Kate (Hayden Panettiere) is an Alpha wolf. This means she’s destined to marry Garth (Chris Carmack) of the Eastern Pack to unite the packs and bring the wolves together. Humphrey (Justin Long), on the other hand is an Omega. Way on the other end of the social scale, they are not allowed to hang out together. All things are well in Jasper Park in Canada when suddenlyl Kate and Humphrey are captured, tranquilized, and transferred to Idaho and told to repopulate the wolf population. Kate knows she must get home immediately and Humphrey (along with two strange geese) offer to assist. They depart on the long and dangerous journey back to Canada and home in Jasper.

This is a really nice film for kids. It teaches lots of values, and teaches lots of good lessons in tolerance, obedience, loyalty, and kindness among many others. It’s certainly interesting for the kids, but an intelligent enough film not to bore the older folks to tears. It’s funny, and has a lot of interesting calamities along the way. It reminds me a lot of the original Land Before Time where they were trying to make the journey to the safe place. The interesting part is in the journey from Idaho to Jasper. Of course Humphrey gets them into one jam after another. But his heart is in the right place and he’s trying to help Kate as best he can. I highly recommend this for kids and their parents. It’s a really good animated film.
