Synopsis
This sequel to the critically acclaimed original picture might not have been quite the pig at the box office that its predecessor was, but it was one of 1998's most charming, entertaining works. This family-friendly adventure takes the oinker of the title, along with Ferdy and Mrs. Hoggett, beyond the confines of the farm's fences and into the great wide world. It's up to the trio to save the farm, and they just might be able to do it. James Cromwell returns to the role of the farmer, and George Miller (HAPPY FEET) directs.
