Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

This is one of those sequels that is heaps better than the original.

After the effortless recap, the ensemble from the first film split-up to each follow their own journey, so there are several strong storylines in here, along with gags, gags, and more gags. The penguins are still my favourite characters, so it's good to learn that they now have their own spin-off show.

The only character who really gets short-changed is the giraffe, who falls in love with the hippo character. Basically any boy for whom Melman was their favourite character from the first film will be disappointed by these scenes.

The animation is spectacular on the big screen, (I wish I'd seen it in IMAX now) and the music still warms my heart. Looking forward to the next one.
