Video Review: 'White Fang 2: Myth of the White Wolf' (1994)

MPAA Rating: PG
EW's GRADE
B

Details Movie Rated: PG; Genres: Action/Adventure, Kids and Family; With: Scott Bairstow; Distributor: Buena Vista Pictures

That wolf who thinks he's a dog returns in this sequel to Disney's domestication of the touching Jack London tale. This time, White Fang and his new master (Bairstow) befriend a starving Yukon Indian tribe, while greedy land grabbers (led by Molina) supply the sneering villainy. The story has little to do with London, and as a Disney canine adventure, it has less in common with Never Cry Wolf than with Savage Sam. But on a rainy day, a kid could do worse than this picturesque outing. B
