Storyline

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.

You got to love penguins
26 February 2020 | by CFDeeDeeSee all my reviews

I guess I watched all the penguins documentaries around .. This one was about a new species of penguins in which I've never seen a documentary about before .. Adelie penguins .. they are a lot different than emperor penguins and they are so very interesting to follow them around, the narrative was pretty funny with a cute little script which made the movie a lot funnier than a documentary should be, but I didn't mind that at all !
