DreamWorks Animation have planned on developing yet another "Madagascar" film. On Wednesday, August 13, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg revealed the studio's plan on a sequel to "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa".
Unearthing the intention during a preview of "Escape 2 Africa", the studio executive expressed his hope on seeing the zoo animals group back to New York. "Escape 2 Africa is the second chapter in one story," he explained. "There is at least one more chapter. We ultimately want to see the characters make it back to New York."
A sequel to the original "Madagascar", "Escape 2 Africa" is an animated comedy adventure sequel of a group of spoiled zoo animals, Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo, stranded in the middle of nowhere. Flying away from the Madagascar island to get back home, the friends will face a new adventure as they crash land in the rural plain of Africa.
This second movie comes from director Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath. The characters will be voiced by a list of comedic actors, including Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sacha Baron Cohen, Cedric the Entertainer and the late Bernie Mac. It will hit the big screen on November 7.
