The mail in the north used to be delivered by dogsled, but the success of airplane delivery leaves Balto and the other sled dogs feeling neglected. However, when a delivery plane crashes on a mountain side, the sled dogs get the opportunity to show their worth. This story also prominently features Balto's son, Kodi, who was among the puppy litter that we met in Balto II: Wolf Quest. Written by
In the film's original script, Kodi does not help rescue Balto. Phil Weinstein pitched the idea of Steele being the one who volunteers to go help Balto on the rescue since, in the original draft, Kodi wouldn't go. Phil thought it would be interesting for Balto and Steele to be out alone together. The E.D.A.S. dog alert sequence was added, and the flashbacks to Kodi as a puppy were added in Jenna's song "You Don't Have to Be a Hero". The opening song visuals originally told more of the story of Kodi, getting promoted from the dog in the back to the front. Also, the opening scene began with a postman addressing a letter, we follow the letter as it gets sorted, then bagged in a sack, then placed on a sled to get delivered. There are some elements of this in the final version. The close-up of the letter stamped "AIR MAIL" at the end of the movie was just a pay-off for what was set up in the beginning. The ice bridge sequence was also added. See more »

You can beat that plane paws down now that you're lead dog.
We're behind ya one hundred percent, Balto!
If anyone can do it, you can!
Everyone listen. I-I've seen it fly. I-I just think we have to consider the possibility...
Let's do the call!

I loved the first Balto movie, it wasn't a flawless film, but it had a good story, good animation, good voice acting, and a heart to it. I hated Balto 2: Wolf Quest, it had a contrived story, sub-par animation, OK voice acting at best, and was obviously just a cash grab. Now we have Balto 3: The Wings of Change, is it any good? Kinda.
First off the story is much better, no weird spiritual stuff, just a race against a bush plane, and a rescue. Also there is a subplot of Boris falling in love, but he can't fly, the subplots OK, but the movie probably could have done a better job with it. The voice actings better, Balto sounds more like he did in the first. The animation, well, it's still sub-par 2-D and awful CGI. Also there are more songs in this film, but it isn't just howling, and the songs, are actually, not that bad. There not Disney quality songs, but they were pretty descent.
Balto 3 isn't perfect, but it's far better than the second in the series, so if you want to, give it a shot, it may surprise you.
