Thanks to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, I’m giving a Happy Feet Two Blu-Ray 3D Combo Pack on my dad blog. Happy Feet 2 will be available on Blu-Ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and digital download next Tuesday (March 13th). The release of Happy Feet Two ties in with the recently updated Happy Feet Two Movie App. The latest version of the free app now synchs with the movie. I used the app while watching the movie over the weekend and I thought the synching of the app content with the movie was pretty neat. The app essentially gives you a second screen to view content and do activities related to the scene in the movie. For instance, during some of the singing scenes, the app displayed sing-a-long lyrics for the song. Unfortunately, the app didn’t make us sing any better.
You can synch the Happy Feet Two Movie App with the movie in two ways. If you have a Wi-Fi Blu-ray player, you can synch the app by selecting Play Movie with Happy Feet Two Movie App Second Screen option in the Blu-ray menu and pressing the Second Screen button on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. If you don’t have a Wi-Fi Blu-ray player, you can still synch the app by pressing the start listening option on your Apple device to use the movie audio to synch the app. This is actually the option that worked for me because the Wi-Fi connection on my Blu-ray player is flakey. The second option also works with regular DVD players. Note: you need to download version two of the Happy Feet Two Movie App. The previous version of the app does not include the second screen option for synching the app.
The kids and I actually saw a movie screening of Happy Feet Two last year. My kids loved it and I thought the 3D effects were pretty cool. Rather than writing another review of Happy Feet Two, I’m just going to go over the extra stuff on the discs. The Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack and the Blu-ray Combo Pack of Happy Feet Two include the following special features:
Helping Penguins and Pals
This is an interesting feature about the marine animals in the movie.
How to Draw a Penguin
The instructions are not as detailed as they could have been, but by the end of this feature, I was able to draw something that actually looked like a penguin.
I Taut I Saw a Putty Tat
Here’s a fun clip with Tweety bird and Sylvester the cat. This new Looney Tunes short is actually a musical. And like usual, Sylvester is still trying to eat Tweety.
This feature includes sing-a-long songs of The Mighty Sven, Bridge of Light, and Papa Om Mow Mow.
Running with Bodice
This bonus feature includes some commentary and an unseen clip of the movie.
The Amazing Voice of Happy Feet Two
A behind the scene look at the voices in the movie. Some of the stars I remember seeing in this feature are Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Pink, Robin Williams, and Elijah Wood.
Pink’s New Song
This feature includes commentary by Pink about the song she wrote and sang for the movie. I think it was called Bridge of Light.
UltraViolet Digital Copy
Lets you access a digital copy of the movie from a cloud to watch on many different devices. UltraViolet Digital Copies can be downloaded for offline viewing and streamed to computers and Android, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices.
