Alpha and Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure is a 2013 3D American computer-animated action comedy film. It is the sequel to Alpha and Omega and is the second installment in the franchise. It was released on October 8, 2013 nationwide by Lionsgate.

Plot

Humphrey (Ben Diskin), Kate (Kate Higgins), and their 3 new pups Stinky (Kate Higgins), Claudette (Lindsay Torrance), and Runt (Liza West) are happily preparing to celebrate their first winter together when Runt mysteriously disappears. They must now go on a new journey across the wilderness to find Runt and bring him back before the winter festivities begin at their home. While their adventure does not end exactly as planned, Kate & Humphrey discover that "Home is where the Family is."

The story begins when Stinky, Claudette, and Runt went to the path where Kate and Humphrey sled to rescue Kate's father and Tony from a caribou stampede. Somehow, the topic of uniqueness comes up and Runt decides to show his uniqueness by climbing up a tree and notices three wolves from the Banff pack (rogues) heading their way. As two of the rogues, Stinky, and Claudette chase off a bear, the third rogue kidnaps Runt.

Meanwhile, Humphrey and Kate are preparing the den for dinner with their pups, Winston, Eve, Tony, Garth and Lilly for the holidays.

Production

Production for the film began a week before the release of the first film when Steve Moore wrote a script draft for the film. The film was originally set for a theatrical release, but due to many problems, it was changed to have a straight-to-DVD release. Ben Gluck, who co-directed the first film with Anthony Bell, was originally set to solo direct the sequel. But there was another production scandal, and Gluck turned down as director. For that, he has an uncredited role in the film. The film was officially announced in July 31, 2013 that it would have a straight-to-DVD release in October 8, 2013 in North America. Richard Rich took over as director and the film stars a cast of mostly unknown voice actors.

Reception

Early reviews for Alpha and Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure have been mixed to positive, even if there isn't a rating for the film on Rotten Tomatoes yet. Viewers cited that the film has a more improved script, more character development and the voice acting and the score were also praised. However, criticisms were led to the film's very short run time (being only 47 minutes long). Alpha and Omega 2 currently holds a surprisingly high score of 7.6/10 in IMDb. However, the film currently has received mixed reviews from critics with a rating of 55% in Rotten Tomatoes and a 50 out of 100 in Metacritic. While most fans were very happy with Alpha and Omega 2, some were disappointed for it being too short. However, like the original film, Alpha and Omega 2 gained a cult following among audiences.

In the DVD and Blu-ray release of Alpha and Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure, it has been announced that there will be a third and fourth film in the franchise due to the success of the second film. The third film will be based on a game tournament that the characters participate in and the fourth film will be a Halloween-themed adventure. According to a recent document found online (which is believed to be from Lionsgate), the third sequel is to be released between late 2013 and early 2014 and then followed by the fourth film in mid 2014 or so.

Alpha and Omega 3 and Alpha and Omega 4 are again being directed by Richard Rich and may star the original voice cast from the first film, though this is unconfirmed.
