The official blurb informs us:
"Join the pack in this wild, warm-hearted and totally pawsome adventure starring everyone’s favourite alphas and omegas! It’s time for “The Great Wolf Games,” when all the alphas in the packs set aside their differences for some friendly competition. When an unexpected accident puts many of the star alpha wolves out of commission, a new team is assembled that includes forest friends not in the pack. Can Coach Humphrey lead his ragtag group of “underdogs” to victory? Find out in this thrilling movie that will leave you howling for more!"
Eddie and I cuddled on the sofa together, with some Dairylea Dunkers and Hula Hoops, and giggled at the antics of three wolves: Stinky, Claudette and Runt who have found the most unusual team mates. The little bear with the bird issues and the bossy little porcupine join the team. Who will run the fastest? Will they win? Well. you'll have to watch to find out.
This animation will most likely appeal to pre-schoolers and primary school kids (as well as their parents). It is amusing and entertaining, and also teaches the youngsters about fair play and teamwork, and even gender discrimination in sport (I was definitely rooting for Claudette).
It is 43 minutes long, which is just about right for the younger audience with the short attention span.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of the DVD for the purposes of reviewing. All opinions are Eddie's and mine.
