Heartwarming Disneynature’s Penguins

We attended a screening of Disneynature Penguins as a guest of Disney

Tomorrow is Earth Day and the day that the world is invited to experience Disneynature’s all-new film, Penguins. Earlier this month, I attended a special screening of the film and a short interview with the Producer Roy Conli.

Steve in Disney's Penguins

Disneynature films have always been my favorite to watch with my children. The movies take us to places in the world that we most likely will never see and we get to follow the journey of beautiful animals. This year, the Disneynature film is all about penguins.

Who doesn’t love penguins? They are so cute, and my kids and I could find ourselves spending hours watching them Sea World. I have always been curious about how they live in the wild, and the movie taught me so much about how penguins live, eat, and survive in the wild.

The story follows a very special penguin named Steve. Steve isn’t like all the other penguins and beats to his own drum. He’s a little clumsy, and the last to arrive at the colony to start preparing a nest for his future wife. The other penguins seem to push him around a little, and they are even caught stealing the rocks he collected for his nest.

Then it is time for the girls to arrive. All the penguins create a unique sound in hopes of finding a wife or the wife that they already have. Penguins spend 1/2 of the year apart, and when they come together, they find each other in the colony by their distinct sound. Penguins only have one mate during their lifetime, which is fascinating.

It takes a while, but Steve finally finds the perfect mate, and they fall in love. Watching them fall in love in the middle of the wild is one of the most beautiful things to watch. You get to see them kiss, snuggle, hold hands as they fall in love for life.

Together they create a family and raise two adorable baby penguins. Just like Steve, the baby penguins aren’t like the rest of the penguins in the colony and fight to survive from predators. I never realized how many struggles penguins go through to survive, and I was on the edge of my seat throughout parts of the film.

During the movie, I laughed, and I cried. It immediately became my favorite Disneynature film of all-time.

It is even more important to see the movie during opening weekend because for each ticket sold to see Disneynature’s PENGUINS during opening week (April 17, 2019 –April 23, 2019) in the U.S. and Canada, Disneynature will contribute $.20 per ticket to the Wildlife Conservation Network through the Disney Conservation Fund to support penguin conservation, with a minimum guaranteed donation of $100,000.

Disneynature’s Penguins is in theaters starting tomorrow. Learn more about the movie online, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
