How and why did this get made?
I was amazed, after seeing this, to discover it is part of a franchise. How could this possibly be part of a series, when almost everything about it is wrong? The character design can be actively scary and is often inconsistent. The dialogue is often cliched and lazy, as is the plot. A lot of the music is bad, including one rap song so terrible that a character has to refer to it as a rap for the audience to know it's a rap!
But that's okay, because this is a children's film. Or is it? There are scenes in which some of the good wolves talk about killing caribou for food, despite caribou being portrayed as both sentient and part of the same society as the wolves. Yes it's accurate, but child-friendly it is not. This in itself is not a problem. Many of the great children's films are not exactly child-friendly, but they work because they're good films. This is not, don't try to excuse this as a children's film, because it fails there just like it fails to be good.
