Mumble's son, Erik, is struggling to realize his talents in the Emperor Penguin world. Meanwhile, Mumble and his family and friends discover a new threat their home -- one that will take everyone working together to save them.
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

A billboard on the city skyline reads "Eternity." This refers to the eccentric mission of reformed petty criminal Arthur Stace, who in 1932 began anonymously chalking the single word "Eternity" in copperplate style on footpaths around Sydney. He continued until his death in 1967. ("Eternity" also was featured in the finale of Sydney's fireworks display on New Years Day 2000.) See more »
When Esme hits the guest on the ladder, she is wearing shoes, which are visible. In the next shot, she has bare feet. See more »
It is unfortunate that this movie is being marketed as a children's movie. It's having a tough time at the box office against its more heavily cross-merchandised competitors. So many people will not be able to discover that "Babe: Pig in the City" is truly a remarkable and totally unique achievement in film. It would be an injustice if this movie were not nominated for the Best Production Design Oscar, because its visuals are stunning. Babe is the center of the story, but he's not the main focus. Wonderful voice acting gives life to a motley bunch of chimps, dogs, and cats. But I've gone on too long. Go see this movie before it leaves the theatres!
