studio president Alan Horn with an early rough draft of the film's screenplay, and asked them to read it while he and Miller flew back to Australia. Eventually, Mumble embarks on a quest which ultimately saves his people, wins the admiration of his community, and, most importantly, gets him the girl. Set in the cold land of Antarctica, the film follows Mumble (Wood), an emperor penguin who is able to tap dance brilliantly despite his lacking the ability to sing the heartsong to attract a soul mate.

Happy Feet is a jukebox musical, taking previously recorded songs and working them into the film's soundtrack to fit with the mood of the scene or character. Lovelace confesses they were snagged on him while swimming off the forbidden shores, beyond the land of the elephant seals. The all-star cast of voices (and songs) includes Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Brittany Murphy, Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman.Detail in darker scenes (such as the underwater sequences) is acceptable but lacking a bit of crispness. An international co-production between the United States and Australia, the film was produced at Sydney-based visual effects and animation studio Animal Logic for Warner Bros. However, seller responded quickly and professionally and apologised for this inconvenience and issued a refund and said I could keep the item.

Dialog is clear and crisp and easy to follow, and the perpetual tap-tap-tapping of the titular feet is conveyed effectively in the mix.

It retells the condensed story of Happy Feet with the help of 3D projection and sensory effects, including moving seats, wind, mist and scents. Unfortunately in Antarctica his toe-tapping talent is deemed peculiar and poor Mumble is branded an outcast by the emperor elders and is even accused of causing the mysterious fish famine which is gripping the penguin community and threatening their way of life. Such un-penguin-like behaviour eventually gets Mumble kicked out of Emperor Land and into the big, cold world.Ben Gunsberger, Lighting Supervisor and VFX Department Supervisor, says this was partly because they needed to build new infrastructure and tools.

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. The tap-dancing for Mumble in particular was provided by Savion Glover who was also co-choreographer for the dance sequences.

Some Christians have also considered the film to be anti-Christian (or antireligious in general) due to the imagery and behaviours of various characters.

The animation is invested heavily in motion capture technology, with the dance scenes acted out by human dancers.Recently, we've done several changes to help out this wiki, from deleting empty pages, improving the navigation, adding a rules page, as well as merging film infoboxes.
