Penguins of Madagascar Blu-ray - DreamWorks Animation and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment

The kids and I watched Penguins of Madagascar (giveaway) earlier in the week. DreamWorks Animation and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent me the Blu-ray to review on my dad blog. As some of you know, the main characters in this animated movie are the penguins from the Madagascar series. Just like in the Madagascar movies, the penguins in this film are both annoying and funny. My kids really enjoyed the movie. However, this is one of those animated films that many parents will not enjoy as much as their children. Penguins of Madagascar is available now on Blu-ray and DVD.

Five Things About the Penguins of Madagascar Blu-ray

  1. The penguins team up with the North Wind
    In the story, an evil character by the name of Dr. Octavius Brine (also known as Dave) captures the penguins of Madagascar (Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private). The penguins escape and learn of Dave’s evil plan to make all the cute animals look hideous. To stop Dave from carrying out his plan, the penguins team up with the North Wind, which is an elite undercover inter-species task force. The North Wind consists of a gray wolf named Classified, a demolitionist harp seal named Short Fuse, a muscular polar bear named Corporal, and an intelligent snowy owl named Eva.

  2. Ken Jeong joins the cast
    Tom McGrath (Skipper), Chris Miller (Kowalski), Christopher Knights (Private), and Conrad Vernon (Rico) reprise their roles as the Penguins from the Madagascar series. The film also included the voices of John Malkovich (Dave), Benedict Cumberbatch (Classified), Ken Jeong (Short Fuse), Annet Mahendru (Eva), Peter Stormare (Corporal), Andy Richter (Mort), Danny Jacobs (King Julien), Sean Charmatz (Cricket), Werner Herzog (Documentary Filmmaker), Stephen Kearin (Pilot / Aquarium Employee), and Kelly Cooney (Mermain Penguin). Penguins of Madagascar was directed by Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith.

  3. The movie includes free toys
    For a limited time, both the DVD and Blu-ray Easter packaging of the film includes two hopping Penguin toys. They’re great items for Easter baskets.

  4. Penguins of Madagascar is rated PG
    The 92-minute animated movie is rated PG for mild action and some rude humor. I don’t recall anything inappropriate for kids. However, some of the characters were a little bit scary looking.
