For the Love of a Panda
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.
We attended IMAX and Warner Bros.’s world premiere for PANDAS at the infamous TCL Chinese Theaters in Hollywood on St. Patrick’s Day and there was an insane amount of excitement in the air as we prepared for red carpet interviews and the pre-party.
Below is a video that includes our experience , as well as red carpet interviews with narrator Kristen Bell, producers, biologist, the cinematographer and more. I’m not sure who enjoyed the making of this film the most because the cinematography is stunning and the pandas are incredibly cute and amazing to watch. I think you’ll see that everyone involved has a genuine love for all things pandas!
PANDAS and all their cuteness will be in select IMAX theaters on April 6. Go see them, you’ll love them even more!

After years of success breeding captive pandas, scientists at the Chengdu Research Base For Giant Panda Breeding (aka Chengdu Panda Base) in China are taking their efforts to the next stage and preparing captive-born cubs for release in the wild. This film follows one such researcher, whose passion leads her to initiate a new reintroduction technique inspired by a black bear rehabilitator in rural New Hampshire. What starts as a cross-cultural collaboration becomes a life-changing journey for a team of scientists and one special panda named Qian Qian (pronounced Chen Chen). 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 the freedom – and perils – of the wild side.
