Alpha and Omega is a series of eight animated films produced by Crest Animation Productions and distributed by Lionsgate Films. The first film was released in 2010 and featured the voices of Justin Long and Hayden Panettiere, though subsequent movies were direct-to-video and therefore featured a smaller cast, primarily Ben Diskin and Kate Higgins.

Films[edit]

Alpha and Omega (2010)[edit]

After park rangers capture and ship them all the way across the country, omega wolf Humphrey (Justin Long) and alpha wolf Kate (Hayden Panettiere) find themselves on road trip throughout the Rocky Mountains. Humphrey is all about fun, while Kate devotes herself to duty and discipline. Back home, rival wolves menace their pack, and only Kate and Humphrey can restore peace—but first, they must survive each other.

Alpha and Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure (2013)[edit]

Kate (Kate Higgins), Humphrey (Benjamin Diskin) and their 3 new pups (Stinky, Claudette and Runt) are happily preparing to celebrate their first winter together when their smallest cub, Runt, mysteriously disappears. They must now go on a new journey across the wilderness to find and bring back Runt before the winter snows block their way home. While their adventure does not end exactly as planned, Kate and Humphrey discover that "Home is where the Family Is."

Alpha and Omega 3: The Great Wolf Games (2014)[edit]

All the alphas in the packs set aside their differences for some friendly competition. When an unexpected accident puts many of the pack's star alpha wolves out of commission, a new team is assembled that includes forest friends not in the pack. Can Coach Humphrey (Ben Diskin) lead his ragtag group of "underdogs" to victory?
