Wolf Children Ame and YukiThe Cartoon Brew website has just (2 January) posted an admittedly incomplete preview list of 19 animated feature-length films announced for release during 2012.

Many such as Madagascar 3, Ice Age: Continental Drift, and Norm of the North will feature anthropomorphized animals. However, Japanese film The Wolf Children, featuring two human-wolf hybrid children, sounds likely to especially appeal to Furry fans:

Okami kodomo no ame to yuki (The Wolf Children Ame and Yuki). From the director of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Summer Wars, the story of a college student named Hana who marries a “wolf man” and gives birth to two wolf children. When the wolf man dies, Hana and the children move from the city to a quiet rural town.

Ed: dronon also noted The Lorax, Brave, and Ribbit – "The tale of a frog with an identity crisis."

A Madagascar sequel, and an Ice Age sequel. 2012 is going to be great for me in the way of movies.

I am reading that in a flat tone of voice for your sake.

If you really are excited, uh, you want to review'em?

I probably won't see them, is the thing.

The quality of the Madagascar movies varies in inverse-exponential proportion to how much screen time that irritating little old lady has.

I don't think I'll be seeing Madagascar 3, they're just turning it into what Shrek has become.
