Call us softies, but we loved ‘Happy Feet.’ Can you blame us — it’s a cartoon about dancing penguins, it’s scientifically designed to be adorable. Beyond the cute animals, the Oscar-winning movie had a lot going for it; it’s use of musical choreography and lush animation were so fun to watch on the big screen, that we’re genuinely excited to see what’s in store for ‘Happy Feet Two.’
Elijah Wood returns as the voice of Mumbles, the tap-dancing hero of the first movie, and now a father to a young penguin, named Erik. The baby bird doesn’t take much after his old man, especially in his complete fear of dancing. But when their Antarctic paradise is threatened, father and son must team up with creatures great and small (Tiny Krill! Giant Elephant Seals! Flying penguins!) to save their kingdom.
We have your first look at the poster for ‘Happy Feet Two’ after the jump.
‘Happy Feet Two’ is scheduled for release on November 18, in both 2D and 3D screenings. Call us crazy, but this might be of those rare movies that are actually worth seeing in 3D.
