Watch Alpha and Omega
- 1 hr 18 min
“Alpha and Omega” is an animated feature film released in traditional 2D and 3D by Crest Animation Productions. The film follows the adventures of two wolves from the same pack but on opposite ends of the social ladder. The animals are separated from their pack by conservationists, and must work together to return to their home and the family they both love. Much like many love stories before it, the film opens by introducing the two leads. The female wolf, Kate, is an Alpha, and a member of the highest level of society within the wolf pack. The male wolf, Humphrey, is an Omega, a member of the bottom class. While Kate prepares to complete a deal sought out by her father to bring peace between two rival packs, Humphrey is content goofing around and having fun all day. Humphrey’s main job is to serve as a distraction to take the seriousness out of any situation, and Kate is supposed to be a leader in training. However, before Kate can complete her engagement, a group of conservationists tranquilize and relocate Kate and Humphrey to repopulate a wilderness. While Humphrey has feelings for Kate, she distrusts his motives at first, because she does not want to repopulate an area with him. The pair decide it would be best to find their way back to their pack. The two embark on an unlikely bonding exercise to traverse hundreds of miles before the two rival packs go to war. However, the situation is complicated when the wolf Kate was supposed to marry falls in love with another female wolf. So when Kate and Humphrey find their way back, the solution is not as easy as Kate marrying another wolf. In the end, Humphrey can not take the disappointment of losing his chance with Kate and decides to leave the pack. When Kate realizes her mistake, she calls off the wedding and declares her love for Humphrey, only to have the other wolf declare his love for the other female. Kate runs after Humphrey to change his mind about leaving and tell her how he really feels. “Alpha and Omega” touches on several themes such as teamwork, believing in yourself, and trusting others, but puts a fair amount of emphasis on being who you are and having self respect. The two main characters are forced to work together at their objections, but end up having a blossoming relationship because their personalities compliment each other so well.
