All of the loveable characters are back in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. When we last saw Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe, Gloria the hippo, King Julien, Maurice and the penguins, they had been left marooned on the distant shores of Madagascar. Now, the New Yorkers have hatched a plan so crazy it just might work. With military precision, the penguins have repaired an old crashed plane. Once aloft, this unlikely crew stays airborne just long enough to make it to the wildest place of all: Africa! There, our zoo-raised crew encounters species of their own kind for the very first time. While discovering their roots, they quickly realize the differences between the concrete jungle and the heart of Africa. In support of this hilarious new sequel, we hooked up with some of the voices behind these crazy animals to learn how giraffes and hippos "Move it! Move It!" We spoke with the hilarious Cedric the Entertainer, The View's Sherri Shepard, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinket Smith, and their two directors Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath.
