Ruby Rose, Tom Felton Flock Together for Wizart’s ‘Sheep’N’Wolves’ (Exclusive)
The animated family feature comes from the same Russian animation studio behind ‘The Snow Queen’ franchise.
Orange is the New Black inmate Ruby Rose is set to swap the minimum-security prison for the countryside in upcoming animated title Sheep’n’Wolves.
The rising Australian star will be joined by British actor Tom Felton, best known as Harry Potter’s Hogwarts bully Draco Malfoy, on the family project, which is having its AFM market screening on Nov. 4.
Coming from Russian TV and film animation studio Wizart — behind the hugely successful Snow Queen franchise — and producer Sergey Selyanov, Sheep’n’Wolves tells the story of a magical land where a flock of sheep find their carefree days interrupted by a pack of wolves who move to a nearby ravine.
Felton, who has a string of films in production including A United Kingdom, Stratton and Megan Leavy, will voice aspiring pack leader Wolf Grey, with Rose as his fiancé Bianca. China Anne McClain (A.N.T. Farm, Grown Ups) also joins the cast and is set to sing the theme “Raised High.”
Directed by Maxim Volkov from a script by Neil Landau, behind 1991 comedy Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead, Sheep’N’Wolves is due to have its premiere in spring 2016. Meanwhile, Snow Queen 3, following on from the Sean Bean, Sharlto Copley and Bella Thorne-voiced Snow Queen 2, which was picked up by eOne for North America, is also due for international rollout next year.

In a magical faraway land, in a picturesque little village nestled among green meadows and rolling hills, lives a flock of carefree sheep. But their pastoral and stress-free life is interrupted when a pack of wolves sets up camp in the nearby ravine. In accordance with ancient traditions, the retiring pack leader Magra announces that his future successor must prove his right to lead by vanquishing his rivals. When the powerful and blood-thirsty Ragear steps forward, the only wolf brave enough to challenge him is Grey, the pack’s favorite, but a hopeless goof ball. To become a leader and win back Bianca’s love, Grey goes off into the woods, where he discovers a camp of Gypsy rabbits. The fortune-teller rabbit Mami gives him a magical “transmutation potion.” Grey drinks the potion and goes back to the wolves’ den, but finds out upon arrival that he has been transformed into… a ram!
