DreamWorks Animation has released a new The Penguins of Madagascar clip that takes us through the beginning of the movie. 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. This is one of the clips they showed at Comic-Con, and like everything else I’ve seen from this movie, it looks surprisingly charming and funny.
Hit the jump to check out the new clip from The Penguins of Madagascar. The film also features the voices of John Malkovich, Andy Richter, Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, and Peter Stormare. The Penguins of Madagascar opens in 3D on November 26th.

Together, they must stop the villainous Dr. Octavius Brine, voiced by John Malkovich, from destroying the world as we know it.
