In the highly-anticipated sequel to MADAGASCAR, the number one family comedy of 2005, Alex (Ben Stiller), Marty (Chris Rock), Melman (David Schwimmer), Gloria (Jada Pinkett Smith), King Julien (Sacha Baron Cohen), Maurice (Cedric The Entertainer), the penguins (Tom McGrath, Christopher Knights, Chris Miller) and the chimps (Conrad Vernon) find themselves marooned on the distant shores of Madagascar.
In the face of this obstacle, the New Yorkers have hatched a plan so crazy it just might work. With military precision, the penguins have repaired an old crashed plane - well sort of. Once the first flight of Air Penguin is aloft, this unlikely crew stays airborne just long enough to make it to the wildest place of all—the vast plains of Africa, where the members of our New York City zoo-raised crew encounter species of their own kind for the very first time. 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.
