IMAX has released a new batch of photos from their upcoming film Pandas. The 40 minute documentary is narrated by Kristen Bell and is set for a one-week national expansion on August 17. The documentary short originally premiered back in April.
IMAX Corporation (NYSE: 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 17.
“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.
