A new trailer has gone online for George Miller’s Happy Feet Two. I know I’m not the target audience for these movies but I find penguins adorable. Theoretically, I should be willing to give the Happy Feet flicks the benefit of the doubt on that alone. But the animators for the Happy Feet films made a serious error when they decided to give the penguins human eyes. The characters all exist in a weird middle ground between trying to have animated expressions and still remain realistic-looking. The movies are made worse by the having penguins squeak out hip-hop songs. But none of that matters because the movie will probably make hundreds of millions of dollars. Hooray.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer, which doesn’t tell you what the movie is about (Mumble and his son have to find an escape route when the penguin population is covered in ice). The film features the voices of Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, Alecia Moore (P!nk), Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Sofia Vergara, Hugo Weaving, Richard Carter, Common, Magda Szubanski, and Anthony LaPagila. Happy Feet Two opens in 3D on November 18th.
