  • Thank you so much for shouting out Cartoon Saloon, as they deserve more recognition for their efforts in keeping hand-drawn animation alive. I saw Wolfwalkers on AppleTV+ back in April of this year, and I _loved_ it, mostly because I have Irish ancestry, but also because of the amazing animation quality!

  • There’s this detail that I don’t think a lot of people touch on in Wolfwalkers. I love how Robyn develops from being naive to becoming a hardened hero without the movie needing to tell us that she needs to grow up and drop this facade of looking obedient. It’s all done mostly through visuals. SPOILERS When Robyn transforms for the first time, we see her dreaming about a wolf. That wolf then becomes her dream self, with free-flowing hair glowing in light, signifying her true nature as a free spirit. Later, we see Robyn let her hair down before saving Moll and she becomes like her dream self, the person wanting to be freed. It’s as if the movie’s sending us a deeper message about freedom other that just “freedom good”, that being free involves not running away from your true self. They rarely rely on dialogue, and I’m genuinely impressed.

  • I have to agree with #1. I love Wolfwalkers, I agree with everything you said about the film. It is my favorite from Cartoon Saloon yet. That may seem a little bias, because it’s new, but oh well. It also doesn’t hurt that I love wolves, and am glad they are not the bad guys. The only criticism I have for this movie is that it’s on AppleTv+ It’s already bad enough that Cartoon Saloon isn’t a well known studio, but this movie is on an app that some people may not have. No wonder it didn’t get the Oscar, or Golden Globes, etc. I thought Soul was okay, nice story, great visuals, but like you said it was missing that magic that I love from the Disney/Pixar studios. I couldn’t connect with it, I didn’t see a spark. (Pun intended; because of the movie.) I actually enjoyed Over The Moon more than Soul.

  • Soul could've been a masterpiece but it tried to make it entertaining for kids too much. Note: I know it's a Disney movie so it has to be geared towards kids but if they wanted its plot and message to be about life, then they kind of put themselves in that position of contradiction.

  • So like i really want to see Soul but i friggin cry just hearing about it. Idk if my constant existential crisis state can handle it. Also i am so sad i have looked forward to Wolf Walkers for YEARS! And wanted to see it theaters if it came out i was willing to travel for it- and then it came out on Apple TV. Something i don't have and really don't have access to get...

  • Being a kid myself (12, almost 13) I really enjoyed Soul. I thought that the "wandering souls" were a really good depiction of depression or other mental problems like anxiety or schizophrenia. It really hit hard in the gut because it's a tough topic.

  • Out of these I’ve only seen two, Soul and Wolfwalkers. I think that Soul was very over-hyped and a very predictable plot, I think that it got praise 1. For its animation”which don’t get me wrong was very good” and 2. The fact that it was a Pixar movie Then there is Wolfwalkers, this was a beautiful work, between its art style, animation and character design I would say that it is one of the best animated movies in the last few years, and I think that it doesn’t get the kind of mainstream praise that it deserves.

  • There were only two things in WolfWalkers that that stood out as plot holes to me. The end where Mabh and Robyn turned into wolfs in the daylight, was my last plot hole in the movie to point out. Mabh did state that that wolfwalkers are human in day and wolf by night so that doesn't align. Maybe she was wrong about that becuase she is young. There was a second thing in the middle of the film but I forgot what it was. Maybe there is some lore about how the WolfWalker species works, if there is no obvious answer to movie critics on something like the wolf and human stages of a wolfwalker, critics will most likely pass it on as a plot hole. I too feel like that is kind of harsh on the film, since it has to keep audiences engaged and not be just on backstory/lore. So film critics are a bit irrational when it comes to that part of nitpicking. Most movies have lore and should be considered when it comes to pointing out plot holes.

  • Completely disagree on Soul not appealing to kids. People hyperfocus on Joe's arc because of its relatability to most adults but 22 is immensely relatable to kids. I'd recommend watching Cellspex's video for this but basically 22's struggles involve a rigid system that failed them, being told because you don't fit into it perfectly you've failed and you're the problem, being forced to pick a single interest to follow for the rest of your life etc. Again, highly recommend Celly's vid. But yes! Delighted Wolf Walkers is getting attention. I hope our country's animation gets more mainstream attention soon enough

  • While watching Wolfwalkers, I realized that the beginning of the movie is EXTREMELY similar to Kells. Two kids under the care of their overprotective fathers are kept behind the walls of a city, but they sneak out because they're curious and want to prove themselves, they get attacked by wolves, and the leaders of the wolves are both young girls, and they bond together to save the forest from a dark presence. Now, I LOVED Kells and Wolfwalkers, but I was kinda hung up on that for longer than I should have been...

  • Wolf Walkers is fairly depressing, It's about Cromwell's re conquest of Ireland, humans are Scot/English colonizers and wolfs with the native native people. It's controversial to call the event a massacre or a quelling of rebels but it's what the movie tries to portray.

I thought it was an incredible coming-of-age story, and as a lifelong D&D nerd it was really nice to see Pixar give that branch of fantasy some recognition. I loved your video on Soul and if you make more videos on any movies in this list I'd be really interested to see them!
