Cartoon Saloon, the Irish animation studio behind the Academy Award–nominated films The Secret of Kells (2009), Song of the Sea (2014), and The Breadwinner (2017), returns in 2020 with its latest feature, Wolfwalkers. This mythic tale tells the story of a young hunter named Robyn, who, while tracking down a pack of supposedly demonic wolves, is transformed into the very thing she and her father have been seeking to destroy. Filled with exclusive handdrawn sketches, paintings, interviews, and digital renderings that showcase Cartoon Saloon’s unique artistic style, The Art of Wolfwalkers takes fans behind the scenes of one of animation’s most celebrated studios.
Through exclusive commentary and interviews with cast and crew, including Cartoon Saloon cofounder and codirector of Wolfwalkers Tomm Moore and codirector Ross Stewart, renowned animation critic and historian Charles Solomon showcases the craft and skill behind some of the most lovingly detailed and imaginative 2D animation currently being produced.
