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.
