Dreamworks’ ‘The Penguins Of Madagascar’ Spring Into Action

12 June 2014 11:18 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Madagascar trilogy became one of Dreamworks’ biggest cash cows, despite starring a bunch of animals that weren’t cows. As always in these animated features, there were a select group of supporting characters that completely stole the show. Shrek 2 had Puss ‘N Boots and Despicable Me had those Minions, but for the Madagascar franchise it was the quartet of sinister espionage penguins that captured everybody’s hearts. The guys already had their own TV show, but now it’s time they journeyed to the big screen in a madcap caper of their own, The Penguins Of Madagascar.

From the looks of the trailer, it seems as though the penguins, Skipper, Kowalski, Private and  Rico, are hired by an elite intelligence agency of animals. The penguins worked very well in their smaller roles in the Madagascar films, and in the short episodes of their TV series, but do they »

The new Dreamworks animated comedy 'The Penguins Of Madagascar' gets a silly first trailer

11 June 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Somewhere, right now, my kids are losing their minds. I'm not particularly fond of the "Madagascar" films, but they're fine, I guess. This is the side of Dreamworks that I'm less fond of, the super-jokey frantic-to-be-funny side. Coming on the heels of the beautiful, heartfelt "How To Train Your Dragon 2," it feels like a far more crass decision. That sort of sums up exactly what's wrong with Dreamworks as a studio. They are capable of greatness, but they seem to aim for the "farts are funny" crowd more often than not. The Penguins were at their funniest when they were supporting players, characters that the filmmakers could use to punctuate a few jokes here and there, but it almost never ends well when you take characters like this and push them center-stage. I would imagine there was a time when ABC strongly considered giving Lenny & Squiggy their own sitcom, »

11 June 2014 1:33 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The penguins also starred in a spinoff television series that debuted on Nickelodeon in 2008, which tied in to the release of Madagascar 2.

Now, the popular penguin foursome are taking the big screen by storm in their own animated feature film: The Penguins of Madagascar.

The first full-length trailer for The Penguins of Madagascar, released by Moviefone, shows Skipper (Tom McGrath), Kowalski (Chris Miller), Rico (John Dimaggio), and Private (Christopher Knights) meeting another espionage team: the North Wind.

Penguins Of Madagascar Trailer Sneaks Online

11 June 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

On Monday, we had the first look at new pictures of those pesky Penguins Of Madagascar (not their official full title, just the name of the film). To follow that up, feed your eyes and ears with the initial trailer for the animated adventure, which feels like a teaser  but features plenty of the waddling wonders doing what they do best – causing chaos. In this spin-off from DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar franchise, Skipper (Tom McGrath), Kowalski (Chris Miller), Rico (John Dimaggio) and Private (Christopher Knights) join forces with a super-secret animal organization called North Wind to fight a many-tentacled menace named Dave, an octopus who has made it his mission to kill off all the penguins. He is voiced by John Malkovich, because who else do you hire to tackle a multi-limbed sea creature? North Wind's leader, meanwhile, is a wolf known only as Classified, and is voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch. »

DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar has somehow spawned two sequels, a short film, two holiday specials and a spinoff Nickelodeon series called The Penguins of Madagascar since 2005. That Nickelodeon series, centered on the escapades of the four paramilitary-like penguins who became fan favorites after appearing in Madagascar, is now making the trip to the big screen in a movie called Penguins of Madagascar.

The first trailer for the animated caper, due out in November, has hit the web, and you can check it out right here:

The film apparently doesn’t have much to do with the animated series, which was set largely in the Central Park Zoo. In this feature-length outing, the Penguins (voiced by Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, John Dimaggio and Christopher Knights) encounter an elite interspecies task force called the North Wind which is dedicated to helping animals in peril.

Set for a November 26 release date, DreamWorks has revealed the first The Penguins of Madagascar trailer, giving you a first look at the Madagascar spin-off, featuring the only characters from the Madagascar movies worth laughing at. Question is, will this be a case of "too much of a good thing"c I didn't watch the trailer myself, but apparently Benedict Cumberbatch voices a wolf named Classified who leads a covert protective force of animals that includes the explosives expert Short Fuse (Ken Jeong), intelligence analyst Eva (Annet Mahendru), and Norwegian bear Corporal (Peter Stormare). Also in the voice cast you have John Malkovich, Andy Richter, Tom McGrath, Chris Miller and Christopher Knights.
