This triumphant coming-of-age tale narrated by Tim Allen is sure to delight viewers of all ages. After three years at sea, Rex, an irrepressible King Penguin,heads home to South Georgia Island, which lies just north of the frozen vastness of Antarctica. On this beautiful, forbidding piece of land lies his birthplace and home: Penguin City. Unsure of what the wider world still has to offer him, Rex has decided to try something wholly different: marriage and, eventually, if he's lucky, family. Rex learns that marriage doesn't mean the end to life's troubles, and that entering into fatherhood is no small decision. As he navigates the ups and downs of his new life, he realizes that no matter how far he's traveled on his own, settling down and starting a family is the greatest adventure of all.
Rex, a young King Penguin, has been away from his home for three years, learning to hunt in the wild oceans, but now he’s back – in Penguin City. His mission: to find a mate, settle down and raise a chick. But can he survive the numerous predators and the harsh conditions on an isolated island at the bottom of the world?
This is the journey of a typical bachelor King Penguin from awkward adolescent to accomplished adult. It’s a family tale, of love and adventure, tragedy and triumph – all told through the charismatic and charming natural actors, the penguins of South Georgia.
Stunning cinematography takes us into Penguin City, on an extraordinary sub-Antarctic island, home to majestic albatrosses, brawling elephant seals – and six million penguins. Narrator Tim Allen (Disney Nature’s Chimpanzee, Pixar’s Toy Story) brings added warmth and humor to the tale, aided by a funny and dramatic script by Phillip LaZebnik (Pocahontas, Mulan, Prince of Egypt). Though our hero’s harsh world may be alien to our day-to-day lives, his struggle will be familiar to us all.
