Did You Know?

Trivia

The coyotes in this film are really coywolves which are a wolf-coyote hybrid. Regular wolves that inhabit northwestern American states (including Alaska), northern portions of the Great Lakes region and Canada are gray/grey and white while coyotes have brown, tan, gray/grey and white fur. Both canid species are rarely black. Coyotes that are partially wolves inhabit northeastern American states and eastern Canada. See more »

Goofs

When Bella and Big Kitten separate and they look down on Denver. There is no place in the Denver area where you can look significantly down on Denver and see mountains behind the city. See more »

Crazy Credits

Despite the opening titles before the prologue and the first half of the closing credits is displayed via fading, the movie's title, shown after the prologue, is zooming slightly forward. The text is upper-cased white. See more »

Touching family adventure
10 March 2019 | by Fudge-3See all my reviews

Bella is born a stray in the narrow space under an abandoned house. When the rest of her family is impounded she is adopted into a human household. But when she grows up her new family sends her far away from home.

I got a lot more out of this movie than I expected. It was just starting to drag after about a quarter hour but then the dog gets separated and the adventure begins. It reminded me a lot of, 'The Incredible Journey (1963).'

Great for young children. There is a little bit of threat.

I particularly liked, 'Big Kitten.'
