The heroic half-dog/half-wolf returns to guide his children through difficult circumstances of their own in this direct-to-video sequel to the 1995 animated hit Balto. Sled dog Balto (voice of Maurice LaMarche) is now the father of a pack of cubs; one of his offspring, Aleu (voice of Lacey Chabert), looks more like a wolf than her bothers and sisters, who look much more like ordinary dogs. Aleu is troubled by her differences from the rest of the litter, and becomes even more upset when her siblings are adopted by humans and she is not. Feeling as if she's been shunned as an outsider, Aleu runs away to learn more about the wolves from which she has descended; Balto, who has had a series of troubling dreams, is certain a cruel fate awaits Aleu, and he sets out to find her. Balto II: Wolf Quest also features the voice talents of Mark Hammil, Peter MacNicol, and David Carradine.
