Lord of the Rings' Elijah Wood and Oscar® winner Robin Williams reprise their animated roles in this sequel to the Academy Award®-winning blockbuster that snowballed a global box-office north of $375 million. Once again, written and directed by acclaimed Aussie filmmaker George Miller (Babe, Mad Max films), the latest chapter of the penguin tale returns audiences to the magnificent landscape of Antarctica, reuniting us with the world's most famous tap-dancing penguin, Mumble (Wood), the love of his life, Gloria, and their old friends Ramon and Lovelace (Williams). Mumble and Gloria now have a son of their own, Erik (E.G. Daly), who is struggling to find his own particular talents in the colony. But new dangers are threatening the penguin nation, and it's going to take everyone working (and dancing) together to save them.

Critics Consensus: The animation is as eye-popping as ever, but Happy Feet Two's narrative is too noisily incoherent to recapture the Oscar-winning charm of its predecessor.

Penguin sequel has fun musical numbers, a few mild scares.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this sequel to 2006's Academy Award-winning animated adventure Happy Feet features many of the same environmental and family lessons for audiences. Global warming's impact on the penguin characters is again addressed; the peril that comes with natural disasters may frighten the youngest of viewers -- as could some scenes with large/menacing elephant seals and predatory skua birds. There are also a few mild innuendos from the penguin voiced by Robin Williams, and some viewers may interpret the relationship between two male krill as having gay undertones, particularly when Bill suggests they start a swarm of their own. But ultimately this is a tale of family, friendship, and what it means to find your individual voice -- your own special gift.
