Characters and Voice Cast[]

Main Characters[]

  • Kate (Hayden Panettiere)
  • Humphrey (Justin Long) - Humphrey is a kind and loyal Omega wolf whose job is to keep peace in the Western Pack. He does so with a group consisting of himself, Salty, Mooch, and Shakey. The group occasionally eats berries though only for the buzz of fermented fruit. He ends up, after being abducted with Kate and sent to another park by well meaning Humans, falling in love with an Alpha which in his society is forbidden based on the social order established.

Supporting Characters[]

Minor Characters[]

  • Reba and Janice (Christine Lakin and Marilyn Tokuda) - It's not clear in the film which is which but these two wolves are mostly presented as an on going gag with only one line; "Stop the insanity! Go organic!" which is said in unison. The line makes no real sense in the context of when it's said (the two packs about to fight over hunting rights and meat being organic) but it's presented as a kind of protest. Reba and Janice are vegetarian wolves who feed exclusively on berries. They are often accompanied by two squirrels they've befriended at some point.
  • Shakey - Shakey is a puphood friend of Humphrey's and a peacekeeper of the Western Pack or rather was a peacekeeper. He abandoned the fight between the two packs in order to join Reba and Janice. He'd been caught eating flowers prior and has had a crush on the two for a while. Rather than fight for his pack he was inspired by the little protest the two made and left to be with them.
