The Madagascar animals fly back to New York City, but crash-land on an African nature reserve, where they meet others of their own kind, and Alex especially discovers his royal heritage as prince of a lion pride.
The sequel to 2005's "Madagascar", in which New York Zoo animals, Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe and Gloria the Hippo, still stranded on Madagascar, start to leave the island. All of a sudden, they land in the wilderness of Africa, where Alex meets the rest of his family, but has trouble communicating with them after spending so much time at the Central Park Zoo.Written by
The title, "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa," might appear to be misleading since Madagascar can be considered part Africa. However, whether Madagascar is strictly part of Africa is perhaps geographically debatable, and certainly politically debatable. Technically, Madagascar is an island east of Africa, separate from the mainland. Politically, there is no pan-African government, and attempts to have Madagascar integrated into the African Union have historically been abortive. Furthermore, considering the various botched plans involved in the plot, the filmmakers undoubtedly intended the subtitle "Escape 2 Africa" to be somewhat ironic. See more »

It's hard to say if is an improvement or not on the original, but it's certainly a good continuation of the story this time more focused on Alex's origin and life. The animation looks great, the humor is on point of course, and the characters with so much more development. With some great moments is a fun sequel to all ages!
