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.

Wasn't as emotionally engaging, but visually decent.
20 November 2017 | by Animany94See all my reviews

There are some really beautiful scenes in Balto: Wolf Quest, and the film overall exceeded my expectations, but it still has its problems. Let's start with the good stuff.

Visually, the film is actually quite pleasing to the eye with dramatic angles and quickly moving in Balto's really cool dream sequence and with vibrant colours in his daughter's self-discovery.

And the not that good stuff.

Balto: Wolf Quest is not grounded in reality like its predecessor and didn't have much originality to the story, but it had its moments of decent voice acting from new characters like the soft and firm Nava and the menacing Niju. Aside from that we have to deal with new voices for the recurring characters, and it shows.

Boris is the most noticeable, and even if Charles Fleischer did a decent job, I found him too loud and not funny. I wasn't that keen of Muk and Luk in the original, but they seemed pointless here. Jodi Benson did the best performance as Jenna, I'll give her credit for that.

The story, while not original, had a spiritual theme to it and I would have liked that to be explored more, because it was shown so many times right from the start and especially in this beautiful scene when Balto's daughter is in a cave. It could have been so interesting.

I'm sure Balto: Wolf Quest will entertain on its own, and I was entertained, too. I feel it could have been better, but Even though it is a far cry from its predecessor, it is still among the better sequels out there.
