March of the Penguins will be marching straight into the hearts of holiday shoppers. The giftset will include an all-new feature-length documentary, On the Wings of Penguins, a plush African penguin toy and collectible postcards – a gift sure to delight.
March of the Penguins is narrated by Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby) and chronicles the lives of the emperor penguins and their remarkable journey to find a mate and start a family. The film is an all-age, true-life adventure touched with humor, with breathtaking photography that puts you in the middle of the drama of devoted parent penguins who, in the face of fierce polar winters, take turns guarding their eggs and trekking to the ocean in search of food. They will risk starvation and attack by dangerous predators, under the harshest conditions on earth, all to find true love and guard their adorable chicks.
March of the Penguins Limited Edition Giftset features an all-new feature-length documentary, On the Wings of a Penguin, a fascinating look at the lives and adventures of another breed of penguin: the African penguin. With the dedication of people devoted to their survival, this warm-weather species (also known as “jackass penguins”) thrives and inspires the joy of living. From oil spills off the coast of Africa to the destruction of Hurricane Katrina, witness the fun-loving spirit of these penguins as they continue to overcome life’s challenges. In the wild and at aquariums and zoos, the African penguins’ quirky and endearing behavior delights fans all over the world.
March of the Penguins was not only a critical success, but a popular one as well, as the public flocked to the theatre to see a documentary as never before. Freeman’s vocal range and emotion adds to the impact of this documentary, but ultimately it is the direction of Luc Jacuet that turns what could have simply been an educational documentary, into a well-rounded story and movie.
The theatrical trailer for March of the Penguins, a beautiful penguin plush toy, and a set of eight penguin postcards rounds out this gift set.
March of the Penguins is solid entertainment for the whole family, and this new giftset offers enough bonus material to make this a worthwhile purchase for those that already own the March of the Penguins DVD. Warner Home Video has put together a perfect gift-set just in time for the holidays.
