Animated Werner Herzog Narrates Penguins Of Madagascar

HERZOG.jpg

While animated fodder has increasingly skewed to an adult audience in previous years, this has to be an all-time peak.

Dreamworks have made quite possibly our favourite decision of the day for their upcoming Madagascar spin-off, Penguins Of Madagascar.

The animation studio suits have drafted in Werner Herzog to make a cameo appearance. Reprising his role from his documentary Encounters At The End Of The World, Herzog appears as a voice-over and in animated form in the four-minute clip which you can watch below.

The whole thing is a masterful bit of riffing on his famous comment in Encounters, and is well worth watching.

Penguins Of Madagascar is out on December 5
