Fans react to DisneyNature “Penguins” trailer

Disneynature's all-new feature film "Penguins" is a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he's targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after.

A loveable penguin named Steve is coming to the big screens in 2019.

DisneyNature has released its first glimpse into its 2019 EarthDay offering: an Antarctic adventure following the life and antics of a penguin they call “Steve.” The movie trailer for Penguins (see the link below) suggests that the movie will be lighthearted, educational, packed with beautiful scenery and fascinating animals, and will have only a few cameos by the Avengers.

Uncle Walt’s Insider reached out to its devoted fans for their response. Here is a sampling of the reactions we received:

“As a penguin-lover, I’m really looking forward to it. It’s always good to know where our food comes from.” – Roderick M., chef, Oregon

“Oh, here we go. Disney is promoting a penguin-centric worldview again.” – Carmen T., homemaker, Georgia

“How much is real, and how much is CG? I mean, they look nothing like the penguin from Bloom County.” – Mark S., meteorologist, Colorado

“At no time did I or my publicist agree to this egregious invasion of privacy. And I don’t even go by ‘Steve,’ which is my middle name.” — Vincent, penguin, Antarctica

“I don’t get it.” – Shelly V., website critic and humor judge, California

Penguins opens in theaters on Earth Day 2019.
