Apple Has Bought the Rights for Its First Two Films

Apple Has Bought the Rights for Its First Two Films

Apple has revealed its first two films as part of its $1 billion push to create original content. The two films are family focused, one being an animated film, while the other a nature documentary.

Apple has been in talks to purchase Wolfwalkers from animation studio Cartoon Saloon for a while now, with the co-founder confirming the deal via Twitter. Although the film is still in development, the conceptual trailer tells the tale of a young girl with her wolf hunting father moving to Ireland, where she meets a girl who transforms into a wolf herself.

The documentary The Elephant Queen is narrated by Chiwetel Ejiofor and recently premiered at TIFF. It follows a mother elephant who fends for her herd once they’re forced to leave their waterhole.

Expect to see Apple’s streaming service debut in 2019.
