I saw it for the first time a few months ago (never saw it as a kid), and I loved it! I haven't seen any of the sequels yet, but I will watch them soon, and maybe I'll like them, maybe I won't.

I love Balto and have seen all three movies. The third is my least favorite. I suppose I'm one of the few people who really liked Wolf Quest a lot. Balto was never my favorite character. It we're going with the original movie I love Jenna, but if you add Wolf Quest I my favorite is Aleu. I would have liked to see more of the white wolf, Balto's mother.

I absolutely love Balto the sequels are good also. I personal like the 3rd better than the 2nt, but that does not mean I have anything against the 2nt. Balto is a movie and franchise that I like almost as well as The Lion King. There are not many of those.

I saw Wolf Quest a few weeks ago and I actually really loved it! I can't wait to see Balto 3!!

Same here. Balto is up there for me with Lion King and Land Before Time, which is saying something, given that I've loved TLK and LBT for pretty much my whole life, whereas I just saw Balto for the first time right after I started college last fall.

I have seen all three movies. The third one I have only watched once, and it was pretty forgettable.. The first and second ones I have watched several times, and my favourite is honestly Wolf Quest. The original Balto is good, of course, but I prefer the sequel because it focuses more on the animal characters and the father-daughter relationship between Aleu and Balto, which reminds me a lot of Kiara and Simba. :P One thing that I love about Aleu`s story is that there is no romance plot. That is very refreshing for a female protagonist.

I personally liked Balto 3 better than Balto 2, Even though I love both of them.

I couldn't help, but notice that as well. For me that is not a bad thing. Aleu is also voiced by Lacey Chabert, who voices Young Vitani.

I never gave that to much thought.

Spoiler: show
Other than the fact that as The Wolf Queen she would have to find a mate. The problem with that is from what I can see there is no Wolf worthy of her in her pack.


The no romance angle is a quite a departure from the norm when you think about it.

Balto was one of my first obsessions, right along with The Lion King and Spirit. It really got me into drawing, which got me into writing. The first will always be my favorite, and if I had to choose between Wolf Quest and Wings of Change, I would probably go for the 3rd. I love them all though. The animation was what really got me, and the first forum I ever joined was Balto Source, funnily enough. I remember when Wolf Quest was literally nowhere, and we had to special order it. Then it decided to show up at Walmart and I was ticked :lol:

It makes me happy anytime I see the movies being sold in Walmart or anywhere else, but when all 3 are in a pack for (I think) $5.00 does that mean that Universal does not think too highly of The "Balto" Franchise :?

A bit bumpy for an old topic, but I somehow managed to miss this and only found it today.

Considering the budget it was made with, or rather a lack thereof, the movie is in many ways much better than it really has a right to be. Not that that's a bad thing.

What was really funny is that because I liked the soundtrack by quite a bit, I went ahead and bought it from the Amazon music store. I then played it in my car while driving along a nice road that I don't go on too often -and now I strongly associate the soundtrack with that road. Can't really say that's a bad thing.

As for the movie itself? Well, yes, I said it above: it's far better than it has a right to be. Plus, it most likely got a few people interested in the real history of Alaska at that timepoint, even if the movie "based on a true story" has talking dogs in it. And is animated.
