Couldn’t you just die from all the adorableness of this film?? Disneynature celebrates Earth Day with the very first trailer for the upcoming big-screen adventure Penguins. The eighth feature film under the Disneynature brand 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.
Disneynature’s first seven theatrical releases, Earth, Oceans, African Cats, Chimpanzee, Bears, Monkey Kingdom and Born in China, are seven of the top eight highest grossing feature-length nature films to date, with Chimpanzee garnering a record-breaking opening weekend for the genre. The label was created in April 2008, its commitment to conservation is a key pillar of the label and the films empower the audience to help make a difference, with each film driving significant conservation outcomes, supporting wildlife featured in the films.
Penguins will be released on Monday, April 22nd 2019.
