Cinematical has received some pretty cool behind the scenes images for the upcoming Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, which is a sequel to the highly popular Madagascar, and stars (in voice form) folks like Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sacha Baron Cohen and more. This time around, our animal friends (and resident zoo-raised New Yorkers) find themselves lost in the vast plains of Africa where they'll encounter more members of their own species for the very first time. But will the open landscapes and freedom dissuade them from trying to return home to the Central Park Zoo?
We have three different galleries for you below, with each taking one particular still image and showing how it goes from nothing to a whole lotta something. Each has captions for you to follow along in the process -- and when you're done, let us know what you think. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa hits theaters on November 7.
