Following the panel for Home, DreamWorks Animation moved to Penguins of Madagascar. In the upcoming spinoff, the scene-stealing penguins take the lead, and are joined by a wolf named Classified (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) and his covert team of protective animals as they try to stop Dave (John Malkovich), a malevolent octopus. Even though I’ve never been much for the Madagascar movies, the Penguins have always been wonderful, and I was interested to see if they could carry their own movie. Judging by what they showed us today, they could have one of the funniest films of the year.
