’ll be in the cinemas from 30 October right through the month of November so I’m hoping that everyone will get a chance to get out and get off their couch & go see it in the cinema and in a cinema experience”.

Co-Director Ross Stewart says “The only kindof feedback that we could see was from like a live feed on Twitter, people sharing their opinions on it but thankfully everyone has, well nearly everyone, has very positive reviews but yeah it is a shame to not have a premiere in a big building where you can guage the audiences response in live time they laugh at the jokes or cry at the sad parts”.

Ross adds that the star-studded cast also includes loads of Kilkenny locals noting “For the actual cast itself because we had a few stars like Sean Bean in there we wanted to get in, for the Kilkenny people, we wanted to get real people who lived in Kilkenny with the proper accent and that so all of the crowds and all of the kids, all of the the tertiary or secondary characters, they’re all Kilkenny people or people that have a good Kilkenny accent so it’s authentic that way”.

I think I may figured out a major twist for the Wolfwalkers movie based on the trailer. I think the Sean Bean dad in the movie is also a wolfwalker, as he and the big grey-black wolf  defending the Robyn girl (as a wolf) at the end both have same eye color (and a similar brow?).
