Ed Helms Coming to this Earth Day’s Disneynature “Penguins” as Narrator

Ed Helms

The penguins are coming to your big screen this April! When Disneynature’s “Penguins” hits theaters this Earth Day, Ed Helms (“The Office,” “The Hangover” trilogy, “The Daily Show with John Stewart”) will be narrating the life and struggles of one sweet little penguin. Here’s what you can expect this spring.

The coming-of-age story follows an Adélie penguin named Steve who 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 for him, especially considering he’s targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after.

“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 heartstrings 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.”

Be sure to watch Disneynature’s announcement video below! We are definitely excited to see Ed Helms dive right in with our favorite icy creatures. As always, proceeds from opening weekend of the film will go towards a donation to the Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) to help protect penguins across the southern hemisphere. Be sure to grab your tickets and help make a difference!
