DreamWorks Animation has released the first The Penguins of Madagascar trailer for the upcoming spinoff of the animated Madagascar franchise.  Directed by Eric Darnell (Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted) and Simon J. Smith (Bee Movie), the film finds the scene-stealing penguins leading a film of their own as they’re joined by a wolf named Classified (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch), who leads a covert team of protective animals.  Though the pic may seem like an easy way to extend the lucrative series, this trailer is actually quite funny.  The pic appears to be a throwback to the action films of the 80s and 90s, and the titular penguins are a great source of physical comedy.

Hit the jump tow watch the first Penguins of Madagascar trailer.  The film also features the voices of John Malkovich, Andy Richter, Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, and Peter StormareThe Penguins of Madagascar opens in theaters on November 26th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Penguins of Madagascar:

Discover the secrets of the most entertaining and mysterious birds in the global espionage game: Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private now must join forces with the chic spy organization, the North Wind, led by Agent Classified (we could tell you his name, but then … you know), voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch to stop the villainous Dr. Octavius Brine, voiced by John Malkovich, from taking over the world.

    Somewhere along the line Dreamworks made the right decision and realized that no one cared about Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman. They wanted the lemurs and the penguins: the funniest animated characters on screen, bar perhaps the minions.
