I found this article about casting the penguins for Mr. Popper's Penguins an interesting read. The article talks about selecting what species to use, how the penguins were housed during the shooting, and training them. Makes me even more interested in seeing the movie, but first I want to get around to reading the book. Since I have so many books in my to read pile and do not even own Mr. Popper's Penguins, yet, I probably will not be seeing this movie until it is on DVD.
Those that have read the book or do not care to read it before seeing the movie, can enjoy it in theaters beginning June 17, 2011.
