In 2006 Warner Bros. released Happy Feet, the animated singing/dancing penguin movie that was then the latest step in George Miller‘s strange career. (Mad Max –> Babe –> Happy Feet.) Now he’s back with a sequel, Happy Feet Two, and the first teaser is out. The animation looks good, but if you aren’t looking for a penguin-performed pop music mixtape, then best give this one a pass.
Much of the original voice cast returns, and there are a couple of new additions, so the lineup looks like this: Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, Alecia Moore (aka Pink), Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Sofia Vergara.
Head to Apple for HD.
The sequel to the Academy Award(R) winning animated smash hit, “Happy Feet Two” returns audiences to the magnificent landscape of Antarctica in superb 3D. Mumble, The Master of Tap, has a problem because his tiny son Erik is choreo-phobic. Reluctant to dance, Erik runs away and encounters The Mighty Sven – a penguin who can fly!! Mumble has no hope of competing with this charismatic new role model. But things get worse when the world is shaken by powerful forces. Erik learns of his father’s ‘guts and grit’ as Mumble brings together the penguin nations and all manner of fabulous creatures – from tiny Krill to giant Elephant Seals – to put things right.
Happy Feet Two opens on November 18th, 2011.
