Not the biggest fan of the first “Happy Feet”, but then again, I club seals and eat babies for breakfast and sometimes lunch, so whatever. Check out the first teaser trailer for George Miller’s (yes, that George Miller, of “Mad Max” fame) “Happy Feet 2”, which is as penguin-heavy and, I suppose, as penguin-cute as you would expect. If the idea of watching penguins singing songs and dancing is your cup of tea, you should be in heaven.
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.
Starring Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, Alecia Moore (Pink), Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Sofia Vergara, and tap dancing its way into theaters November 18th, 2011.
