Runt is the youngest cub of Kate and Humphrey’s litter. He is funny, rambunctious and caring, but always feels the need to prove that he is just as good as his alpha brother and sister.
Claudette and Stinky
Claudette and Stinky are the two alpha cubs from Kate and Humphrey’s litter. Both are very smart and love their brother Runt. They strive to do the right thing, and although their intentions are good their inexperience gets them into trouble.
Kate and Humphrey
This unlikely pair have grown into a complimentary duo. They recognize each other’s strengths and work as a team to parent and protect their family.
Furry “Howl” Family
The whole gang is back in this all new adventure. They all work together to keep their family, the pack and friends safe from any dangers in front of them.
As soon as my son saw this DVD on the table he asked if we could watch it together immediately! I gladly obliged as I had to review it. My son saw the original Alpha and Omega DVD. He loved that version. Since I hadn’t seen it, I was glad that there were previews of the original featured because I wanted to get a better understanding of the sequel, based on the original. My son was more than happy to fill me in during the previews. I not only understood the storyline from the original, it made me want to go out and get the original to watch again with my son.
The sequel appeared to be just as delightful as the original! My son, who loves wolves because they resemble dogs, fell in love with the wolf cubs instantly. Both of us were giggling, uh-ohing, and laughing out loud the entire movie! There were only two things we felt were missing: a longer storyline and more emphasis on the holiday season. As a holiday DVD, there should have been more reference to the holidays or more build up to it’s wonderful ending. This is where adding a bit more length to the movie would have also given it more meaning for the holidays. All-in-all, it was still a fun, engaging, endearing movie with a terrific theme!
Alpha and Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure is available exclusively at Walmart locations nationwide for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively. Plus, you can visit Coupons.com or Walmart.com to receive $3.00 off the BD or DVD!
