Splashing its way into theaters, Disneynature is releasing its eighth theatrical release and their first-ever film to be released in IMAX®! Narrated by Ed Helms,“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.
Disneynature Penguins IMAX Movie Release
None of it comes easily for Steve, 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.
Disneynature’s 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.
Directed by Alastair Fothergill, Jeff Wilson, Disneynature’s Penguins is produced by Alastair Fothergill, Mark Linfield, Keith Scholey, and Roy Conli with music composed by Harry Gregson-Williams.
