Movie Info

Academy Award (R) winner Morgan Freeman ("Million Dollar Baby," "Dolphin Tale") narrates the IMAX 3D (R) documentary "Island of Lemurs: Madagascar," the incredible true story of nature's greatest explorers-lemurs. The film reunites Freeman with Drew Fellman, who also wrote and produced the 2011 IMAX 3D documentary "Born to Be Wild 3D," and director David Douglas, who served as director of photography on that film. Captured with IMAX (R) 3D cameras, "Island of Lemurs: Madagascar" takes audiences on a spectacular journey to the remote and wondrous world of Madagascar. Lemurs arrived in Madagascar as castaways millions of years ago and evolved into hundreds of diverse species but are now highly endangered. Join trailblazing scientist Dr. Patricia Wright on her lifelong mission to help these strange and adorable creatures survive in the modern world.(C) Warner Brosmore

The animated lemurs make kids laugh in Madagascar, but the real-life ones in Island of Lemurs: Madagascar should enthrall and inspire even the youngest.

The film is an equally fun and sobering look at the lives of these animals, along with the evolving efforts to try and save this distant cousin of humans.

"Island of Lemurs: Madagascar" accomplishes a great deal in its 40-minute running time, entertaining and educating us while delivering a message about preservation that's clear without being heavy-handed.

Island of Lemurs: Madagascar is only 40 minutes long, so there isn't a ton of depth; the movie is a nice overview, at best. But it's a fun overview for the whole family - one that may inspire you to learn more.

The photography is vibrant, the lemurs adorable, and aside from some mild eco-lecturing, the tone is warm and fuzzy.

Audience Reviews for Island Of Lemurs: Madagascar

I love documentaries. This one doesn't go far in teaching anything new or fascinating, but the scenery and the footage of the animals are beautiful. It's a quick watch, and definitely worth it.


A cool flick and reasonably educational. But there's no facts about lemurs in this one. But it films lemurs being raised. And seen in the wild. Overall grade: B-

Trey Walton

This is such an informative and beautiful movie - it is both educational and charming. A must see for animal-lovers, and a terrific teaching tool for conservationists.
