In a magical faraway land, in a picturesque little village nestled among green meadows and rolling hills, lives a flock of carefree sheep. But their pastoral and stress-free life is interrupted when a pack of wolves sets up camp in the nearby ravine. In accordance with ancient traditions, the retiring pack leader Magra announces that his future successor must prove his right to lead by vanquishing his rivals. When the powerful and blood-thirsty Ragear steps forward, the only wolf brave enough to challenge him is Grey, the pack's favorite, but a hopeless goof ball. To become a leader and win back Bianca's love, Grey goes off into the woods, where he discovers a camp of Gypsy rabbits. The fortune-teller rabbit Mami gives him a magical "transmutation potion." Grey drinks the potion and goes back to the wolves' den, but finds out upon arrival that he has been transformed into... a ram!Written by
This is the third film from Wizart Animation Studio.
I have been following Wizart since their first film (The Snow Queen, 2012) and have noticed that their films have exponentially been getting better. This film is no exception to that trend (although it is only their #3).
Story: This is a timeless fairytale told from anamorphic Sheep and Wolves. The general concept is "despite their differences all life is precious and should be treated as such" which could be a valuable lesson this day and age. The characters are comically entertaining, while the voice actors (english cast) certainly knew how to make them lovable.
Animation: clearly a major improvement to The Snow Queen and Snow Queen 2, some blurry and odd animation sequences, but mostly minor scenes and were enjoyable scenes despite that.
Music: Seemed like the composer had a better handle on this film than The Snow Queen. Still nothing hummable, but final song was fun.
-I only wish that Wizart would hurry up with a DVD/BD release here in the United States already. I really would like to share this with other people.
