Alpha and Omega are set to bound into new adventures, following a partnership between Splash Entertainment and Lionsgate that will see three new animated films based on the wolf-driven franchise start hitting the market next year.
With the first film set for an early 2016 release, the 45-minute movies will follow the misadventures of Alpha Kate and Omega Humphrey and their three wolf pups, Claudette, Stinky and Runt, as they learn life lessons in the great outdoors.
Under the terms of the deal, Lionsgate will distribute the three films in the US, Canada and the UK, while Splash Entertainment will handle international distribution in other territories.
Executive producers overseeing the production are Ken Katsumoto, EVP of Lionsgate Family Entertainment, and Liz Young, president of Splash Entertainment.
Lionsgate launched the original Alpha and Omega feature film in 2010, which grossed more than US$50 million at the worldwide box office. Since then, the franchise has expanded to include several direct-to-home entertainment sequels, including Alpha And Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure, Alpha and Omega 3: The Great Wolf Games and Alpha And Omega: The Legend of Saw Tooth Cave.
The next film in the franchise Alpha And Omega: Family Vacation is scheduled for release in August.
Splash Entertainment created a feature film division last September. Its newest productions include an animated family film Norm of the North and the miniseries movies Kulipari: Army of Frogs.
