Previously due to be released next spring, DreamWorks recently announced that The Penguins of Madagascar and Home would be switching release dates, putting Skipper and co. in cinemas a full four months earlier.
There’s just over five months left on the clock now before the film’s arrival, and the studio has debuted a great first trailer online.
Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, John DiMaggio, and Christopher Knights all reprise their roles as the leading quartet from the original Madagascar films, Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private.
And joining them for the ride this time will be Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, and Peter Stormare.
Eric Darnell, who co-directed the first three Madagascar films, is co-directing with Simon J. Smith (Bee Movie), with co-writers John Aboud and Michael Colton (Sit Down Shut Up, Leverage) making their feature debut.
The Penguins of Madagascar will be released in 3D on November 26th in the US, with its UK arrival set for 5th December.
