Wilbur the pig is scared of the end of the season, because he knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table. He hatches a plan with Charlotte, a spider that lives in his pen, to ensure that this will never happen.
After Babe's great victory in the shepherding contest, Farmer Arthur Hoggett turns down all offers to make money with his pig's talents. But when he gets hurt severely in the well, his wife has to take up farming. She does her best but cannot meet the bank's requirements, which results in the necessity of getting back to Babe. Soon, Esme Hoggett is sitting in a plane headed for "the" city. There, Babe unwillingly causes deep trouble. He has to stay with Mrs. Hoggett in the only hotel in town that accepts pets. Friendly neighbours send officials who catch all animals from the hotel: Cats, dogs, chimpanzees and many others. Babe, who managed to stay free, decides to help his new friends and gets unexpected help - not only by Ferdinand, who flew all the way to the city. Written by

The view from Babe's window at the animal hotel includes the Hollywood sign, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Sydney Opera House, the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, the Rio de Janiero statue of Christ, the World Trade Center, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, what appears to be a Moscow cathedral, and possibly other famous landmarks. In this vista, the Christ statue overlooks the Hollywood sign, and a helicopter and airplane can be seen eerily close to the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center (though flying away from them). Signage in the film indicates the city Babe visits is called "Metropolis", which has a Metropolis Gun Club and Metropolis Institute of Medicine. See more »
When Esme's suit is fully inflated, you can see that the front part of the pants are still there. In the next shot directly after that, when Babe and Ferdy come running, you can clearly see that the front part is not there, even though she is in the exact same position. See more »
What a horrible horrible travesty. NOT for children or anyone else
As a *huge* huge fan of the original Babe, I was hoping for at least a mildly amusing sequel. What I got was a disgusting waste of money on useless effects and pointless action scenes. The plot was so random & aimless, I'm not even sure what the point was. We actually walked out of the movie after an hour, I just couldn't bear to watch them ruin what was a perfectly good franchise. There were scenes that upset me to the point of near-tears and I am an adult. I think taking a child to see this film would be a huge mistake. The pointless vilification of Animal Control was entirely unnecessary and the gratuitous slapstick was entirely useless. Babe 2 was an utter mockery of what made the first film great, and should have been released straight to landfill.
