The holiday season is nearly upon us and this equates to one defining fact for moviegoers; you’re gonna be bombarded by kiddie fare at the multiplex. Luckily, the quality of today’s animated capers aimed at youngsters are more than aware of this and cram in as many subtle gags for adults. That’s right, it looks like Dreamworks have another winner on their hands, as Penguins Of Madagascar‘s latest trailer suggests that you’ll be roaring away with your pint-sized offspring this November.
The comedy adventure spinoff follows the group of penguins who first appeared in animated zoo caper, Madagascar. Picking up directly from the events of third instalment, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, this time the story focuses solely on the arctic birds, namely Skipper (Tom McGrath), Kowalski (Chris Miller), Rico (John Di Maggio) and Private (Christopher Knights). The group of birds work together on a task force that assists animals in danger, which eventually leads them to unmasking a major threat from the evil Dr. Octavius Brine (John Malkovich.)
With Despicable Me spinoff, Minions, having also debuted its first trailer yesterday there’s certainly a seasonal trend emerging. The very last trailer for Penguins, however, shows that neither film has anything to worry about in terms of monopolizing the market; they’re both different beasts indeed.
You can check out the trailer in question above and prepare the family for a trip to the flicks when Penguins Of Madagascar opens on November 26th.
