If you saw the trailer for Happy Feet 2 (complete with cringe-inducing rapping penguins ripping off Justin Timberlake with the line "get your fluffy on"), you know that this holiday season will not be safe from the eerily dance-happy flightless birds.

Happy Feet did win an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, so perhaps we shouldn't throw stones, but director George Miller is at it again with a bevy of famous actors' voices to tell the story of Mumble, the Master of Tap, and his dance-phobic son Erik.

Below are some more stills from the upcoming film. And yes, there will be tap dancing.
