The heroic half-dog/half-wolf returns to guide his children through difficult circumstances of their own in this direct-to-video sequel to the 1995 animated hit Balto. Sled dog Balto (voice of Maurice LaMarche) is now the father of a pack of cubs; one of his offspring, Aleu (voice of Lacey Chabert), looks more like a wolf than her bothers and sisters, who look much more like ordinary dogs. Aleu is troubled by her differences from the rest of the litter, and becomes even more upset when her siblings are adopted by humans and she is not. Feeling as if she's been shunned as an outsider, Aleu runs away to learn more about the wolves from which she has descended; Balto, who has had a series of troubling dreams, is certain a cruel fate awaits Aleu, and he sets out to find her. Balto II: Wolf Quest also features the voice talents of Mark Hammil, Peter MacNicol, and David Carradine. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
The Tale of Despereaux
A diminutive mouse strives to make a mammoth change in his troubled kingdom in this adaptation of author Kate DiCamillo's Newbery Medal-winning children's book. A long time ago, in the distant kingdom of Dor, a horrible accident broke the heart of the king, left a beautiful princess crestfallen, and filled the townspeople with despair. As the sun disappeared from the sky and the flowers were drained of color, the laughter slowly ceased in this once-magical land. It was into this darkened world that a tiny mouse named Despereaux Tilling was born, and while this virtuous little rodent may have been short in stature, his bravery was ultimately too big for such a small world to contain. An unlikely hero with oversized ears and a discernible wheeze, Despereaux was taken with tales of chivalry, and longed to one day become a noble figure among his people. Sometimes in order to realize their true destiny, heroes must first experience great hardship, however, and when Despereaux fails to adhere to the rigid rules of his society, he is banished from Dor. Later, while exploring the outer realms, the lonely Despereaux is joined by a kindhearted rat named Roscuro. Roscuro, too, has been excommunicated from his homeland, and still cannot stand to look into a mirror lest he be reminded of his painful past. Later, as Despereaux embarks on a treacherous quest to rescue the endangered Princess Pea, Roscuro is set down the path of self-destruction after receiving a painful rejection from his highness. Now, on their way to realizing their extraordinary destinies, these two unlikely heroes will face off against the malevolent leader of the sewer rats, who is plotting revenge on humans from his subterranean kingdom; befriend a common serving girl who longs to become princess; and meet a whole host of colorful characters that they will never forget. Matthew Broderick, Dustin Hoffman, Emma Watson, and Tracey Ullman lead a powerhouse cast in this animated feature produced by Gary Ross and Allison Thomas. Also lending voices to the project are Sigourney Weaver, Kevin Kline, Stanley Tucci, William H. Macy, and Christopher Lloyd. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

However, what he discovers under the city is a tribe of Native American mice who were driven underground by prejudiced European immigrants. Fievel makes new friends with the outcasts, and he comes to realize that they have the same right to live freely in America as anyone else. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
