‘Penguins’ Giftset Marching Just in Time for the Holidays1 Jul, 2009 By: Eui-jo Marquez
Coming Oct. 27 (prebook Sept. 22) from Warner Home Video is a new March of the Penguins Limited Edition Giftset (DVD $39.92), which will include the all-new feature-length documentary On the Wings of Penguins, a plush African penguin toy and collectible postcards.
March of the Penguins has been inspiring audiences since its release in 2005, and it won the Academy Award for best feature documentary. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, it is the second most successful documentary ever. The film stars the Emperor penguins of Antarctica and chronicles their journey to find a mate and start a family.
The new documentary On the Wings of Penguins is a comical and fascinating look at the lives of the warm-weather African penguin, which is also known as the “jackass penguin.”
The On the Wings of Penguins DVD also features “National Geographic’s Crittercam: Emperor Penguins” and “Of Penguins and Men,” about the filming of the penguins.
