Happy Feet hit theaters in 2006 and brought in $41 million over its opening weekend, going on to gross $379 million before exiting theaters. It introduced the world to singing and dancing penguins and even won the Oscar for the Best Animated Feature Film (beating out the first Cars and Monster House). Now Warner Bros is revisiting the world of animated penguins with Happy Feet Two, set for release this November. The sequel brings back Happy Feet voice cast members Elijah Wood and Robin Williams and adds in Pink, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.
The Plot: 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.
