The story of 100% Wolf centers on Freddy Lupin, heir to the leadership of a proud family line of werewolves. Positive he’ll become the most fearsome werewolf ever, Freddy is in for a shock when on his 14th birthday his first warfing goes awry, turning him into a ferocious poodle. Thrown by a bone by the pack elders, Freddy has until the next moonrise to prove he has the heart of a wolf, or risk being cast out forever. With the help of an unlikely ally in a streetwise stray named Batty, Freddy must overcome his pink and fluffy exterior to prove he’s still 100% Wolf.
100% Wolf has already been sold to 70 territories, with releases in the UK, Spain, the Middle East and in Russia.

It will be re-released in France this week after a successful first run at the end of 2020 and a break due to the Corona pandemic.
The movie is also available on Hulu (USA).
