It is directed by Eric Darnell and written by Etan Cohen. It was produced by DreamWorks Animation and was released on November 7, 2008.[1] The film, distributed to theaters by Paramount Pictures, is about the characters of the first film starting the plane on Madagascar, and then landing in Africa, and meeting some of Alex's family.[1] The film stars the voices of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, David Schwimmer, Sacha Baron Cohen, Cedric the Entertainer and Andy Richter.[1] Also guest voicing includes Alec Baldwin,, the late Bernie Mac, and Sherri Shepherd.[2] The previous title was "Madagascar: The Crate Escape", which was featured on a trailer with Ben Stiller.
