Disney has announced that the 20th Century Studios comedy film “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” is coming to Disney+ in the United States on Friday 3rd December 2021.
Mr. Popper (Jim Carrey) is a successful real estate developer in Manhattan. He lives in a posh apartment on Park Avenue, and is on the fast track to a partnership in a prestigious company. However, his life changes radically when he receives a final gift from his late father — a live penguin, which is soon joined by five more penguins. The birds’ antics soon win over Mr. Popper, and as he bonds with the penguins, his chilly relationship with his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) and kids begins to thaw.
This movie was directed by Mark Waters who previously directed Freaky Friday and Mean Girls, and the Disney+ Original movie, Magic Camp.
Check out the trailer below:
“Mr. Popper’s Penguins” is based on a novel, originally published in 1938, written by the husband and wife team of Richard and Florence Atwater. Awarded the Newbery Medal in 1939, Mr. Popper’s Penguins became a classic through generations, and is a staple on elementary school shelves to this day.
The film has already been available on Disney+ in many countries including Canada for a while.
