The general plot of the movie revolves around the main penguins from the earlier Madagascar films, Kowalski, Skipper, and Rico. They are talking penguins and have much larger than life adventures after escaping from the circus where they are performers. The penguins are also known to use advanced technology like that of a secret agent in a spy movie. In this way, the plot of the movie follows some similar themes to a spy action film, like James Bond or Mission Impossible, with similar musical motifs as well. These elements are also carried over from the Penguins' appearances in the earlier Madagascar franchise entries.

movie facts

The Penguins of Madagascar were chosen for their own spin-off film because of their popularity with audiences in the earlier movies, and this film was also not the first use of the name or characters in aa separate work. The Penguins received their own animated series in 2008 on Nickelodeon, featuring many of the same voices that returned in the film, as well as other famous actors, such as Andy Richter and Nicole Sullivan. The movie premiered around the same time as the show officially ended broadcast, so it is in many ways effectively a continuation or finale to the Penguins of Madagascar television show. Unfortunately, as with the ending of the television series, the movie did not earn enough of a profit for the studios involved to consider it a financial success, and as a result, the production studio was hit with significant layoffs and reorganization following the film's release.
