And “March of the Penguins 2: The Next Step,” the sequel to the 2005 Oscar-winning documentary, will premiere on March 23. Filmmaker Luc Jacquet and narrator Morgan Freeman will return to the Antarctic to revisit the Emperor penguins. Jacquet spent two months shooting in the Antarctic winter using the new technology of 4K cameras, airborne drones, and under-ice diving to show the lives of these creatures in an entirely new light. “March of the Penguins 2” tells the story of two penguins, a father and son, as they face the almost unimaginable challenges of life in a hostile land.
