Seeing Stars: Movie Premiere

PRESS RELEASE


   
World Premiere of HAPPY FEET on Sunday, November 12

Warner Bros. Pictures:

WHAT: In the great nation of Emperor Penguins, deep in Antarctica, you’re nobody unless you can sing — which is unfortunate for Mumble (ELIJAH WOOD), who is the worst singer in the world. He is born dancing to his own tune … tap dancing. Though Mumble’s mom, Norma Jean (NICOLE KIDMAN), thinks this little habit is cute, his dad, Memphis (HUGH JACKMAN), says it “just ain’t penguin.” Besides, they both know that, without a Heartsong, Mumble may never find true love.

As fate would have it, his one friend, Gloria (BRITTANY MURPHY), happens to be the best singer around. Mumble and Gloria have a connection from the moment they hatch, but she struggles with his strange “hippity-hoppity” ways. Mumble is just too different — especially for Noah the Elder (HUGO WEAVING), the stern leader of Emperor Land, who ultimately casts him out of the community.

Away from home for the first time, Mumble meets a posse of decidedly un-Emperor-like penguins — the Adelie Amigos. Led by Ramon (ROBIN WILLIAMS), the Adelies instantly embrace Mumble’s cool dance moves and invite him to party with them.

Together, Mumble sets out across vast landscapes and, after some epic encounters, proves that by being true to yourself, you can make all the difference in the world.
