The sequel to “Happy Feet,” the Academy Award®- 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" is a delight! The film consists of vivid colors, animation, energetic songs and great actors lending their voices and talents to the movie. Kids will love it and parents will appreciate the lesson of believing in one's self and helping others.
When Mumble's penguin son Erik is picked on for being different, he runs away. It is up to Mumble (Elijah Wood) to help him realize he can go far just as he is. Erik looks up to The Mighty Sven, a flying penguin. Mumble doesn't think he can compete with that but when Mumble helps the other penguins out, and even an elephant seal, Erik begins to realize his dad is special in his own way.
With actors Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and other well-known thespians lending their voices to the film, you can rest assured that "Happy Feet Two" is a lively and imaginative movie which the entire family can watch and enjoy together. This one is not to be missed!
