Movie Review: Disneynature Penguins

Disneynature is celebrating its 10th year since its first feature film debut. Its latest film, Penguins, is one I have been most looking forward to since it was first announced. I absolutely love Penguins and couldn't wait to see my best dressed animal friends on the big screen! Penguins marks the eighth film in this series and the first one to be released on IMAX.

We follow an Adelie penguin named Steve as he tries to find love and start a family. Along the way we find that nothing comes easy for Steve. Providing narration for the film and in a sense giving Steve a voice, is actor Ed Helms. Helms brings all of Steve's charm and quirkiness to life. And mixed in with the heart and the humor of the story, there are some frightening moments for Steve and his friends. I will never look at seals the same way ever again.

Visually the film is spectacular, bringing us the sights of the Antarctic that the vast majority of us will never get to see in person. There is also a great soundtrack featuring Patti Labelle, REO Speedwagon, Average White Band and Whitesnake!

The Disneynature films have always brought a fully emotional story and Penguins is no different! There is so much heart and charm and is perhaps my favorite of the series!

Another great reason to see Penguins this week (April 17-23) is that for every ticket sold, Disney will make a donation to the Wildlife Conservation Network to aid in ocean plastic clean-up around the Antarctic.
