Trivia

The coyotes in this film are really coywolves which are a wolf-coyote hybrid. Regular wolves that inhabit northwestern American states (including Alaska), northern portions of the Great Lakes region and Canada are gray/grey and white while coyotes have brown, tan, gray/grey and white fur. Both canid species are rarely black. Coyotes that are partially wolves inhabit northeastern American states and eastern Canada. See more »

Goofs

When Bella is first taken to the VA Hospital and is hidden in a storeroom, and she barks, Lucas enters, then Olivia. Neither closes the door. It is closed when Teo knocks. See more »

Crazy Credits

Despite the opening titles before the prologue and the first half of the closing credits is displayed via fading, the movie's title, shown after the prologue, is zooming slightly forward. The text is upper-cased white. See more »

Not A Perfect Film, But Good As It Is.
12 January 2019 | by johnwickallthewayaltSee all my reviews

I personally really enjoyed this movie, especially the concept. Bryce Dallas Howard nails it as the voice of Bella. But let me say that this movie is for older kids ages 8 - 11 because it has some mild violence in it as well as freightening moments which might scare younger children, specifically ages 3 - 5. I recommend this film wether if you're going to see it in theaters or watching it on Redbox.
