Alvin and the Chipmunks Are Lost at Sea in the New ‘Chipwrecked’ Trailer

I suppose if I was a tiny, anthropomorphic (and musically inclined) chipmunk, I, too, would send asunder my adoptive father’s cruise vacation. Who among you cannot say the same? But the degree to which Alvin (Justin Long), Simon (Matthew Gray Gubler), Theodore (Jesse McCartney) and their female counterparts (Christina Applegate, Anna Faris and Amy Poehler) perform this task is inequivocal. Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked takes our tamian heroes and tosses them from a luxurious getaway onto an uncharted island filled with dangers, prompting Dave (Jason Lee) to set out to rescue them. Of course, Alvin seems to undergo a few personal changes along the way, realizing just how much trouble he causes his family, and perhaps turns over a new leaf.

As with the last trailer, this one culminates with a Lady Gaga songsation that’s…a little bit of a force to power through.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked will chip its way into our hearts on December 16. And check the videos below the trailer to experience the Alvin and the Chipmunks of generations past.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
