Those "Happy Feet" Were Savion Glover's
The NYTImes is absolutely right on this: Savion Glover's credit for doing the main dancing in the animated smash "Happy Feet" should have been much more prominent. I missed this one; Glover's dancing is so distinctive I was reminded constantly throughout the movie of his presence. But indeed the closing credits should have featured him right up front. Meanwhile, I don't know why I didn't assume this, but a sequel is apparently inevitable. Knowing what director George Miller did with the sequel to "Babe" (a sequel I loved, by the way), I'd expect wholesale slaughter of the penguins to be the first act.
