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.

When the human picks up the puppy, they are now on the right side. The following shot with Aleu waving goodbye shows her on the left again. See more »

Balto: This has gone too far, Aleu, and it isn't our battle.
Aleu: But papa, I saw caribou!
Balto: Look, this could get very dangerous. Despite my dreams or anything else, I will not put you in any danger.
Aleu: But this isn't just about us anymore, papa. This is about something bigger. Don't you see? We're supposed to help them. I'm sorry, but whether I stay or go should be my decision.
Balto: That wind is a sign that winter's coming early. Your mother will be worried sick. We both leave in the morning.

Beautiful.
31 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though it doesn't hold up to the wonderful original Balto, this is one of the very few animated film sequels that didn't totally make me gag. The storyline is completely different (thankfully not going the 'Oh, no! Another epidemic!' route one would expect) and the entire movie takes a Native American twist, focusing less of dog-sleds and more on the Wolf roots of both Balto and his daughter, Aleu. The songs are touching and beautiful, my favorites being "Taking You Home" and "Who You Really Are". "Taking You Home" is probably the only song I've ever heard from an animated film that has ever made me cry- and it take a lot to make me cry.

This film, combined with the original Balto film, would be a wonderful little gift pack for anyone who's a fan.
