Remember playing Duck Duck Goose when you were a kid? I STILL remember kindergarten and sitting on the blue carpet and the anticipation of being tagged “GOOSE” on top of my head.

Well, now there’s a fun animated movie to go along with that favorite childhood game.

Duck Duck Goose Movie

The movie is about a “troublemaker” goose named Peng who wants to do things the way he wants to do things. He doesn’t want to follow rules and he certainly doesn’t want to follow the flock. And, he always seems to be in trouble for . . . whatever.

Suddenly, Peng finds himself in the unwanted position of responsibility when he accidentally rescues two ducklings who now treat Peng like a parent.



The movie takes the three on a journey through nature and many adventures to find their flocks.

You’ll probably recognize some of the voices of the animated characters. The Duck Duck Goose cast includes comedian Jim Gaffigan and Carl Reiner, along with teen idol Zendaya and also Jennifer Gray (from Dirty Dancing fame).
