Wolfwalkers is an Irish animated film produced by Cartoon Saloon and Mélusine Productions that was theatrically released in the United Kingdom on October 26, 2020 and subsequently premiered in the United States on November 13, 2020. On December 11, 2020, the film was then released on the Apple TV+ streaming service.

The film's premise takes place in 1650 Ireland and follows a young girl named Robyn Goodfellowe, who has recently moved from England to the developing city of Kilkenny. Her father is tasked with hunting down the wild wolves that threaten the city's security and she is driven to help him despite his warnings of the danger. However, upon venturing beyond the city's walls, she befriends a feral girl named Mebh, who has strange powers and lives among the wolves. The two form a unique bond together as she shows Robyn the experience of living among the wilderness as a wolfwalker.

After working with Robyn to swipe some food from nearby farmers, Mebh briefly looks bloated after gulping a large bottle of milk.
