Happy Feet New Zealand Premiere

WHAT: HAPPY FEET, the latest animated blockbuster movie, premieres in New Zealand at Sky City Cinemas Newmarket Auckland on Saturday December 16. The cinemas are being transformed into an “Antarctic Boogie Wonderland” in a special event for children of all ages!

The film which features the voices of Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Nicole Kidman, Brittany Murphy and Hugh Jackman has already grossed over US $100million at the US box office.

Directed by Australian George Miller, (Babe) HAPPY FEET is not only a penguin “singing and dancing extravaganza” but features ground breaking state of the art animation that has lifted the bench mark in computer generated movie making.

WHO: New Zealand television, media and sporting celebrities plus heaps of kids!! The event also features local tap dancing school students in their own penguin dance!! Plus a special appearance by Mumble.

WHEN: Saturday 16 December, 2006
