Pandas – a heartwarming global story about reintroducing captive born pandas to the wild – is narrated by actress Kristen Bell and playing at the Bristol IMAX® Omnitheater. The filmmakers from the acclaimed IMAX documentaries Born to Be Wild and Island of Lemurs: Madagascar take audiences on an exciting and educational new journey for the entire family, this time in China with a species loved the world over – Giant Pandas.
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 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.
A teachers guide and several activities is available for Pandas.
