Now Available on DVD from Cinedigm -- Wolfy: The Incredible Secret (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a review copy from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.




WOLFY, THE INCREDIBLE SECRET 
An Award-Winning Animated Children's Film 
Based on the Popular French Children's Book "LouLou"
Available Nationwide Now on DVD, Digital HD, and On Demand



I wasn't sure what to expect when I watched Wolfy, but I have to say that the girls and I loved it.  The movie is about two lifelong friends, Wolfy who is a wolf, and Tom, who is a rabbit.  They set out on a journey/mission to find Wolfy's mom, who they both thought had passed away when he was little, thus leaving Wolfy an orphan.  But, they found out that she was in principality of Wolfenberg (aka. The Land of the Wolves).  

This movie pulls you in the from the start and has you rooting for Wolfy to find his mom, while also praying that he and Tom stay safe and don't become meals for the wolves when they arrive in Wolfenberg during the middle of the Carne Festival.

During their journey to find Wolfy's mom, the friends encounter a host of characters along the way, who will help them grow and mature.  There are scenes that may be a little much for young viewers, but overall families will just enjoy this new unique story and animation.   

Does Wolfy ever find his mom, or was the gipsy just making up the story that she was alive in Wolfenberg to lure Wolfy and Tom to the festival to become meals?  You will just have to pick up this DVD to find out for yourself. :-)  Enjoy!
