Full Cast List Announced for "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa"

Posted on Thursday, June 5th, 2008 3:29 PM by Scott Jentsch

Dreamworks Animation has announced the full cast listing for the upcoming animated comedy Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa which will open in theaters November 7, 2008.

Joining David Schwimmer, Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sacha Baron Cohen, Cedric The Entertainer, and Andy Richter from the first movie are Sherri Shepherd (from TV's "The View"), Alec Baldwin, and Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas.

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is the sequel to the 2005 hit, Madagascar, which grossed over $532 million in worldwide box office and was the #1 animated film of 2005.

In this installment, Alex, Marty, Melman, Gloria, King Julien, Maurice and the penguins and the chimps find themselves marooned on the distant shores of Madagascar. In the face of this obstacle, the New Yorkers have hatched a plan so crazy it just might work.

With military precision, the penguins have repaired an old crashed plane -- sort of. Once aloft, this unlikely crew stays airborne just long enough to make it to the wildest place of all -- the vast plains of Africa, where the members of our zoo-raised crew encounter species of their own kind for the very first time. Africa seems like a great place ... but is it better than their Central Park home?

We have two photos from the movie in addition to the poster artwork, which can be seen in their large-size glory on our Photo Galleries page for the movie. I wasn't able to find a trailer yet, but that will probably be coming soon as Dreamworks starts the publicity engine for the Winter blockbuster season.
