I know this is going to sound a bit weird but my boys have always been big fans of the cartoons and movies with penguins in them. I don't know why or where it started and by all means it isn't an obsession or even a favorite animal of theirs. They just seem to be very intrigued by penguins. SO when I was asked to review The Little Penguin: Pororo's Racing Adventure, I thought it would be a good one for the boys!
"Ready, Set, Sled! Just in time for the 2014 Winter Olympics, the engaging and entertaining family film The Little Penguin: Pororo's Racing Adventure arrives on DVD and Digital, exclusively at Walmart, February 4th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Watch as Pororo's dreams come true when he participates in the ultimate Super Sled race with his friends.
Awarded the Dove Seal of Approval, this fun-filled adventure features an exceptional cast of voice talent including Rob Schneider (Grown Ups), Drake Bell (TV's "Drake & Josh"), Anthony Anderson (TV's "Guys with Kids"), Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Jerry Trainor (TV's "T.U.F.F. Puppy") and Jay Mohr (Are We There Yet?)."
The synopsis says "Curious little penguin Pororo and his friends accidentally cause an airplane to make an emergency landing at their village. After giving the villagers lessons in ice sled racing and passing on the championship spirit, the plane's crew must get going so Pororo and his friends hitch a ride to Northpia to participate in the Super Sled race and become the next champion. But to win, they must compete against the former champions, The White Tigers, the win-at-all-cost Brown Bears and numerous other teams!"
Recommendation: I would have to say for the price I didn't think the DVD was quite worth it as it didn't seem to appeal to either of them to make that price worthwhile. I did think the cast was a great one though!
Giveaway: Lionsgate is going to give one of A Lucky Ladybug's lucky readers a copy of The Little Penguin: Pororo's Racing Adventure DVD to have of their own!
