Penguins 3D celebrates the destiny of a very special King Penguin, who returns to his birthplace in the sub-Antarctic.
Known as Penguin City, the island is home to hundreds of albatrosses, fur seals and brawling elephant seals—as well as six million penguins! Somehow our hero must earn his place among the island inhabitants and fulfill his destiny by finding a mate and raising a family.

What follows is the story of the most challenging time in a King Penguin’s life, when he is driven to nurture and defend his offspring against harsh weather and fierce predators. This cosmic drama plays out in one of Earth’s last great wildernesses, amid steep mountain ranges and windblown plains half buried beneath snow and ice. Penguins 3D is an unforgettable tale of one King Penguin’s journey through his species’ central rite of passage.

From the producers of Galapagos 3D, one of HMNS’ most successful giant screen films.
