I saw the trailer for Happy Feet while waiting for the latest Harry Potter movie to start. As I sat amongst the Potter-heads in the darkened theater, and this was playing, I had no idea just what I was looking at.
After seeing it, and then again online after returning home, I can’t help but think that this is due, at least in part, to the smash success of March of the Penguins. I could be wrong, but I would be surprised if I was completely off.
Anyway, the trailer is more like a music video with animated penguins moving to Jamaican styled music. Penguins line dancing, tap dancing, ballroom dancing, and other styles of dancing. It was kind of bizarre.
Words are escaping me, this was so utterly weird to me. At the same time, I have watched the trailer a number of times now, and each time I am mesmerized. Like a small child in front of whatever costumed animal is popular.
I wonder if the movie will be any good? Don’t really want to wait until next November!
Check out the trailer for yourself at the official Warner Brothers site.
