The girls were really excited at the opportunity to watch Happy Feet Two. Miss Eight had seen the original film and, while Little One hadn’t, she thought the cover of the dvd looked “cute” so she wanted to see it as well!
I couldn’t believe how many stars were involved in this movie! Some of the actors involved in this movie include Elijah Woods, Robin Williams (who is a favourite of mine), Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Hank Azaria, Sofía Vergara and P!nk!
The opening dance scene in the movie is adorable and incredibly upbeat! I loved it because it included a montage of songs from my youth (such as “Rhythm Nation”) and a fun dance number! Miss Eight, who takes dance lessons, was making up her own moves to the music. Throughout the movie, the music was a real high point – I’m a huge P!nk fan so I found the music (especially “Bridge of Light”) fabulous and the accompanying scenes compelling and often really cute!
In the movie, Mumble and Gloria now have a son named Erik. Mumble feels like there is a problem, though, because Erik is afraid to dance! Faced by the pressure to dance, Erik runs away and ends up meeting The Mighty Sven (who wears probably the best sweater I’ve ever seen!) who is a penguin that can fly! Mumble feels that he can’t compete with Sven but Erik learns, as his father battles against larger forces, how amazing his dad truly is!
Personally, I loved the subplot about Will the Krill and Bill the Krill. I thought that the inclusion of this storyline (which included amazing graphics and seeing the world through the eyes of something so small) was really cool! I think the scene with Bill the Krill and the chainsaw was hilarious!
Overall, we all thought this movie was really fun for a variety of reasons. The animation and 3D effects are absolutely brilliant, the musical scenes are funny and the positive values shared through this storyline makes this movie a great one for the whole family!
