In the great nation of Emperor
Penguins, deep in Antarctica, you’re nobody unless you can
sing—which is unfortunate for Mumble (ELIJAH WOOD), who is
the worst singer in the world. He is born dancing to his own
Though Mumble’s mom, 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 Adelies 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 voiced by 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.
