In a world where sequels to animated hits get churned out within what seems like a flash, the wait for Happy Feet Two has been surprisingly long. It’ll be over five years since George Miller‘s 2006 hit, which grossed nearly $400 million worldwide, hit theaters. Matt Damon and Brad Pitt join the crew this time, alongside Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, Pink, and Sofia Vergara. Having little attachment to the original, this teaser recreating a few musical numbers seems quite unfunny. Then again, this one clearly wasn’t made for me. Check it out below via Apple.
Synopsis: The sequel to the Academy Award(R) winning animated smash hit, “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.
Happy Feet Two hits theaters November 18th, 2011.
