March of the Penguins - In theaters June 24th, Rated G
Directed by: Luc Jacquet
As told by: Morgan Freeman
Cast: Introducing the Emperor Penguins


“March of the Penguins” tells one of the most beautiful love stories on Earth.

In the Antarctic, every March since the beginning of time, the quest begins to find the perfect mate and start a family. This courtship will begin with a long journey – a journey that will take them hundreds of miles across the continent by foot, in freezing cold temperatures, in brittle, icy winds and through deep, treacherous waters. They will risk starvation and attack by dangerous predators, under the harshest conditions on earth, all to find true love.

About the Production

There has never before been a comprehensive feature-length film depicting the extraordinary struggles and triumphs of the emperor penguin. Our task was a mammoth one, requiring a full film crew to set up camp in the Antarctic during the winter and remain for thirteen months with no possibility of sea or air transportation. Thus stranded, our constant presence allowed us to capture the full and remarkable variety of penguin behavior, as well as many bizarre and unique encounters. Filmed in super 16mm to convey the full visual impact of this magnificent environment, "March of the Penguins" includes underwater footage of the penguins’ winter activities, shot by experienced divers using specialized cameras and never previously captured in such breathtakingly beautiful detail.
