Madagascar - Escape 2 Africa

In the highly-anticipated sequel to "Madagascar"-the number one family comedy of 2005, all of the loveable characters are back Alex the lion (voiced by Ben Stiller), Marty the zebra (voiced by Chris Rock), Melman the giraffe (voiced by David Schwimmer) and Gloria the hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith), King Julien (voiced by Sacha Baron Cohen), Maurice (voiced by Cedric The Entertainer) and the penguins (voiced by Tom McGrath, Christopher Knights and Chris Miller), and the chimps (voiced by Conrad Vernon) in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.

The New Yorkers come up with a crazy plan that seems like it just might work. When the penguins repair an old crashed plane, kind of, Air Penguin takes flight. Unfortunately, they stay airborne just long enought to find themselves marooned on the distant shores in the wildest place of all, the vast plains of Africa Madagascar, where our zoo-raised crew encounter species of their own kind for the very first time. While discovering their roots, they quickly find the differences between the concrete jungle and the heart of Africa. Despite long-lost relatives, romantic rivals and scheming hunters, Africa seems like a great place...but is it better than their Central Park home?

Also along for the rambunctious ride with the original cast is returning cast member Andy Richter, back again as sad-eyed mouse lemur Mort, along with new additions that include Bernie Mac as Alex's dad, Zuba, the alpha male of the pride; Sherri Shepherd as Alex's Mom, thrilled to have her long-lost son back home; Alec Baldwin as Makunga, who prides himself as the next alpha of the pride; and will.i.am as ultra-stud hippo and watering hole lothario Moto Moto.
DreamWorks SKG Presents "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa," a Paramount Pictures release directed by Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath, who helmed the original "Madagascar," which earned more than $500,000,000 in worldwide box office. The screenplay is written by Etan Cohen, Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath. It is produced by Mireille Soria ("Madagascar") and Mark Swift ("Bee Movie"). This film has been rated PG for some mild crude humor.
