I’m not sure what there is to say about this, but having one of my all time favourite L L Cool J tunes (mama said knock you out) from one of my favourite underrated movies (The Hard Way) , juxtaposed to fluffy little penguins acting all gangster is making me laugh. Although I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to hear that song again without seeing penguins! But seriously I can’t say this trailer gives us anymore of an idea what this films reason to exist is at all. Animated Penguins looking  cute and singing and dancig, again? But hey it worked once right?
The first Happy Feet was directed by George Miller (Mad Max, The Witches of Eastwick, Babe 2) and featured the voices of Hugh Jackman, Elijah Wood, Brittany Murphy, Nicole Kidman and Robin Williams, amongst others. It took Christmas 2006 by storm earning $1998m in North America and $384m worldwide. This time the returning Williams and Wood are joined by Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Sofia Vergara (Modern Family) and Pink. It is also in 3D, which at the moment seems to be the only selling point different fro the first film. Maybe there will be a third trailer telling us exactly why this film deserves the price of admission, but then again cute and cuddly singing penguins may be all they need.

Here’s the studio’s promo wordage...
“The sequel to "Happy Feet" the Academy Award-winning animated smash hit,
"Happy Feet Two" returns audiences to the magnificent landscape of Antartica 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 Svven-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 th penguin nations and all manner of fabulous creatures-from tiny Krill to giant Elephant Seals-to put things right

"Happy Feet Two" features the voices of Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, Alecia Moore (Pink), Sofia Vergara, Anthony LaPaglia, MAggie Szubanski and Hugo Weaving, with Brad Pitt and Matt Damon as the krill

The film is directed by George Miller, who won an Oscar as the creator of the original film "Happy Feet." Miller also co-wrote with Gary Eck, Warren Coleman and Paul Livingston.”
