Flying Bark in Production on ‘200% Wolf’

The heroic pink poodle is back in the ‘100% Wolf’ sequel, with returning director Alexs Stadermann; writer Fin Edquist; producers Barbara Stephen and Alexia Gates-Foale; and co-producer Francesca Hope.

Flying Bark Productions announced 200% Wolf, the sequel to the feature film 100% Wolf based on Australian author Jayne Lyons’s books “100% Wolf” and “100% Hero,” is in the works and scheduled for release in 2024.

200% Wolf sees the return of director Alexs Stadermann; writer Fin Edquist; producers Barbara Stephen and Alexia Gates-Foale; and co-producer Francesca Hope. Producer Carmen Perez-Marsa Roca and Atlantika Films’ Executive Producer Nano Arrieta join the team.  Returning cast includes Samara Weaving as Batty; Akmal Saleh as Hamish; and Ilai Swindells as Freddy.

The sequel continues the story of Freddy Lupin, a pink were-poodle, who has everything it takes to lead his werewolf pack, except respect. If only he were more… wolfish. But when a wayward wish transforms him into a werewolf and deposits a mischievous moon sprite on Earth, Freddy’s world is turned upside-down. With Batty and his dog pals along for the ride, Freddy must travel to the mysterious Wolfbane Zone to enlist the help of a dangerous werewolf sorceress. If the team can avoid being turned into were-toads and Freddy can resist the pull of forbidden wolf-magic, maybe they can send the cheeky sprite home and save the world. One thing’s for sure – Freddy will never question being a poodle again!

100% Wolf was a Rockie Awards nominee at the 2021 Banff World Media Festival and director Alexs Stadermann was nominated for Best Direction of an animation project at the Australian Directors Guild Awards 2021.  The ABC ME television spin-off series 100% Wolf – The Legend of the Moonstone won three Telly Awards, an AEAF Gold Award and the Asian Television Award in 2021, among other wins and nominations. A second season is currently in pre-production.

A co-production with Spain’s Atlantika Films and Western Australia’s Siamese, 200% Wolf is produced with major production funding from Screen Australia and financed in association with Screenwest and Lotterywest. The Canary Islands’ 3Doubles join for animation services on the 85-minute comedy adventure film.  StudioCanal will distribute the film across Australia while Studio 100 Film is managing international sales.  200% Wolf has already garnered support from the distributors of 100% Wolf including VIVA Kids (United States), Notorious (Italy), and FilmHouse (Israel).

“We had tremendous success with the North American release of 100% Wolf in 2020,” said Victor Elizalde, President of VIVA Kids. “We are thrilled to be reuniting with Studio 100 and Flying Bark Productions for the highly anticipated sequel. We know audiences are going to love it!”
