Synopsis

This cheery computer cartoon features Pororo the penguin, who’s beloved in Korea. His TV adventures have entertained kids since 2003. He’s also a symbol of co-operation; the early Pororo TV episodes were co-produced between North and South Korea.



Pororo and his animal pals have been exported to more than 100 counties, but don’t worry if you’ve not met them before, as it’s easy as pie to pick up this penguin. In this feature-length adventure, Pororo and co travel from their snowy home to a tropical island to save its gentle dinosaurs from a greedy blue-skinned alien and his army of incompetent robots. Expect madcap chases and battles, some echoes of sci-fi blockbusters (Wall-E, The Phantom Menace) and the obligatory Jurassic Park joke. Interestingly, the film’s message is that kids must do what they truly think is right, especially for the sake of their friends, even when grown-ups sternly tell them “No.”
