About the Movie
After three years at sea, Rex, an irrepressible King Penguin with a thirst for travel and love of epic voyages heads home to Penguin City, his birthplace on beautiful South Georgia Island, not far from the frozen vastness of Antarctica. Having tasted what the wider world has to offer, Rex now embarks on the greatest adventure of his life--finding a mate and raising a family. In this perfect family-friendly story, follow Rex as he searches for true love among Penguin City’s six million inhabitants, has fun with his cousins Larry and Moe, and learns to survive harsh weather and dangerous predators. Comical elephant seals, smaller macaroni penguins, majestic albatrosses, and cute King Penguin chicks are all part of the fun, set amongst the stunning sub-Antarctic landscape. Narrator Tim Allen (Disney Nature’s Chimpanzee, Pixar’s Toy Story) brings added warmth and humour to the tale, with a script by Phillip LaZebnick (Pocahontas, Mulan, Prince of Egypt).

My Take on the Movie
This was a fun story that any lover of penguins will enjoy. What I loved was the documentary-style of the movie, and throughout you are both entertained and informed about the lives of these penguins. The movie itself was one that was engaging and had my daughter and I asking more questions than not after the movie ended. In fact we actually went right to the computer to start looking up more information about these penguins. All-in-all this was a fascinating movie that opened my eyes and my heart to the wonderful animals!
