Adventures of the Penguin King Directed by Anthony Geffen, 2013
TIM ALLEN NARRATES THIS REAL-LIFE, TRIUMPHANT, COMIC, COMING-OF-AGE TALE.
After three years at sea, Rex, an irrepressible King Penguin with a thirst for travel and love of epic voyages, heads home to Penguin City, his birthplace on beautiful South Georgia Island, not far from the frozen vastness of Antarctica. Having tasted what the wider world has to offer, Rex now embarks on the greatest adventure of his life: finding a mate and raising a family.
In this perfect family-friendly story, follow Rex as he searches for true love among Penguin City’s six million inhabitants, has fun with his cousins Larry and Moe, and learns to survive harsh weather and dangerous predators. Comical elephant seals, smaller macaroni penguins, majestic albatrosses and cute King Penguin chicks are all part of the fun, set amongst the stunning sub-Antarctic landscape.
Narrator Tim Allen (Disney Nature’s Chimpanzee, Pixar’s Toy Story) brings added warmpth and humor to the tale, with a script by Phillip LaZebnik (Pocahontas, Mulan, Prince of Egypt).
