About this deal

He has no ability to sing as the other penguins do, although he has a different talent, tap dancing. The tap-dancing for Mumble in particular was provided by Savion Glover who was also co-choreographer for the dance sequences. Mumble leaves the flock and has a series of adventures, making friends along the way, including a posse of street-smart little penguins, the "Adelie Amigos" led by the insufferably insouciant Ramon (voiced quite humorously by Robin Williams). check quotation syntax] Happy Feet was also partially inspired by earlier documentaries such as the BBC's Life in the Freezer. The depth of field created when the whales swim past the focal chunk of ice -- not to mention the introductory moments when we see the mammoth orca standing upright before it capsizes onto the block -- creates a near-unparalleled level of realism.

The animation is invested heavily in motion capture technology, with the dance scenes acted out by human dancers. There are some nice extras on the DVD, including a newly completed animation sequence that had been deleted from the original storyline - "Mumble Meets a Blue Whale.

Reminiscent of films such as Baz Luhrmann's " Moulin Rouge," "Happy Feet" effectively incorporates full songs and snippets from many popular tunes from the 1970s to today. Following Mumble blends stripped-down, mundane exposition on the "beat of a different drummer" theme with a slathering of awe-struck gawking at Animal Logic's great animation work, which only carries it to a certain point.

Detail in darker scenes (such as the underwater sequences) is acceptable but lacking a bit of crispness. Happy Feet is a 2006 animated jukebox musical comedy film directed and produced by George Miller and written by Miller, John Collee, Judy Morris, and Warren Coleman. Mumble exhaustingly pursues it alone, eventually washing up on the shore of Florida, where he is rescued and kept at Sea World with Magellanic penguins. They're bold, relevant messages, but they thicken the material much too quick -- for both child audiences and adults. French and Spanish EX tracks are also available, as are optional English, French, and Spanish subtitles.All adrift in a lonely hostile world, he meets The Amigos, a wise-cracking comedy crew of Latino Adelie penguins led by Ramon (Williams), who think Mumble's smooth dance moves are 'accidentally cool' and a great way to impress the chicas.

It earned the recipient of the inaugural BAFTA Award for Best Animated Film, and the fourth non- Disney or Pixar film to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Happy Feet' (2006) tells the story of Mumble (voice of Elijah Wood), a young emperor penguin who struggles to perform the heartsong which is crucial to finding a life partner. Lovelace has the plastic rings of a six pack entangled around his neck, saying that they have been bestowed upon him by mystic beings.After a long and secluded confinement in addition to fruitlessly trying to communicate with the humans, he nearly succumbs to madness.

Set in the strange and beautiful world first explored in the 2005 documentary MARCH OF THE PENGUINS, George Miller's HAPPY FEET tells the story of Mumble (Elijah Wood), a tone-deaf Emperor Penguin who is unable to sing his 'heart song', the ritual required to win a mate (in this case, his beloved Gloria, voiced by Brittany Murphy). Another animated sequence - "A Happy Feet Moment" is also included as well as a piece featuring virtual choreographer Savion Glover, whose tap-dancing powers the sonics of the film's Happy Feet, as well as being the model for the animation. It was nominated for the Annie Award for Best Animated Feature and the Saturn Award for Best Animated Film, both losing to Cars.
