This 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' sequel, 'The Squeakuel', will indeed serve as the introduction of the boys' counterparts, the Chipettes.

"Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel" will see the harmony singing chipmunks going to school and trouble coming in the form of the Chipettes. Talking to MTV News on Wednesday, November 12, co-producer Ross Bagdasarian Jr. reveals that the boys will get one interesting "out of water" experience. "The boys will wind up going to school for the first time," so he says.

Admitting that the sequel will present a different part of the boys, the son of the man who created the famous singing chipmunks further adds on what the boys will be dealing with in school. "They go to a combined middle school and high school, so there's all kinds of [human] kids around them," he explains. "You know, kids in the beginning can be cruel, so those first few days are a little bit tough for the boys."

Beside dealing with new challenge in school, the boys will also meet their female counterparts in the sequel as Bagdasarian Jr.'s producing partner Janice Karman claims. "We're introducing the Chipettes, which are the boys' counterparts. Brittany, Eleanor and Jeannette - we introduced those girls in the '80s on the Saturday morning cartoon shows. Now, they will be in the 'Squeakuel' and create a lot of tension and add a lot of fun and a lot of songs."

Meanwhile, on the casting news, Bagdasarian Jr. confesses it is possible that Jason Lee, the actor who plays David "Dave" Seville, may not be able to return for the sequel installment. "I know that Jason [Lee] wants to [come back]," he says. "He's got a conflict schedule-wise, because 'My Name Is Earl' is doing a lot of shows through the end of March, and our movie was actually picked up earlier than normal. So we're gonna be coming out Christmas Day next year, and we're hoping he [can] do it. We want to have him in, and hopefully the schedules can work out."

Despite Jason's possible leave, Bagdasarian Jr. notes that David Cross will be back as the unscrupulous record executive Ian Hawke. Adding to the casting report, Karman who voices the Chipettes in the past says that she would love to see famous actresses fill in the roles. Some of the actresses whose names are linked to the parts includes Drew Barrymore, Miley Cyrus and JoJo. More on the interview can be read via MTV.

LOL wow... I wish Karman could fill in for the Chipette's voices again. Picturing Miley Cyrus's voice in one of the three really disturbs me, especially when it's going to be high pitched. :S

I can't wait to see the sequel or should i say squekwel!!! To bad Miley Cyrus isn't in it!! She would have made it popular! Even if it is "a squeky chipmunk" roll! It would have made her more popular than ever before!!!!! I would still admire her and the fact that she turned down such a job has mad her less admirable. Still ROCK ON I cant wait 2 c the movie

All right.......Whoever thought Miley Cyrus could even sing....needs to have their ears checked.....Miley Cyrus is nothing but a wanna be, an attention whore, a disgrace to music everywhere and just a bad phase that this generation (unfortunately)has to bear...in 10 years she'll probably a long forgotten memory like yesterday's paper...her acting is crappy.....and WTF are they really going to edit her voice to make it sound even more high pitched than it already is..........GOOD GOD. The 80s are sadly gone. And everything that was good unfortunately can't ever be brought back.....those days are gone..... Now let's check the plot.......the whole "chipmunk out of water" thing just has an....illogical ring to it. Now, the part about Ian coming back for venegence by using those poor little animals they call...the chippites.. sounds very evil...I mean is he forcing them out of their natural habitat just so they can do his bidding? Is he breaking every child labour law in the book by forcing.the young ***whatever they are*** into working for him and his diabolical plans of venegence through something he calls "entertainment"....isn't that called child prostitution.....but I guees it doesn't count for them considering they're not even human...... Now something about the part where he supposedly travels the world in search of new talent doesn't seem to make sense. He supposedly has no money and just got out from jail and he's traveling the world......how? Now the part about the....semi-highschool semi-middle school background is odd. Weren't they in middle school in the 80s cartoon series. I guess these days, nothing impresses people more than teenager drama... Right!? Now what is this....they might not bring back the original actor who was playing the lead role in the first movie...........ouch, that will have to do some damage to this second movie.. Over all I guess this...hopefully not....will probably just be one of those movies where the story is that of the original version. Peace. The 80s rock!

I sore hope that Jason Lee comes back,even thuoe I'd liked the 1st one it was hularius, also he was an awosme actor. So anyway, maybe when it gets to April he can get started with the crue again. I'm dying to see the 2nd movie. I'm the #1 FAN of the CHIPMUNKS and CHIPETTES. And please,please get this movie on DVD soon.
