Sheep and Wolves: Pig Deal is Screening at Catalina Film Festival

GameStop, Inc.

Originally a Russian language animated feature and a sequel to the 2016 Sheep and Wolves, Sheep and Wolves: Pig Deal is a really cute family film a la Zootopia only without the heavy handed message of the Disney made film.

In the sequel that is easily a stand alone feature, a Gypsy rabbit named Mami (Vanessa Gardner) tells the tale of a village where sheep and wolves live harmoniously together. Lead by Grey (Graham Halstead), all is well in the world when the dark wolves, who are the chief predators catch wind of this and like to adhere to the traditions the higher food chain.

When a fox and her ewe friend hear of the town, they rush off to join them as the vixen longs to be a botanist who had no desire to eat her little petite, but wild friend. As tensions mount in the village, the townspeople are suspicious of the new residents when they hear of the pending attack. It is up to Grey and the heterogeneous animal kingdom to unite against the dark wolves and protect their way of life.

This really cute family film is nowhere near the level of detail that Zootopia was, nor do they constantly hammer in the message of veganism or that the predators represent masculinity, which needs to be suppressed. In fact, the subtle imagery of the modern man that could knit yet still be fierce was quite refreshing instead of western arts that try to emasculate all men.

The message in Sheep and Wolves: Pig Deal is clear as day, in that we seek to live harmoniously as a society and that the strong need to protect the weak, not exploit them, which you can tell comes from a very heavy influence regarding Russian Orthodoxy.

In these crazy times we need something hopeful and fun that the entire family can enjoy, even if for a little less than 75 minutes. Oh, and for anyone complaining that the animation isn’t as amazing as Disney, Pixar or Illumination, the budget for Sheep and Wolves: Pig Deal was $3.5 million and the story is fantastic.

Sheep and Wolves: Pig Deal is streaming virtually through the Catalina Film Festival and can be purchased for $12 or a movie pass for every feature and short shown at $49 at
