Ed Helms To Narrate Disneynature’s ‘Penguins’

Disney has set Ed Helms To Narrate Disneynature’s Penguins.

The Hangover and Office star will narrate Disneynature’s upcoming theatrical feature, which tells the coming-of-age story of an Adélie penguin named Steve as he joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family.

None of it comes easily since he’s targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after.

Watch Helms’ announce the news below:

“Disney movies are filled with poignancy and real emotion, but also are extremely funny and relatable — this movie is no different,” says Helms. “It’s a true life adventure with real footage of penguins in Antarctica, but told in a way that tugs at your heart strings a little and also has quite a few chuckles. For me, this movie is a very cool mash-up of narration and character work. I get to voice Steve’s inner monologue as well as straight narration. It was a really fun challenge for me — a privilege getting to imagine what this penguin might be thinking — and I’m really excited about it.”

From the filmmaking team behind Bears and Chimpanzee, Disneynature’s Penguins opens in theaters in time for Earth Day.
