The mail in the north used to be delivered by dogsled, but the success of airplane delivery leaves Balto and the other sled dogs feeling neglected. However, when a delivery plane crashes on a mountain side, the sled dogs get the opportunity to show their worth. This story also prominently features Balto's son, Kodi, who was among the puppy litter that we met in Balto II: Wolf Quest. Written by
The black-and-white birds that get out of the way of Duke's plane when he's flying are Arctic terns. See more »
At multiple points in the movie, a bush plane can be seen being used to carry mail. Bush planes in the 1920s were not used for deliveries, medicine, or mail. They were used for surveys and firefighting and were popularized after World War II. Before that, they were not a common sight. Also, bush planes were concentrated in Canada and weren't used commercially in Alaska until the 1940s. See more »
"Everything Flies" singer:
The wind across the water/And clouds across the skies/The music in the echo/Of the eagle as she cries/The winter light at sunset/The full moon on the rise/Everything, everything flies./A mother's prayers to heaven/A young boy's paper kite/The breeze that brings the morning/A comet through the night/Aurora borealis/As it sweeps across the skies/Everything, everything flies./Time and stars and innocence/Childhood's waking dream/The spark that leaves a dying fire/The trout that breaks the stream/...

The original Balto was amazing. A much-loved favourite of mine. I also enjoyed Balto II - Wolf Quest. But then came Balto III - Wings of Change. First impressions, poor animation with computer animated elements. None of the characters had their original voices - nor did they even sound like the originals. Whoever thought up Stella the Goose should be sued. She is an unnecessary character who, in my mind, ruins the entire film. I do like Kodi, Balto's son in this film. He is given a lovely character and makes the film actually worth watching. No mention is given to Aleu though? All in all, this is a poor ending to the Balto sequels and was most probably even less popular than poor Balto was originally. An addition to a Balto fans collection but otherwise, do not waste your money.
