"Ocean's Eleven" co-stars Matt Damon and Brad Pitt are re-teaming for the "Happy Feet" sequel, reports Movieline.

According to Movieline: “Matt Damon and Brad Pitt haven’t made a movie together since “Ocean’s Thirteen,” but Movieline hears that the two actors have both been cast in an upcoming film directed by George Miller. No, not Miller’s 'Mad Max' reboot starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. I’m warning you, temper your expectations a little.”

“Pitt and Damon will both be voicing characters in Miller’s Happy Feet 2, a 3-D sequel to his 2006 animated film. They’ll be joining original cast members who include Robin Williams and Elijah Wood.”

The pair started doing voice work for the sequel last week but the actors’ roles are unknown at this time.

Sometimes, when big-name actors lend their voices to animated features, things turn out not so great, such as when Robert DeNiro and Will Smith did “Shark Tale,” which in my opinion was a terrible animated film.

But “Happy Feet” actually was pretty good, and I think the addition of Pitt and Damon will be great for the project. I’m sure they both will still look great as penguins, or whatever type of animals they end up voicing.

“Happy Feet 2” is currently set for release on November 28, 2011.

    Unlike most of the reviews I've seen, I really liked Happy Feet and so I'm quite excited with the news that it'll have a sequel. I'm wary though as most sequels are unable to match up to the original, especially animated movies. The only franchise that was able to sustain the original's quality, at least in my opinion, is Toy Story.
