IMAX and Warner Bros. Pictures today announced that the Kristen Bell-narrated IMAX documentary adventure Pandas, a heartwarming global story about reintroducing captive-born pandas to the wild, will expand into IMAX theatres across North America for a special one-week engagement, beginning August 17th.
“We are so proud of this movie and how audiences have embraced the importance of protecting and providing for these endangered creatures,” said writer/producer Drew Fellman, who also co- directed the film with David Douglas. “We hope that the wider release of Pandas will provide a greater emphasis on the work that is being done in China and help create ongoing awareness of the exciting new programs in place for Panda conservation.”
Pandas takes audiences on a remarkable journey to China, immersing them in an adventure starring the adorable, beloved species – Giant Pandas. Go behind the scenes with IMAX into a rarely seen world of captive-born pandas and meet a young cub named Qian Qian, the delightful, bamboo-loving star, as she prepares to go wild.
