Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

For young fans of the likable, popular Alpha and Omega wolf family, there's enough adorableness, adventure, cartoon jeopardy, and potty humor in this 44-minute episode to satisfy. The story invites thought and discussion, on a very elementary level, about what it means to displace a species from its natural place. So despite the by-the-numbers animation, slapdash nature of the production, and the filmmakers' reliance on sequences from earlier episodes to pad the film's running time, this movie has enough going for it to receive a mild recommendation.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
