As Disneynature marks a decade since its first feature-film debut, its newest, “Penguins,” begins its countdown to opening day – just in time for Earth Day.
For the past 10 years, Disneynature has been committed to bringing the world’s top nature filmmakers together to share a wide variety of wildlife stories on the big screen. Its films have ranged from the story of a mama bear trekking through snowy Alaskan terrain on a mission to feed her new spring cubs, to a panda bear cub testing her boundaries.
In “Penguins,” narrated by actor Ed Helms (“The Office,” “The Hangover” trilogy, and “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”), a first-time Adélie penguin father named Steve finds his way among millions of fellow penguins as he’s targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals.
“Penguins” continues Disneynature’s conservation tradition: for every ticket sold opening week (April 17-23, 2019), Disneynature will make a donation to the Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) to help protect penguins across the southern hemisphere.
All seven of Disneynature’s theatrical film releases—”Earth,” “Oceans,” “African Cats,” “Chimpanzee,” “Bears,” “Monkey Kingdom” and “Born in China”—rank among the top 10 highest overall grossing feature-length nature films to date, with “Chimpanzee” garnering a record-breaking opening weekend for the genre.
“Penguins,” Disneynature’s eighth theatrical feature, opens in theaters on April 17, and will be the first-ever Disneynature film to be released in IMAX®.
