Thank you Disney for inviting us to screen Disneynature Penguins, and for the opportunity to interview director Roy Conli. All opinions are my own.
This hilarious film is narrated by Ed Helms; who tells the coming of age story of an Adèlie penguin, who follows his fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. However, unlike the other penguins in his breed, nothing comes naturally to him. Steve battles the extreme conditions in the arctic, and an abundance of predators. Disney Nature has touched our hearts again, and made me fall in love with this beautiful story.
Did you know?
The Adélie penguin is classified as near threatened on the IUCN Red List of threatened species.
In my interview with Director Roy Conli, he explained how much character and personality the Adélie Penguins had. They were very animated with their movements, and practically wrote their own stories.
The cinematography and scenic landscapes in this film were breathtaking!
“Penguins” continues Disneynature’s conservation tradition: for every ticket sold
opening week (April 17-23, 2019), Disneynature will make a donation to the Wildlife
Conservation Network (WCN) to help protect penguins across the southern
hemisphere. Founded in 2002, WCN invests in a select network of on-the-ground
conservationists, including top experts in the field of penguins like the Global Penguin
Society (GPS). The worldwide leader in science-based penguin conservation, GPS
champions specific programs that align with Disneynature’s conservation mission.
Conservation is a key pillar of the label, and the films empower the audience to help
make a difference, with each film supporting wildlife featured in the films.
