It’s their most intense and dangerous mission yet, but if anyone can do it, it’s Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private. Together, they’re colloquially known as the Penguins of Madagascar and this year sees them embark on their own solo big screen adventure. They’ll be aided in their journey by members of the covert agency the North Wind, headed up by a nameless wolf, played by Benedict Cumberbatch. The penguins might be out of their element, but they’re never out of options.
At Comic-Con this year, our own Dan Casey chatted with the makers and cast of the film about bringing these beloved characters to the forefront of the action. Directors Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith, and voice of Skipper and director of the three Madagascar movies Tom McGrath share their thoughts about what the movie will hold for fans of the characters.
