Watch: One More Trailer for 'Penguins of Madagascar' Rejects Nature
"Tiny and helpless, the baby penguins are frozen with fear." Who would have ever thought that Werner Herzog would lend his voice to DreamWorks Animation film? It sounds like an impossible task, and yet here we are with the filmmaker seemingly parodying himself as a documentary director shooting footage of the Penguins of Madagascar as young ones. But then we're brought up to speed with the Arctic birds as top notch spies, and that's when a new adventure begins. There's some childish silliness, but there's also some clever writing here, and that's from someone who has never really enjoyed these characters. Watch!
Here's the new trailer for Penguins of Madagascar from DreamWorks Animation:
The Penguins of Madagascar is directed by Eric Darnell (Madagascar franchise) and Simon J. Smith (Bee Movie) and written by John Aboud and Michael Colton ("Sit Down Shut Up," "Allen Gregory"). Featuring the Penguins from DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar franchise, this 3D comedy adventure stars Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private in their very own spy thriller where they must join forces with the chic spy organization, the North Wind, led by Agent Classified (Benedict Cumberbatch) to stop the villainous Dr. Octavius Brine (John Malkovich). 20th Century Fox releases the animated film November 26th this fall.

Everything that THE MINIONS film wins for this film loses.

See, I disagree. This is one of the few...very few...animated spinoffs I'd be more up for seeing. So yeah, rather see this than Minions. The penguins always had a dry humor and constant adult sarcasm.

Maybe we could see a teamup down the line: Minions and Penguins...now that would be awesome...
