Movie Series - Balto

Balto was a 1995 live-action/animated movie loosely based on the true story of a dog named Balto who saved children from the 1925 diphtheria epidemic in Alaska by bringing serum to Nome. This movie was the final animated feature to be created by Steven Spielberg's Amblimation animation studio, before Spielberg co-founded DreamWorks with David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg. In the movie, a grandmother named Rosy (portrayed by Miriam Margoyles) tells her granddaughter the story of Balto as they examine a statue of a sled dog in Central Park. The movie becomes animated, and a wolf-dog named Balto (voiced by Kevin Bacon) is shunned by man and dog alike, his only friends being a Russian goose named Boris (voiced by Bob Hoskins), polar bears Muk and Luk (both voiced by Phil Collins), and Rosie's Siberian husky Jenna (voiced by Bridget Fonda). He is mocked by the arrogant and proud Steele (voiced by Jim Cummings) and Steele's fellow sled dogs. When diphtheria strikes Nome, Rosy soon falls victim to the disease herself and a team of sled dogs must retrieve the life-saving serum and bring it to Nome. Balto II: Wolf Quest is the 2002 direct-to-video sequel, while Balto III: Wings of Change is the 2004 direct-to-video sequel.

Balto Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 Not the most accurate depiction but it DID get a new generation interested in that amazing true historical journey of sled dogs racing through impossible weather and trecherous terrain to get the vital diphtheria vaccine to the ice-locked community of Nome, Alaska back in 1925. The Iditerod Race honors the brave men and dogs by following the near-identical route. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 19, 2012, 7:03 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
