Based on an incredible true story, Balto is a dazzling animated adventure about one of the most courageous canines of all time. Part husky and part wolf, Balto isn’t sure where he belongs in the wilds of Alaska. But when a serious diphtheria epidemic spreads fast among the children of Nome, it’s up to the brave Balto and his friends to rescue a team of sled dogs lost in a blinding Arctic storm and carrying the much-needed anti-toxin. Starring the incredible voice talents of Kevin Bacon, Bridget Fonda, Bob Hoskins and Phil Collins, it’s a remarkable tale of a hero who inspired a nation and became a legend!

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Balto is a well-meaning adventure with spirited animation, but mushy sentimentality and bland characterization keeps it at paw's length from more sophisticated family fare.
Brave dog saves kids in fun but tense fact-based film.
