Warner Bros. has released the latest trailer for their upcoming documentary, PANDAS. Narrated by Kristen Bell, audiences will follow Qian Qian, a panda bear born into captivity and tasked with increasing the population of pandas in the wild.
From the team behind Warner Bros. 2011 doc Born to be Wild and 2014’s Island of Lemurs: Madagascar, Pandas takes audiences to China’s Chengdu Panda Base to meet some very adorable pandas and their beloved caretakers.
I couldn’t help, but find myself gushing at the adorable little grunts and growls as the pandas cause a bit of mischief. However, I think the film is really going to pack a punch when audiences learn how hard it is for pandas to survive in the wild.
The film opens in IMAX and IMAX 3D theaters on April 6, check out the trailer below.
Here is the official synopsis for Pandas:
Pandas are beloved around the world, and now they are coming to the big screen in the IMAX® original film “Pandas,” a breathtaking documentary adventure and amazing experience for the whole family narrated by Kristen Bell (“Frozen,” TV’s “The Good Place”).
At Chengdu Panda Base in China, scientists are taking the captive breeding program to the next level and preparing captive-born cubs for the wild. This film follows one such researcher, whose passion leads her to initiate a new technique inspired by a black bear rehabilitator in rural New Hampshire. What starts as a cross-cultural collaboration becomes a life-changing journey for one special panda named Qian Qian. The film, captured with IMAX® cameras, follows Qian Qian on an exciting new adventure into the mountains of Sichuan as she experiences nature for the first time and discovers her wild side.
