Robyn Goodfellowe, a young apprentice to her wolf-hunter father Bill, travels with him to Ireland for participating in a wolf hunt. Staying in the town of Kilkenny, Robyn comes across the fiercely independent Mebh, a girl belonging to a tribe of “wolfwalkers” who can shapeshift from human form to the form of a wolf. As Robyn spends time with Mebh, she sets out with her to search for Mebh's mother. At the same time, she discovers her own identity as a wolfwalker and uncovers the threat to the environment and the woods from the wolf hunt organized by the sinister Lord Cromwell. What does Robyn do?
Set to a reworked version of AURORA's 2016 hit track “Running With The Wolves”, the trailer is a tribute to Irish folklore and features various scenes showing Robyn and Mebh's growing friendship, Robyn's attempts to come to terms with her identity as a wolfwalker, and her attempts to save the woods against the onslaught of Oliver Cromwell and the wolf-hunters.
Directed by Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart, the film features the voices of Honor Kneafsey, Eva Whittaker, Sean Bean, Simon McBurney and others.
Wolfwalkers premieres worldwide on December 11, 2020 only on Apple TV+.
