You can’t keep a good penguin down (especially one that saved the Emperor penguin population and made Warner Bros. Pictures a lot of money in the process). In Happy Feet Two the savior in “Happy Feet,” Mumbles, is all grown up with a wife and son. The issue at hand this time around isn’t that Mumble’s son Erik can’t dance or sing (recall Mumbles can’t sing), it’s that he can’t do it in step with his fellow penguins. This leads to his running away, which, in turn, causes Mumbles to enlist the help of all the Antarctic species to find him. As the teaser trailer shows, expect a lot of timely song covers and dance steps to pepper the picture.
Happy Feet Two employs the voices of Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Pink, Elizabeth Daily, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt and Hank Azaria.
Happy Feet Two dances into US theaters on November 18, 2011 and UK theaters on December 2, 2011.
