The producers of A Tale of Mari and Three Puppies
return to explore the sometimes magical relationship between humans and dogs in A Tale of Ululu's Wonderful Forest
. Filmed in picturesque Hokkaido, Ululu
is a warm story about two children's quest to reunite a special creature with his mother. Directed by TV director Nakanuma Makoto with a score by famed composer Hisaishi Joe, Ululu
is a touching drama that the whole family can enjoy.
When their mother becomes ill, siblings Subaru (Kuwashiro Takaaki) and Shizuku (Kitamura Sara) are sent to Hokkaido to spend the summer with their veterinarian father (Funakoshi Eichiro). Spending their days with their aunt Chie (Fukada Kyoko, Yatterman) in the forest, the kids soon meet a small, wolf-like dog that they name Ululu. When people suspect Ululu to be a rare breed of wolf, the kids decide to go off on a journey to protect him from researchers and to reunite him with his mother.
