    Indiewire –March 2015

    Traditional animation buffs might take note of the feature length Wolfy, The Incredible Secret - just out this week on DVD from Random Media, in partnership with Cinedigm  a story of political machinations, anamorphic animal hierarchy and gypsy fantasy – traditionally hand-drawn with a look that leans far away from photorealism.

    Traditional animation buffs might take note of the feature length Wolfy, The Incredible Secret - just out this week on DVD from Random Media, in partnership with Cinedigm  a story of political machinations, anamorphic animal hierarchy and gypsy fantasy – traditionally hand-drawn with a look that leans far away from photorealism.

    The convoluted English title (French title: “Loulou, l’incroyable secret”) actually refers to quite a few secrets, which unravel as Wolfy, an easygoing wolf, and Tom, his neurotic bunny pal, travel to Wolfenberg to find Wolfy’s mother. A gypsy has told them that she is the true princess as well as the leader of a rebellion against an evil usurper—a manipulative wolf named Lou Andréa.

    If this doesn’t sound like kiddie fodder, it’s not. The look of Wolfy—a cross between Studio Ghibli and those Weston Woods/Scholastic animated films—certainly appears to be the stuff of little ones. Tom, in fact, bears a strong resemblance to Buster Bunny from the popular Arthur cartoon series. For the most part, kids can enjoy it for its visuals and occasional action sequences (and the car, which looks like the one in Thatcher Hurd’s picture book, Art Dog).
