WolfWalkers Fun Facts
I was super excited to get to Learn To Draw WolfWalkers Robyn & Mebh With The Filmmakers! But, I was elated to have been able to chat about the movie with them too. Here are 7 WoldWalkers fun fact that totally caught my attention during our conversation:
- Robyn was supposed to be a boy at first: this was reversed because at the time the story takes place, boys did not have any push back on what they could or not do -Robyn wants to be a hunter like her father.
- Everything takes place in Kilkenny, Ireland.
- It took 3 years to make this movie!
- The wolves incredible sense of smell and hearing are depicted with colors in the animation
- At the end of the movie, the credits list “wolf consultants” which are the dogs of studio employees that worked in the film
- Mebh’s full name, Og MacTire, means “young wolf”. She is also named after Queen Medb.
- Robyn Goodfellowe is named an English fairy.
What would you do if you were a wolf? The filmmakers would roll in the grass and howl at the moooooooooon!

One thing that stood out for me, was a simple explanation by director Tom Moore. He said that Robyn’s lines were straight and angular. Purposely done, to show the differences between her and Mebh. On the other hand, Mebh is all curves. You’ll see what I mean with the graphics below:
