Penguins Of Madagascar: What You Need To Know

After charming everybody earlier this year and scooping almost $400 million in box office receipts, Penguins Of Madagascar is now bound for release on DVD and Blu-Ray on Monday (March 30th), here’s everything you need to know…


What’s the plot?

Basically, it goes a little like this: After parting ways from the circus we left them in at the end of Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, we find our heroes, penguins Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private have been kidnapped. Kidnapped by Dr Octavius Brine, a villainous octopus who wants to bring the world as they know it to an end. Rescued soon after by a chic undercover organization named The North Wind, a top secret operation much like their own, the penguins are forced to team up with their new colleagues to stop Brine in his tracks.


Who’s in it?

Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Conrad Vernon and Christopher Knights all return to voice the titular penguins, while big names are onboard in many of the other roles. Benedict Cumberbatch voices Classified, the gray wolf and leader of The North Wind, while John Malkovich gets his evil on as Dr. Octavius Brine.


Does it deliver?

Absolutely. It’s funny, suitably silly and full of excellent one liners. A great film for just about anyone.


Penguins Of Madagascar is released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Monday (March 30th).
