A HOWL-IDAY ADVENTURE!
ALPHA AND OMEGA 2: A HOWL-IDAY ADVENTURES again follow the alpha wolf couple Kate (Kate Higgins) and Humphrey (Ben Diskin) and their three adorable wolf cubs Stinky, Claudette and Runt in a new adventure as they prepare to celebrate the holidays. The pups are just as curious as their father and just like in the first film they will find themselves in an inconvenient predicament–or two. The beautifully animated feature is only 45-minutes long; however, each viewing moment is charming enough for the entire family to enjoy.
The holidays are fast approaching and Kate is busy preparing the cave for her parents visit. Humphrey gets sidetracked while collecting holly to decorate the cave and find marrow-rich bones for dinner. The cubs are bored and decide to go off on an adventure of their own. While trying to escape a large bear, Runt, the smallest of the trio goes missing. When Stinky and Claudette return home without Runt, their mother Kate, their father Humphrey and their grandparents frantically search for the cub. Winter is coming and coming fast. They have to find Runt before the first snow falls and block their return home. Little do they know Runt is not just missing–but he is in the custody of Humphrey’s old and dangerous rivals. Will they return to celebrate the holiday’s with their family? Will they be forced the very real possibility of never returning home?
Alpha and Omega 2 Howl-iday Adventures isn’t as dramatic or as intriguing as the first ALPHA AND OMEGA (2010)animated film. However, it is perfect enough for younger viewers to enjoy and parents not to worry about their kids watching the film. The animation overall is appealing which is a huge plus if you plan on adding the DVD to your collection. The story is decent and is not overly complicated to follow and is predictable. The film also has its heartwarming and adorable moments, filled with enough action and suspense to keep young ones glued to the television.
All told, an enjoyable family film.
