Remember George Miller? Dr. (as in physician) George Miller, the director who brought you ‘Mad Max,’ ‘Babe,’ ‘Lorenzo’s Oil’ and ‘Happy Feet’? Well, five years after he introduced dancing penguins to the world, he’s back with a ‘Happy Feet’ sequel titled, appropriately enough, ‘Happy Feet 2 in 3D.’ Set for a November 18 release, the film uses the voice talent of Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Hank Azaria, Alecia Moore (Pink) and Sofia Vergara. ‘Happy Feet’ charmed audiences of all ages with its story about the world of the Emperor Penguins — who find their soul mates through song — into which a penguin is born who cannot sing … But he could tap dance something fierce. The sequel takes the next logical step — the hero of the first film has a son who is dance shy. Warner Bros. has just released a teaser trailer — to coincide with the release of ‘Kung Fu Panda 2.’
The eagerly anticipated sequel to the Oscar-winning hit Happy Feet Two finds tap-dancing penguin Mumble and his pals using their smooth moves to save the penguin nation. Mumble and Gloria (voice of Pink) have started a family of their own. Mumble, The Master of Tap, has a problem because 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.
