Since their inception, Disneynature feature films have been closely tied to Earth Day, so it is only fitting that today (Earth Day), Disney announced their next Disneynature movie: ‘Penguins.’ Here is what we know so far:
Disneynature Penguins Description:
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. From the filmmaking team behind Bears and Chimpanzee, Disneynature’s Penguins opens in theaters nationwide in time for Earth Day 2019. (source)
Update 1/20/19: Disneynature will be making a donation to the Wildlife Conservation Network for every ticket sold to Penguins during its opening week (April 17-23, 2019).
Update 2/26/19: It has been announced that actor Ed Helms (The Office and The Hangover) will narrate the movie.
