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.
During the summer, I worked a lot at a movie theater. Whenever I started Harry Potter, I would see the trailer for Happy Feet Two. The music always made me happy (especially the cute baby penguins). I was excited to see Happy Feet Two.
My favorite part of Happy Feet Two were the musical numbers. Just like the previous movie, the music numbers are so fun to watch. With the great voice talent and the great penguin dancing, most of the numbers are true showstoppers. Plus, the baby penguins are SO cute!!
I was again impressed with the voice cast. I would say that my two favorite characters in this film were the two Krills named Will and Bill (voiced by Brad Pitt and Matt Damon). Some of the funniest and most memorable lines are said by these two characters. Hearing Brad Pitt singing “We Are the Champions” made me laugh.
If you are looking for a fun family movie this weekend, Happy Feet Two is a great choice!
