Movie Info

This fanciful animated adventure tells the story of Yobi, a magical shape-changing fox of Korean legend. Yobi is 100 years old - aged by human standards but just a kid by those of her own species. When aliens crash land in Yobi's woods, she befriends them as they toil to repair their spaceship, but eventually, a group of children discover the creatures and capture one of them. Yobi must pose as a human girl in order to steal her way into the group and rescue her alien friend, but the price of her ruse may eventually mean capturing the soul of someone she loves. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Yobi, the Five Tailed Fox (Yeu woo bi)

This really is a beautiful animation. In fact it is quite breath taking. It rivals even the best of Studio Ghibli's back work. The story is one of many imaginative and creative twists and characters. Aliens, Five tailed foxes, Shadow men etc. The visuals are astonishing in parts. CGI is used sparingly to enhance the 2D animation. It brings it to life in ways I can't remember seeing. The story itself may be typical fantasy, but their is enough truly touching romance, funny sidekicks and dark moments (the opening is essentially a horror) to make this a rare family film that should be treasured by everyone forever and ever.

Super Reviewer

this k-anime has all the right elements: cute animals, mystery, childhood gaiety, combined with high-resolution 3D-scapes and action, yet lacks the passion and moving story that drives this genre of anime; it thus ends up as (pretty and) lifeless as the soul-stolen bodies it portrays. nonetheless, a commendable effort, particularly shining in the gfx department.
