what parents need to know

Parents need to know that White Fang 2: Myth of the White Wolf is an old-fashioned Disney adventure film that's best for older kids and tweens. The human hero shares much of the screen time with his wolf-dog partner in a magnificent outdoor setting. Together they help a peaceful Native American tribe protect their fragile ecosystem and face down a powerful enemy. Multiple action sequences find Henry and White Fang in serious peril -- from their natural habitat (a raging river, mountainous terrain) and evil villains with traps and rifles. White Fang bares his teeth and threatens his adversaries. Two decaying bodies are found in the wilderness; one has been hanged. Battle scenes result in some daring rescues and several deaths (none graphic or bloody). Promoted as a sequel to White Fang, this movie stands on its own and, with the exception of White Fang, has a completely different cast of characters.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about the treatment of the Native American tribe in this film. How does it differ from portrayals in earlier adventure films you might have seen? What do you think has caused this cultural change?
  • Alaska is the setting for this movie. The story would be different set in any other place. List all the specific attributes of this natural environment (terrain, wildlife) that contribute to the adventure.
  • In a sequel, can you always expect the story to be a continuation of the original movie? If you saw White Fang, what, if anything, links it to White Fang 2? How does each movie stand on its own?
