Wolfwalkers has found its companion piece. Cartoon Saloon, the Irish studio behind the forthcoming fantasy feature, has animated a spot for environmental NGO Greenpeace that addresses the impact of industrial meat production.
“There’s a Monster in My Kitchen” draws attention to deforestation in Brazil and across the world, slotting neatly into the studio’s canon of ecological works. The short film was produced with creative agency Mother and backed by Paul McCartney’s Meat Free Monday campaign. Watch it below:
In the spot, a young boy is about to tuck into some chicken when he is confronted by a jaguar, who proceeds to tell him about the damage meat farming is wreaking on his habitat. The film accompanies new research by Greenpeace which shows that around 87,500 square miles of territory in Brazil — an area roughly the size of Minnesota — had burned up this year by the end of September.
