Movie Info

Disneynature's all-new feature film "Penguins" is a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he's targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after.

If there's anything cuter than an Adelie penguin, it has to be a penguin voiced by Ed Helms.

Despite issues with the Penguins narrative, its cinematography is unsurpassed.

It took 16 cinematographers three years to capture the stunning images in this doc about an Adelie penguin (anthropomorphically voiced by Ed Helms) coming of age during a freezing Antarctic spring. Go for the film's thrilling sense of wonder.

Penguins is arguably the cutesiest, most kid-friendly and relatively informationally thin of all of the films [Disneynature] has produced up to this point.
