When a reclusive wombat unintentionally becomes the city’s new superhero, she takes the opportunity to solve an old crime close to her heart.
On the outskirts of Sanctuary City, former miner Maggie Diggins (Deborah Mailman) finds refuge in her burrow after her husband is lost in a digging accident. A trip to the local convenience store sees her both foiling a robbery and finding a new purpose as Combat Wombat, crime fighter. When her newfound fame ruffles the feathers of the city’s reigning cassowary hero Flightless Feathers (Frank Woodley), and crimes mysteriously increase, Maggie joins forces with her new flying-fox sidekick Sweetie (Ed Oxenbould) to uncover the truth and save her city. An animated feature from Brisbane-based production house Like A Photon, Combat Wombat is the second instalment in the Sanctuary City series and a delightful return to the world of The Wishmas Tree (BIFF 2019).
