DreamWorks Animation has swapped the release dates for Penguins of Madagascar and Home.
Penguins of Madagascar will now land in cinemas on November 26th while Home will arrive on March 27th, 2015.
“We will continue to be as flexible as necessary when it comes to our release dates," said Dawn Taubin, chief marketing officer at DreamWorks Animation.
"We see a unique opportunity for our next two films by having the Penguins of Madagascar move onto November 26th of this year and Home move onto March 27th, 2015. We’re confident that this date switch gives both of our upcoming releases the largest opportunity for success.”
Alien leader Captain Smek, star of the Home, added: “We are very pleased to let Earth’s most powerful penguins save the world before we invade it. Your planet will still be there in the spring – and this way, we don’t have to buy any of you earthlings Christmas gifts.”
Penguins’ squad leader Skipper said: “As top-secret spies, we rarely send press releases,but yeah, we’ve been asked to save the world this Thanksgiving. Just once, can’t a madman try to wreak havoc on a weekday between nine and five?”
