Wolfwalkers Comes to US Cinemas November via GKIDS, Streams December on Apple Tv+

It's been a long wait for the release of the new Cartoon Saloon film Wolfwalkers. The highly anticipated film from directors Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart had its world premiere (as a 'virtual screening') at this year's Toronto International Film Festival back in September. This week it will have its UK premiere at London Film Festival (again as a virtual screening) which will be followed on October 30 with a UK and Ireland cinema release from Wildcard Distribution. Fans in the US have just had to look on patiently and hope for more news.

GKIDS Films have now officially confirmed that they have the theatrical rights for the United States. This had previously been reported on by some third party sources but there had not been an official announcement until now. It's not that big a surprise as GKIDS has distributed all of Cartoon Saloon's previous films in the US, leading The Secret Of Kells, Song Of The Sea, and The Breadwinner to Oscar nominations.

US fans will have to wait a wee while longer as the US theatrical opening is November 13.  Of course, a trip to the cinema right now isn't as easy as it normally is and cinemas in the largest markets of LA and New York remain closed. But if you have a cinema nearby that normally gets GKIDS Films, and you feel comfortable returning (and many do not) then you'll have something to look forward to.




For anyone for who the cinema isn't an option, or who lives outside the US or UK, then the announcement also has you covered. The film will make its debut globally on streaming service Apple TV+ on December 11.  A subscription (and compatible device) is required but a free trial is available if you're a new subscriber.

The news comes with a new trailer, you can watch below.
