The most beloved birds on the global espionage scene, The Penguins of Madagascar, have been recruited for a super-secret mission to save the world from a cunning madman this Thanksgiving.
Here's what squad leader Skipper had to say about the news.
"As top-secret spies, we rarely send press releases. But yeah, we've been asked to save the world this Thanksgiving. Just once, can't a madman try to wreak havoc on a weekday between 9 and 5?"
Dawn Taubin, Chief Marketing Officer at DreamWorks Animation, had this to say in a statement, confirming The Penguins of Madagascar will hit theaters November 26, 2014 and Home will debut March 27, 2015.
"We will continue to be as flexible as necessary when it comes to our release dates. We see a unique opportunity for our next two films by having The Penguins of Madagascar move onto November 26 of this year and Home move onto March 27, 2015. We're confident that this date switch gives both of our upcoming releases the largest opportunity for success."
When approached for comment, Captain Smek, star of the upcoming film Home and leader of the Boov, had this to say.
"We are very pleased to let Earth's most powerful penguins save the world before we invade it. Your planet will still be there in the spring - and this way, we don't have to buy any of you earthlings Christmas gifts."
