ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: THE SQUEAKQUEL brings back our favourite furry brothers, Alvin (Justin Long), Simon (Matthew Gray Gubler) and Theodore (Jesse McCartney). Because of a freak accident involving Alvin and Dave Seville, they go to live with Dave Seville's cool cousin Toby and must enrol in school just like every other kid. School presents new challenges to these rock stars, like dealing with peer pressure, school sports and of course, girls!
By "girls" we mean the Chipettes - Eleanor (Amy Poehler), Jeanette (Anna Faris) and Brittany (Christina Applegate) - who are managed by Ian Hawke, the Chipmunks greedy former manager who wants to turn them into the next big thing. At the outset, there is a rivalry between the Chipettes and The Chipmunks but in the end they realize that they make great friends and a great musical team!
In 2007, ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS, a global phenomenon to generations of fans, became a live action/CGI motion picture event with a contemporary comic sensibility. In the holiday season blockbuster, which grossed over $350 million worldwide, songwriter Dave Seville transformed singing chipmunks Alvin, Simon and Theodore into pop sensations - while the out-of-control trio laid waste to Dave's home, wreaked havoc on his career, and turned Dave's once-orderly life upside-down.
