I haven’t seen any of the “Madagascar” movies, possibly due to the fact that I’m not four years old. But with the franchise earning nearly $2 billion dollars worldwide after three installments, clearly DreamWorks Animation are appealing to kids in all the right ways, a trend sure to continue this fall with the release of “The Penguins Of Madagascar.”
‘Penguins’ finds the titular characters embarking on a new adventure. Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private are part of a spy organization known as The North Wind, and are tasked by the Benedict Cumberbatch-voiced Agent Classified (ha) to track down Dr. Octavius Brine (John Malkovich), a dastardly villain out to destroy the world, because, obviously. Note to parents: when you take your kids to see this movie, you’ll want to keep your ears out for a cameo by Werner Herzog. As himself. (Really).
“The Penguins Of Madagascar” opens on November 26th in 3D. Watch the new trailer and clip below.
