We are looking forward to seeing Disneynature's Penguins, which will be narrated by Ed Helms.

I just love that the main penguin in this film is named Steve. It's funny and cute to me and I want to watch his journey!
So grab the printable activity packets below, plan to see the movie, and engage your kids in discussions about penguins, the Earth, and how we can help them.
About Disneynature's Penguins Movie
Disneynature’s all-new feature film 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.
None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he's targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after.
From the filmmaking team behind BEARS and CHIMPANZEE, Disneynature’s PENGUINS opens in theaters nationwide in time for Earth Day 2019.
