In the great nation of Emperor Penguins, deep in Antarctica, you’re nobody
unless you can sing – which is unfortunate for Mumble (voice of Elijah Wood),
who is the worst singer in the world. He is born dancing to his own tune…tap
Though Mumble’s mum, 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 Adelie’s instantly embrace Mumble’s cool dance moves and invite him to
party with them. In Adelie Land, Mumble seeks the counsel of Lovelace the Guru
(also Robin Williams), a crazy-feathered Rockhopper penguin who will answer any
of life’s questions for the price of a pebble.
Together with Lovelace and the Amigos, 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.
