Duck Duck Goose

Synopsis: Duck Duck Goose, the story of the most unlikely family ever. The film is directed by Christopher Jenkins (Home) from a screenplay by Christopher Jenkins and Rob Muir. After he's grounded by an injury, a high-flying bachelor is saddled with two wide-eyed orphans as they come face-to-face with the dangers and beauty of the outside world in the funny and touching animated feature, Duck Duck Goose. Our free-wheeling hero, Peng, rejects the community of his tight-knit flock of geese in an attempt to live life on his own terms. But after he narrowly rescues two young ducklings, Chi and Chao, from an eccentric but deadly cat named Banzou, the two latch onto the Goose like a parent; and with a paralyzing winter on the horizon and the departure of both their flocks, Peng agrees to look after the ducklings out of fear his injury might be discovered by Banzou, and other predators who would prey on a goose who cannot fly. The makeshift trio embarks on a beautiful and dangerous journey through moun

- Hey, Larry!

- Hello, Peng.

Oh, sorry, Larry.

- Whoo-hoo!

- Oh!

- Later guys!

- That is a violation...

Whoo-hoo! Sorry, guys, I'm running late.

Whoo! Goose on the loose!

There will be geese

to the right, left, up, and down.

Please check

before you answer nature's call.

Or at least give a brother a honk.

Ugh, Jenkins!

You should have gone before we left! Ugh!

As I was saying...

Peng, you're late. Again!

That makes you a weak link.

I've got no use for a loose goose.

Not in my flock.

Now, statistically speaking,

you're not likely to die in the air.

This is a motivational speech?

No, uh, there's a thousand other ways

you can get into trouble.

Get just one feather out of place...

and you could be staring

at your poop deck from the inside out.

That's why we train.

Train, train, train and train again.

Birds of a feather migrate together!

Birds of a feather migrate together!

Uh, question.

My friend here, Crazy Eye, wants to know,

do we have to migrate in a V formation?

- Excuse me?

- I mean. Couldn't we try another letter?

Yeah, like maybe a W!

Yeah. That's a capital, right? I'll go...


don't make me turn this V around.

Now, in answer to your question,

over many generations the V formation

has aerodynamically proven to be...

Oh! What about an A?

What... No.

Well, technically,

that's just an inverted V, right, Bing?

You... We fly in a V.

Birds of a feather migrate together!

Birds of a feather migrate together.

Now how about a hashtag?

I don't even know what that is.

No! No, no, no, no, no!

It has to be a V!

Now, birds of a feather migrate together!

I said,

birds of a feather migrate together!

Where is everybody?

Follow me!

Whoo! Yeah!

This way! Ouch. Whoo!

Keep up slowpokes!

Oh, yeah, baby!



Now this is flying!



Chao! Chao, stop.

I'm stuck.

- Ah!

- Come on. Hurry.

Chi, if I don't eat something soon,

I'm gonna die. To death!

Come on, bro,

you ate like five minutes ago!

You know we're not supposed

to leave the road.

Chao, come back here! Right now! Chao...

- Oh, look at that! Breakfast!

- No! No caterpillars.

You'll be barfing up chunks

if you eat that and you know it.

But I'm hungry, Chi!

You are always hungry.

There'll be plenty to eat

once we get to Pleasant Valley.

Pleasant Valley, here we come!

Great work, guys. And remember,

we've got to go before the snow comes.

Come on!

I can feel the air getting colder.

Oh! What's going on? What the...

Hey, Jinjing!

I hope I'm not holding you up?

Peng. Not today.

- Hey, Peng.

- Oh, look at that wingspan.

What do you say me and you find some

secluded spot to enjoy the harvest moon?

I made the moon for you, you know that?

You made the moon for me. Yeah, right.

We're leaving for the haven tonight!


Listen, my father would kill me if I...

Funny. I didn't know chickens could fly.

Are you calling me chicken?

Bock, bock, bock, bock... Bye!

Oh, you want to race?

It's on!

Hey, move it!

Wow. That's a goose.

On your left!

Move over!


Hey, no fair!


Wait! Wait, I need another one!

I must be crazy.

What is it about you?

Well, I'm good looking,

and charming, and... Whoo!

I'm the best flyer in the flock.

Uh, best flyer in the flock, huh?


Hey, whoa! Look out!




Hey! Take it easy son.

- I just had a new roof put on.

- Uh-oh...

Ow! Ow!

I told you, you were too heavy.

- Me?

- Yes.

Me? Oh, I like that!

Who was it who gorged themselves

on all those frogs this morning? Hmm?

How dare you!

Now you see what he's done.

He's got us attacking each other.

Peng, your misguided

landing made me lose a leg!

One of a pair. Do you see this?

My leg has gone. Completely gone!

No, no wait.

Silly me.

Nonetheless, my colleague and I

are here in our official capacity

as representatives of The Lakes.

A family friendly community.

Yeah. So, what's the problem?

Yeah, so what's the problem?

- Well, the problem?

- Oh, the problem!

Is that you are not family friendly.

Ow! Ow! Ow!


Come along, Giles.

Oh! Poo bombs!

Oh, no. I just had my feathers

done this morning.

Peng, Dad's really mad and...

Your dad's always mad.

How about another kiss? Come here. Mmm...


- Hi, Dad.

- How's it going, peaches?

- Peng, what were you thinking?

- Ooh!

- Ow, ow, ow, ow!

- He's sorry, Dad.

Ow. Sorry? Jeez! Relax.

No one got hurt. It was just a little fun.

Fun, huh? Migration isn't about fun.

It's about covering your tail-feathers

in case something comes up from behind.

- Ow!

- Now that was fun.

Everybody. See that feather?

It's moving from the north to the south,

just like the wind.

What does that tell you?

Winter's coming early.

Bing! Smart girl.

And in case some of us have forgotten,

this is why we migrate.

To stay ahead of the snow,

and to get to the thermal pools

before we all wind up in the frozen aisle

with our giblets in a bag

stuffed up our communal hoo-ha.

- Hoo-ha!

- It can be uncomfortable.

We fly at sunset!

I need all responsible flyers

front and center.

You know who you are. This is not a drill.

Not you. I'm giving you

one more chance to grow up.

Show you belong to this flock.

Lead the junior flyers to the haven.

Hey Peng! Peng! Over here!

Are you kidding? Hey guys!

I can't fly with the kids.

They're childish.

Not gonna do it!
