Norm of the North: King Sized Adventure, also known as Norm of the North 3: King Sized Adventure or simply Norm of the North 3, is a 2019 American computer-animated comedy-adventure direct-to-video movie produced by Splash Entertainment and distributed by Lionsgate Home Entertainment. It serves as a sequel to Norm of the North: Keys to the Kingdom.


An evil archaeologist named Dexter has stolen an ancient Chinese artifact. With the help of his lemming friends, Norm must keep his word and embark on a journey across the world to help recover the artifact for the people of China.

Why It's More like Ant-Sized Rather Than King-Sized

  1. The writing is just as bad as the other films.
  2. Despite supposedly being the main character, Norm barely does anything. So instead, the Lemmings do everything else. So basically, this movie is all about the Lemmings.
  3. artifact that Norm has to rescue does nothing other than opening a door leading to statues in the ground.
  4. The man who needs rescuing doesn't even look like a grandpa. In fact, his grandson looks as if he graduated college.
  5. Norm didn't allow his son to manage the hockey game because he thinks his son won't manage the game well, however, Norm allowed his daughter to manage the hockey game which makes no sense at all.
  6. Dexter is a very horribly-written villain. The only reason why he is evil is that he wants to use the artifact to gain access to a treasure in a mountain that only shows once every century, and he does it for money while also disrespecting Chinese culture, which is a pretty weak reason for being evil. He also tries so hard to sound evil but comes off extremely forced-in and childish.
  7. This movie cannot go without one scene without any humor. It can't take itself seriously, and to add even more insult to injury, the jokes are not funny at all.
    • Believe it or not, there are some racist jokes in this film.
    • Also, there's some immature toilet humor such as the Lemmings urinating so that they can get Norm out of the cave.
      • Speaking of urinating, you also get a brief scene where you get to see their pee, which is disgusting.
    • The main running gag of the film is when Olympia continuously calls Norm in unnecessary situations just for the slightest thing going wrong, which gets old pretty fast.
  8. This movie will lead you to ask so many questions such as:
    • Why would anybody go to the north pole just for a wedding?
    • Why would a polar bear have a cell phone?
    • Why would anyone keep Komodo dragons as pets, and why would anyone name them "Chaos" and "Mayhem?"
    • What happened to Dexter after he was left alone in the temple?
    • Like the previous films, there is still some inaccuracy with the animals, such as the Komodo dragons shooting their tongues like a chameleon
  9. The soundtrack tries to sound "adventurous," but fails to, especially since the ending has a terrible pop song.
  10. Speaking of the ending, it's one of those generic "dance party" endings!
  11. Norm decides to put his son Quinn in charge, which results in Quinn being extremely unlikable as he bosses around his siblings and friends so that he can make the wedding "perfect."
  12. In fact, all of the characters (except Olympia) are unlikable at best, so who should feel some kind of sympathy for them?
  13. What's even more mind-boggling is that this film was released on the exact same year as the second one!

Redeeming Qualities

  1. It doesn't rely too much on pop-culture references, unlike the last two films, which is a bit of an improvement.
  2. A brand-new location was added. The previous two movies only had the Arctic and New York. This contributes to the film's above-average environments with the Chinese forest looking kind of vivid.
  3. During the end credits, you get to see the concept artwork of the film, which is more entertaining than the entirety of this film.
  4. A mildly funny joke:
    • Norm: Excuse me, how do I get to the university?
      Flying Duck [monotonously] Study.
  5. Like the previous two films, Olympia is still a tolerable character.
  6. It seems that the visuals and animation have improved a bit, with the humans having detailed skin texture, and the characters moving fluently. It may not be perfect, but at least it is a far cry from the last 2 movies before it, and all of the Alpha and Omega Movies, according to Dumbsville.
