Quite frankly, I wasn’t that much of a fan of “Happy Feet” – largely because I thought it started out being one thing and transformed into another by the third reel. I came to see a fun family musical with penguins, not a ‘fun family musical with penguins… by way of On Deadly Ground’.
Still, it made a mint and as such, my criticisms went unheard. They usually do.
”Happy Feet 2” may just right the wrong’s of the first movie. Or not. After all, if my friends didn’t listen to my beefs about the original movie… would George Miller?
Here’s the press release that accompanied the trailer… and the trailer :
The sequel to “Happy Feet,” the Academy Award®-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” features the voices of Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, Alecia Moore (Pink), Sofia Vergara, Anthony LaPaglia, Magda Szubanski and Hugo Weaving, with Brad Pitt and Matt Damon as the Krill.
The film is directed by George Miller, who won an Oscar® as the creator of the original “Happy Feet.” Miller also co-wrote the screenplay with Gary Eck, Warren Coleman and Paul Livingston.
