Storyline

Half wolf Balto has a litter with his full husky wife. Most puppies resemble her and are easily adopted by the Wild West villagers. Only one daughter, which has his lupine traits, must be raised by them and devoted goose Boris. She also proves a free-spirited rebel, drawn to the wild. Balto spares no effort to protect his stubborn, near-adult pup, which leads to both of them confronting and joining wise old 'wolf shaman' Nava's troop, which needs to make hard choices, requiring a strapping younger leader.

Balto: I'll go.
Aleu: No. You don't belong here. You belong home, with my mother. But I *do* belong here. It's my destiny.
Nava the Wolf Shaman: [to Balto] Aniu told me it would be the one who is wolf but does not know. I believed it was you, but I was wrong. It is your daughter.
Balto: Are you sure?
Aleu: [nods]
Balto: It's just... so hard to let my baby go.
Aleu: Papa, I'm not your... okay. So I'll always be your baby. Goodbye, papa. Tell mom... I've finally found my home.

Rough, but with lots of heart.
16 February 2002 | by (Columbia, SC) – See all my reviews

I felt this film was kinda like Balto himself--a bit rough around the edges, but with a heart of gold underneath. I didn't care for Boris, Mu(c)k and Lu(c)k this time around, but Maurice LaMarche, Lacey Chabert and Mark Hamill were good as Balto, Aleu and Niju. However, the BEST piece of casting was David Carradine as Nava...he was WONDERFUL. The songs were generally well-done, and "Taking You Home" was beautiful. I really thought the ending of the movie was well-done: hopeful and leaving you with a satisfying feeling without being a traditional "happy ending."

So I have to say I still like the original a bit more, but this film was by no means a failure.
