The most exciting animated characters, Skipper, Rico, Kowalski and Private are back on the big screen headlining their own film in Dreamworks Animation’s “Penguins of Madagascar.”


                In the latest non-stop action caper of the year, the breakout stars of DreamWorks Animation’s hit “Madagascar” movies get their own big screen comedy-adventure, in which the stakes couldn’t be higher for the Penguins.  Their globetrotting adventures take them to Antarctica, Venice, the desert, Shanghai, New York City and … Kentucky), during which they experience glory, engage in espionage, foil an evil scientist’s/octopus’ dastardly plot – and devour cheesy snacks – like no penguins have ever before.

                In the following q&a, the greatest spy quartet of penguins share on how it was working on the movie and working together for almost a decade.

Q:           After letting Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria bask in the spotlight, how does it feel to finally be getting your own movie?

Skipper: Somebody’s filming us?! Rico, find those cameras and take them out! Pronto!

Q:           Did any of them give you tips on how to handle the work and the fame?

Skipper: Who’s famous? You didn’t see anything. Next question! And I’m serious about those cameras, Rico!

Q:           It looks like you again got to travel around the world making this film – what was your favorite place?

Skipper:  Well, they always say there’s no place like home. But we’re from Antarctica, so forget that. Maybe Venice?

Private:  We got to ride a gondola!

Skipper:  We sure did, you adorable ragamuffin.

Q:           It appears you’ve created quite the enemy in Dr Octavious Brine… what’s his problem?

Skipper:  I know, right? Wait, was that an actual question? Oh. Ehh, who knows? I stop paying attention when villains go into the “blah blah here’s my story blah I’m so angry blah.” Wake me up when there’s something to rescue and/or eliminate.

Q:           To help bring him down, you teamed up with professional spy Agent Classified. Who’s smarter?

Skipper:     I’m gonna let Kowalski field this one. Say something smart, Kowalski.

Kowalsko: Covalent bonds, Planck’s constant, ziggurat, flagellum.

Skipper:    I rest my case.

Q:           Without giving too much away, what was the hardest part about trying to bring down the Dr?

Skipper:  Well well, you’re just chock-full of questions today, aren’t you? WHO SENT YOU?! WHO ARE YOU WORKING FOR?! Rico, where are those cameras, man?!

Q:           The four of you have been working together now for almost a decade – do you still get on?

Skipper: Of course! This is a brotherhood, forged in the fury of battle, and solidified over several frosty mugs of herring juice. Sure, sometimes Private gets a little gassy—

Private:  I can’t believe you told him that!

Skipper: –but other than that, we’re good.

Q:           You guys have always been popular – why do we love penguins so much?

Skipper: How about you stare into Private’s adorable face for 30 seconds and tell me if you still need to ask that question.

Q:           Do those penguin documentaries really tell us all we need to know about you, or is there one secret you’re holding back?

Skipper: Ohhhh, yes. We’ve got one secret. A secret so big, it’ll blow your mind. Would you like to hear it? Well too bad, because Rico finally found your cameras. Take ‘em out, Rico!

Rico:      KYAAAAHHHHH!!!!

                Opening soon this November 26 in 2D, 3D and IMAX screens, “Penguins of Madagascar” is a Dreamworks Animation feature and 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
