RED JUNIOR AND THE WOLF cover image
Little Red Riding Hood is back in this animation short, Red Junior and the Wolf! It is enjoyable to see Red Riding Hood all grown up with a granddaughter, Red Junior. This has a creative story that brings back a familiar character while drawing you into the story with new loveable characters.

The story follows Little Red Riding Hood as a grandmother and her granddaughter Red Junior. Red Junior has made new friends that own a bakery. However, her new friends are wolves and her grandma is not fond of wolves - for obvious reasons.

The storyline has a clear problem and solution with a meaningful message. However, I have an issue with the lack of dialogue by the characters, instead they utter guttural sound. Granted, there are thought bubbles that get their ideas across, but the lack of dialogue is disappointing. I was really impressed with the details in every scene. In the grandmother's house the background has teapots, family portraits and dishes which make it feel more realistic. Then, additional characters are included from other nursery rhymes and fairytales. The locations are very pretty. The sunset and town scenes are beautifully drawn. The old town where the wolves' bakery is located has an old fashioned town look that feels like it belongs in an fairytale. The background music is upbeat and fun. My favorite part is when the grandmother gives the young wolf a red scarf. It shows that she is sorry for her past actions and that she accepts him as a friend now. You can even see the wolf's tail wag which is a neat detail.

The message of this film is about forgiveness and not judging someone before you get to know them. The grandmother had one bad experience with a wolf so she has a prejudice against wolves. She soon learns that she needs to give individual wolves a chance.

I give this 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it to ages 4 to 10. It is an interesting to look more into Little Red Riding Hood's life after her encounter with the wolf when she was younger. Reviewed by Carlee S., KIDS FIRST!

In a fairytale world, Red Riding Hood's granddaughter is best friends with Wolfie, a young wolf. Granny Red doesn't like wolves because of her past experience, but Wolfie is nothing like the infamous Big Bad Wolf.
