The last time we caught up with cute wolves Alpha and Omega was at Christmas, when we reviewed Alpha and Omega 2 : A Howl-iday Adventure, a second DVD adventure which introduced us to their three cubs, Stinky, Claudette and Runt.
This third episode, released just in time for Easter, excitedly declares on the box that "the biggest adventure is yet to come". The official blurb says : "Join the pack in this wild, warm-hearted and totally pawsome adventure starring everyone’s favourite alphas and omegas! It’s time for “The Great Wolf Games,” when all the alphas in the packs set aside their differences for some friendly competition. When an unexpected accident puts many of the star alpha wolves out of commission, a new team is assembled that includes forest friends not in the pack. Can Coach Humphrey lead his ragtag group of “underdogs” to victory? Find out in this thrilling movie that will leave you howling for more!"
Bad puns aside, it's a lovely feel-good animated movie with lots of cute and funny moments that the whole family enjoyed watching. We loved seeing the cubs taking centre stage and growing up and I appreciated the underlying life lessons about good sportmanship, fair play, teamwork, working hard to reach your goals and even sexual equality.
It's only 43 minutes long so even younger viewers should manage to sit still long enough to watch it in one go !
