So I have just been informed that there will be a sequel to Madagascar titled "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa." The plot is as follows, the animals are on a plane back to New York when it crash lands in Africa, where they meet new animals they have never seen before. Now they need to escape back to New York. Don't get me wrong, it's an interesting plot, but i think I've heard it somewhere before. Where was that again? Oh yea. Wasn't the plot to the first movie!? The animals were stranded in Africa and had to escape!!?? Last time I checked Madagascar was in Africa! That be like if they decided to make a sequel to the Shawshank Redemption called "The Shawshank Redemption 2: Escape From Prison" where Andy Dufrane was wrongly convicted of a crime again and made a different close black friend with a lovely narrating voice who could get him things and attempted to escape. Seriously, repeating a plot exactly does not make a new movie. Glad to see the writer's strike resulted in fresh ideas.
