Kristen Bell (Frozen, TV’s “The Good Place”) will narrate the latest IMAX documentary adventure Pandas, a heartwarming global story about reintroducing captive born pandas to the wild. The film will be released in select IMAX® and IMAX® 3D theatres starting April 6, 2018.
Pandas are beloved around the world, especially at Chengdu Panda Base in China where 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.
Kristen Bell currently stars as Eleanor Shellstrop in season two of the TV series “The Good Place,” with Ted Danson, which has been renewed for a third season by NBC. Up next, she will star in the Netflix comedy “Like Father,” opposite Kelsey Grammer, and lend her voice to the animated film Teen Titans GO! to the Movies, both set for release in 2018.
