Behind the scenes in Antarctica with the National Science Foundation and Disneynature Penguins


It is no easy task to film thousands of penguins in their natural habitat on a remote Antarctic coastline—but it was made possible with the support of the National Science Foundation-managed U.S. Antarctic Program. See what it was like to film “on the ice” with camerawomen Sophie Darlington and Julie Moniere, who both spent a month in Antarctica filming penguins and other wildlife for Disneynature’s Penguins, out in theaters April 17, 2019.
