What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Penguins is a nature documentary about everyone's favorite waddling bird. In the style of other Disneynature films, this one focuses on the story of a single penguin (dubbed Steve) as he tries to build a nest, find a mate, and start a family in the beautiful but unforgiving landscape of Antarctica. While there isn't likely to be much iffy content, the animal kingdom is plenty perilous, so this could be too intense for young or sensitive kids. But animal lovers and documentary fans will likely enjoy it.
