What did you think of this film?
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.
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.

Dedication: Dedicated to He Sheng
He Sheng was another panda chosen for this reintroduction program along with Qian Qian, the panda in the film. He was released into the wild in June 2016, but did not survive.
Wildlife reintroduction efforts can be heartbreaking. But such programs are vital to helping
endangered species avoid extinction. Lessons learned will help improve the program for future pandas. Qian Qian is now fully recovered and will move to a new protected reserve in China by the summer of 2018.
