What is it about penguins that make them so darned appealing to Hollywood nowadays? "Happy Feet" is killing at the box office, "March of the Penguins" is one of the most well received animal documentaries of all time, and "Surf's Up" looks very, very promising.
Things like this seems to come in tides. Anyone remember Antz and A Bug's Life premiering so close together? Or Volcano and Dante's Peak? Or Deep Impact and Armageddon?
Are we all somehow connected in a strange psychic-creative way? It makes no difference to me. All I know is, I drew a sketchy penguin, and I wanted to post him on my blog.
I call dibs on the next penguin movie!
