More about WOLFWALKERS:

Since its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2020, Wolfwalkers, adapted from an Irish tale, has received critical acclaim, and received numerous international awards and nominations. Among many other awards, the film won the Best Animated Film Award at the New York film and the Los Angeles Film Critics Awards.

This is the third time that the Irish studio (Cartoon Saloon) and the Luxembourg studio work together on a co-production after “Song of the Sea” and “The Breadwinner”, both nominated for Oscars in 2015 respectively in 2018.

The Luxembourg company produced two-thirds of Wolfwalkers' animation as well as part of the layout and all the color sets of the film. The studio also worked on 3D modeling, colorization, and textures of reference models. In Luxembourg, for over 15 months, about 60 people work on the production of Wolfwalkers. The vast majority were from the Studio 352's historic team – a team with a remarkable number of internationally renowned animation productions for 24 years.

Wolfwalkers is currently available at the movie theaters in Luxembourg (English and French versions) and is available on the Apple TV platform. A Luxembourg version is being dubbed and will be released again this year.
