It grossed over $178 million worldwide and received positive reviews. The movie was originally set for a release date of February 24, 2019, but changed to a release date of January 16, 2019 due to worrying competition with Disney's The Lion King Reborn. It is the first theatrically-released animated movie produced by Amblin Entertainment in a while since 1995's Balto and 20th Century Fox's non-Blue Sky animated movie since The Book of Life.
Alexander Howlburn is just an average teenage wolf until he joins a group of 3 called the Furgrounds, which consists of a badass female wolf, a know-it-all puppy, and an obese bear. Alexander later finds out that a mad business-man lion named Gordon is on a mission to create the world's biggest crime ever, So Alexander and his gang must stop until it's too late.
