in First Look / 07.12.2020
Mai Juin Productions, Galatée Films, Transfilm International, STUDIOCANAL and M6 Films launch three first look images from Gilles de Maistre’s The Wolf and The Lion.
From the same team behind Mia and The White Lion comes a new, furry, family adventure that will transport audiences into the heart of breath-taking Canadian landscapes.
The film is set to be released in the first half of 2021.
After her grandfather's death, 20-year-old Alma decides to go back to her childhood home – a little island in the heart of the majestic Canadian forest. Whilst there, she rescues two helpless cubs: a wolf and a lion.
They forge an inseparable bond, but their world soon collapses as the forest ranger discovers the animals and takes them away.
The two cub brothers must now embark on a treacherous journey across Canada to be reunited with one another and Alma once more.
The Wolf and The Lion is directed by Gilles de Maistre (Mia And The White Lion) and will star newcomer Molly Kunz (Widows) and Academy Award® nominee Graham Greene (Wind River, Dances With Wolves) alongside animal castmates, supervised by renowned animal trainer Andrew Simpson (Game Of Thrones, The Revenant).
Catherine Camborde of Mai Juin Productions, and Jacques Perrin, Nicolas Elghozi and Valentine Perrin of Galatée films are producing, alongside Canadian co-producer Claude Léger of Transfilm International.
