[tribal music]

Once upon a time,

there was a great warrior.

Though young in years,

his was an old, powerful soul.

And he was all that stood

between his people,

and total destruction.

The village enemies

come from far and wide,

but they don't suspect

the white wolves have returned!


[tribal shout]

In olden days,

the forest surrounding our village

was inhabited by great white wolves.

Why are you still awake?

I'm watching the storm.

Why did the white wolves attack man?


Savva, you know the story.

I've told you a thousand times.

But where did they go,

and why did they all disappear?

No one knows.

The wolves and humans had close ties.

They were our protectors.

Legend says that a great magician

punished them for turning on us

by changing them into horrid beasts,

which they would remain until

the day a knight would come

to save the world entire.

Why do you say it like that?

"Saving the world entire?"

It sounds weird.

The legends are often told in poetry.

But can one knight really do that?

Save the whole world?

Of course he can.

A person can do anything,

but only if you truly wish for it

with all of your heart.

[distant barking]

[barking continues]

Mom, is something wrong?

No. I just thought...


They're here.

[tense music]

Hurry. Down you go.

I want to stay with you!

Do as I say. Now, Savva!


All alone then, sweetie?

Yes, I'm alone.

Everyone is to gather

in the square. Now!

[evil laughter]

After we're done feeding

on your harvest,

we're taking you to Mom!

She'll pay handsomely for new slaves

to toil through the winter.


Bring us the harvest!

Make sure you haven't hidden any away!

Or we'll eat you instead!



[snoring continues]

Hey, where is my mom?

Savva, what are you doing?

I told you to stay hidden.

I'm gonna get you out, Mom.

Go back to the cellar. Please!

This cage must have a weakness.


How could I break it?



I'll get you out, Mom.

Get that boy!

Get him.

[intense music]




I can feel he's close.

Where, where, where, where, where?


[twig snaps]


He's there!

Oh, no.

Get him, get him, get him, get him!

No, no, no, no!


This isn't happening.

It's a dream.

[horror music]


[evil laughter]

You have nowhere to run.

Got you, little bug!


Got you!

Get away from me!

[evil laughter]

[distant howling]


Is that...

That's not possible.


Is that him?

That's him, is it?

That's him! That's him! That's him!


What are you doing so far away

from the village, boy?

My shoulder... hurts so bad.

[birds chirping]



That was the weirdest dream.

- Hungry, boy?

- Aah!

You really exist?

I'd like to think so.

I put your shoulder

back in place for you.

But you're a white wolf!

Are you gonna eat me?

Not today.

I can... I can go?

Of course. Where will you go?

I have to save my village

from the hyenas.


Can I ask you something?

If there's still

white wolves in the forest,

why don't they protect our village?

Because I'm the only one left.

How do you plan to save

your village, boy?

No idea.

All I know is you can do anything

if you wish for it with all your heart.

What's your name?


I'm Anggee.

I may know someone who can help you.

I don't get it.

Why can't we just eat them?

Moron! That stinking Monkey queen

has offered us a good deal

for these slaves.

You would eat our profit?



Are you trying to poison us?

No. I... I didn't see that in my pile.

Really, sweetheart?

Throw her in the hole!

Don't let them do this!

Stand up to them!


You see that mountain?

At the very top lives a magician.

I am on my way to see him

for reasons of my own.

I believe there will be a warrior there

who can free your village.

So what are we waiting for? Let's go!

Not so fast.

We'll have to fight our way

through swamps

and treacherous jungle,

and when we reach the mountain,

we will still have

to get past Mom Jozee,

the three-headed Monkey queen.

Three-headed Monkey queen?

Really, you think I'm buying that? Huh!

She was once a normal Monkey.

But she was vain,

power-hungry and foolish.

In order to teach her a lesson,

the Magician split her into three parts,

one head for each weakness,

vanity, greed and stupidity.

She was so angry that she had

her army surround the mountain

and completely cut him off

from the outside world.

She doesn't let anyone see the Magician.

Well, how do we get through?

I guess we'll have to wish for it,

with all of our hearts.

What is that?

Oh, my friends! Are you here to save me?

Are you here to get me

out of this terrible forest?

What are you?

What are you?

I'm a boy.

What's your name, tiny one?

I think he means you.

Oh! My name.

Puffy. So where are we headed?


You have to take me

out of this evil place!

Don't leave me here!

We're going to see the Magician

that lives on the mountain.

We should keep moving.


good luck, Puffy.


Don't leave me!

You have to take me! I... I...

I am going to see the Magician too!

- You?

- Mm-hmm.


To break this hideous curse!

To return to my former glory

and shed this gruesome,

terrifying appearance.
