The Screen Guide

HAPPY FEET is set deep in Antarctica. Into the land of the Emperor penguins where each needs a heartsong to attract a soul mate, a penguin is born who cannot sing. Our hero Mumble, son of Memphis and Norma Jean, is the worst singer in the world… however, as it happens, he is a brilliant tap dancer! The story of a misfit who finds a beat all his own, HAPPY FEET is a toe-tapping comedy-adventure for all ages.
