  • The first trailer for Apple TV+ feature "Wolfwalkers" is now on YouTube.
  • "Wolfwalkers" is based on Irish legend.
  • It looks stunning.

The first trailer for the upcoming Apple TV+ feature "Wolfwalkers" is now available for us on YouTube and it's quite the watch.

Based on an Irish legend and set in 17th century Ireland, the feature includes all of the folklore, magic, and tension that you might expect – all wrapped up in a hand-drawn art style that will capture the imagination.

In a time of superstition and magic, a young apprentice hunter, Robyn Goodfellowe, journeys to Ireland with her father to wipe out the last wolf pack. While exploring the forbidden lands outside the city walls, Robyn befriends a free-spirited girl, Mebh, a member of a mysterious tribe rumored to have the ability to transform into wolves by night. As they search for Mebh's missing mother, Robyn uncovers a secret that draws her further into the enchanted world of the WOLFWALKERS and risks turning into the very thing her father is tasked to destroy.

"Wolfwalkers" will land on Apple TV+ on December 11, just in time to settle down in a nice, cozy room with the family. I have a feeling this will be best watched with a cup of hot chocolate and the fire blazing.

Viewers will need an Apple TV+ subscription to enjoy 'Wolfwalkers". Priced at $4.99 per month, and with new content being added all the time, it could be the best money you spend this month.
