Catch the HBO Blockbuster of the Month 'Madagascar Escape 2 Africa'
MUMBAI: You got to move it, move it! Sounds familiar? This is the track that had us swinging since 2008 and it’s BACK! With Madagascar - Escape 2 Africa, as the HBO Blockbuster of the Month.

The real party animals are back with more to move, more to shake it.

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa brings back the best elements of Madagascar, including the familiar creatures: Alex the lion (voiced by Ben Stiller), Marty the zebra (Chris Rock), Gloria the hippo (Jada Pinkett-Smith), Melman the giraffe (David Schwimmer), and the loony lemur- King Julien (Sacha Baron Cohen) as they return for more adventures. Building on the characters we grew to love in Madagascar, the writers have added a herd of new creatures that are just as fully fleshed out and entertaining. The returning members of the voice cast are terrific with the newbies like Alec Baldwin complimenting the familiar voices well.

This Madagascar sequel picks up right where the 2005 film left it, with the Central Park Zoo animals preparing to leave Madagascar to return to the Big Apple. With a crazy group of penguins they are left marooned on the distant shores of Madagascar. They discover their families and where they actually belong to. Keeping the hope alive to return to New York Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo have hatched a plan so crazy it just might work!

The wacky cast of characters, a meatier storyline and spectacular animation, not to forget the humour and creativity, makes Madagascar: 2 the second biggest animated film ever. Madagascar 2 not only outshines its predecessor, but leaves one looking forward to #3!!

Catch this zippy sequel on HBO on 26th February at 9:00pm.

STARRING: Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Sacha Baron Cohen

GENRE: Animation / Adventure

Character Description:

Alex (Voiced by Ben Stiller) is the Lion who as a cub was called Alakay and was named Alex in New York Central Park Zoo where he grew up. Alex is a lion who is more interested in dancing rather than hunting!

Marty (Voiced by Chris Rock) is the Zebra who lived at the Central Park Zoo, and is a good friend of Alex, in the movie.

Melman (Voiced by David Schwimmer) is a half-anthropomorphic giraffe, who is somewhat of a hypochondriac having doses of medicine for meals and doctor's appointments frequently. Text formatting

Gloria (Voiced by Jada Pinkett Smith) is the Hippo who has no issues with her self-image. She is self-confident, sassy and sweet.

King Julien (Voiced by Sacha Baron Cohen) is a conceited, fun-loving Ring-tailed Lemur.

Some interesting facts about the movie:

· Bernie Mac's last animated feature. This movie was dedicated to him.

· A specially-made segment featuring Alex, Gloria, Melman, Marty, and the penguins was used as part of a 2008 McDonald's restaurant commercial.

· Alex's family birth-mark is shaped like the continent of Africa, including the island of Madagascar.

· The hippopotamus who asks if Alex is dancing about a plane crash is voiced by Stacy Ferguson, better known by her stage name, Fergie.
