My kids and I love watching movies together. I’m one of those parents who sometimes, I think, enjoys animated movies more than they do, or at least just as much. I not only enjoy the content of the movie, but I enjoy the way they interact with and the laughter and fun that happens because of it.
There really is no better way to connect with your kids than sharing an activity, and for us, movies are a big part of our lives, and the latest movie we had a chance to enjoy was “Happy Feet Two” from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
So, my kids and I ate dinner at the living room coffee table and popped in “Happy Feet Two” in the DVD player. But before I tell you about the great time we had, let me tell you a little bit about the movie and the famous voices that made it possible.
“Mumble is back, and he has a fluffy new addition to his huddle: a son named Erik! In this sequel to the Academy Award-winning Happy Feet, it’s up to Erik to find his groove in a world where singing and dancing rule.”
“Happy Feet Two” features the voices of Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, Alecia Moore (P!nk), Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Sofia Vergara and Common. What a great lineup of celebrity voices to bring the movie to life!
Take a look at the trailer below:
“Happy Feet Two” is available in a Blu-Ray 3D Combo Pack and is packed with special surprises. One of the best surprises is the “Happy Feet Two” Movie App available on the Apple iTunes store. The app is available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch and it actually syncs with the Blu-ray disc and provides enhanced content and interactive features! Imagine your child’s surprise when they see the app react to what is going on on the screen!
My daughter had a great time interacting with the characters on my iPad that she was getting to know in the film. She was very surprised that Erik would repeat what she said (and I admit I had fun playing with that feature as well), and one of her favorite parts of the app was breaking the ice that corresponds to a scene in the film where Mumble was trying to break through some ice.
We enjoyed the movie, I think my son enjoyed it more than my daughter but she was rather engrossed in the app. We all fell in love with Erik! I liked the message that the movie illustrated – Erik discovering his own individual talents and self-worth, and some of the comic relief with Robin Williams and the team of Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, helped keep it interesting and fun for all of us.
Below is a screenshot of the app as it starts to sync with the Blu-ray in order to pick up at the same place and provide the interactive surprises. There are a number of activities in this area that will keep the kids engaged during the film and bring it to life for them in such a great way. You can still explore this part of the app without a Blu-ray player and it had a lot of fun activities, it just doesn’t sync up with the scenes in the movie.
