PRESS STATEMENT FROM WARNER BROS:
"The sequel to Happy Feet, the Academy Award®-winning animated smash hit, Warner Bros.' Happy Feet 2 returns audiences to the magnificent landscape of Antarctica in superb 3D, both in IMAX theaters and digital cinemas everywhere.
"In Happy Feet 2, 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 directed by George Miller, who won an Oscar® as the creator of the original Happy Feet. The film features the voices of Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, Alecia Moore (P!nk), Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Sofia Vergara, Common, Hugo Weaving, Magda Szubanski, Anthony LaPaglia, Richard Carter and Benjamin "Lil P-Nut" Flores, Jr.
