Overview
Move it! Move it! for MADAGASCAR, the #1 Family Comedy of the Year, from the studio that brought you Shrek and Shark Tale. When four pampered animals from New York's Central Park Zoo accidentally find themselves shipwrecked on the exotic island of Madagascar, they discover it really IS a jungle out there! Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer and Jada Pinkett Smith headline an all-star cast of hilarious animals, including a quartet of mischievous penguins and legions of lemurs, led by the outrageous King Julien. MADAGASCAR is a roaring good family film that you'll go wild for again and again!

PLUS! Before the mission to Madagascar, those zany Penguins stirred up some holiday spirit back at the zoo. Check out the "cute and cuddly" foursome starring in their very own whacked-out film, A CHRISTMAS CAPER!
