Dreamworks Animation has released the trailer to the upcoming computer animated comedy movie, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted. This is the third installment of the Madagascar series and is the sequel to Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.
Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippopotamus, and Melman the Giraffe set out to return to New York after escaping to Africa. Dependent on the mechanical know-how of the notorious monkeys, their plan inevitably goes awry and they find themselves stranded in Monte Carlo, where they try to escape Europe from animal control by joining up with a traveling circus by chance. Led by the venerable tiger Vitali, the animal-centered circus has seen better days. During the course of a tour through a series of European cities that ends in a fabulous big top in the heart of London, Alex, Marty, Gloria, and Melman help Vitaly, Gia the jaguar, and Stefano the sea lion, rediscover their passion for show business and reinvent circus performance.
The movie is directed by Eric Darnell and Conrad Vernon and feature the voices of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith and David Schwimmer. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted is set to open in cinemas June 2012.
