Movie Info

Pandas are beloved around the world, and now they are coming to the big screen in the IMAX (R) original film "Pandas," a breathtaking documentary adventure and amazing experience for the whole family. At Chengdu Panda Base in China, scientists are dedicated to protecting the species by breeding adult Giant Pandas in order to introduce cubs into the wild. This film follows one such researcher, whose passion leads her to initiate a new technique inspired by a black bear program in rural New Hampshire. What starts as a cross-culture collaboration becomes a life-changing journey for an American biologist who crosses an ocean to join her; a scientist from Inner Mongolia; and a very curious female cub named Qian Qian, born in captivity. Captured with IMAX (R) Cameras, join Qian Qian on an exciting new adventure in the mountains of Sichuan as she takes her first steps outside her protected habitat, discovering her true animal nature... even as she faces the challenges of the unknown.

  • This absorbing film...manages to pack a lot of information - and some real drama - into its 40-minute running time.

  • "Pandas" does its subject justice and is a reminder of the importance of protecting endangered species and preserving the environment when these values have fallen from official favor.

  • By the time it's all said and done, you don't just want to help save the pandas, you want to take one home with you.

  • The film creates an immersive experience with sweeping views of the mountains of Sichuan, but while the scenery is stunning, the focus stays on the bamboo-loving Qian Qian and her struggles in her new environment.

    Apr 5, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • So visually dynamic that even the most pedantic (think Neil deGrasse Tyson level) skeptics will probably not mind listening to narrator Kristen Bell - speaking for writer-co-director Drew Fellman - rattle off 43 minutes' worth of cutesy panda trivia.

  • About as perfect as IMAX nature documentaries can get: informative, family-friendly, beautifully and immersively photographed, and so adorable that my scribbled screening notes are full of trenchant observations like "SO FUZZY!"
