As someone who hasn't really enjoyed the Madagascar films much, after seeing some footage from the DreamWorks Animation spin-off at Comic-Con a couple weeks ago, the Penguins of Madagascar doesn't actually look half bad. Now a new trailer shows off more of the action adventure that sees the titular Arctic birds leading a double life as spies, now forced to team up with a sect of agents known as North Wind (led by a wolf voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch). We also get some glimpses of John Malkovich as the octopus villain Dr. Octavius Brine. I might actually be looking forward to this one in the fall. Watch below! Here's the new trailer for DreamWorks Animation's Penguins of Madagascar from Apple: You can also watch the first teaser trailer for Penguins of Madagascar right here.

With the release of How to Train Your Dragon 2 this weekend, DreamWorks Animation is ready to get the hype machine started on their spin-off The Penguins of Madagascar. The animation studio just decided to move up the release of the film to November, swapping dates with their original film Home, and now we finally get a taste of the comedic spy adventure.

When Mitch Hurwitz and Netflix first hooked up in 2013 – for new episodes of his award-winning show, Arrested Development – it seemed like the perfect match. Though he started out working for regular TV networks, on series such as The Golden Girls and The John Larroquette Show, those standard broadcasting channels – with all their restrictive regulations – were never able to provide him with the platform he needed to really let his flag fly. Even Arrested Development – the creation for which he is most famous – had to fight to remain seated at the Fox table. Thankfully, those days are gone now that Hurwitz has signed a multi-year deal with the streaming market leader - giving the writer/producer/director the space he needs to fully unfurl his creative wings.
