Peter & the Wolf is a short Polish-British-Norwegian model animation film released in 2007. It was written and directed by Suzie Templeton. The film is based around the story of Peter and the Wolf and is set to the music Sergei Prokofiev wrote for the story in 1936.
An animated retelling set to Prokofiev's suite. Peter is a slight lad, solitary, locked out of the woods by his protective grandfather, his only friend a duck. In town, he's bullied. When a wolf menaces the duck - as well as grandfather's fat cat and an ill-flying bird that Peter has befriended - Peter bravely tries to tree the wolf. Grandfather, the townspeople, and the hunters who have antagonized Peter figure in the dénouement.
