penguins-of-madagascar-blu-ray-coverPenguins of Madagascar was unlucky when it came to looking back over the year, because it was overshadowed by other animated efforts in a year that was just lousy with surprisingly strong animated releases. But, it’s not a movie you should let slip past, and is one that will certainly be a rewatch staple for younger audiences for a long time.

We’ll have a full review of the Digital release very soon, but wanted to make sure you got the news that the movie is available now on iTunes and other Digital HD retailers.

We also want to make sure you have all the info for the Blu-Ray release, including the toy pack that will be available. The iTunes release comes with the bonus features of the Blu-Ray release.
