I am extra excited about our upcoming IMAX film Born To Be Wild 3D – opening a week from Friday!

It’s 45 minutes of baby elephants and teeny tiny orangutans, narrated by Morgan Freeman. It’s going to be like having a baritone comfort blanket wrapped around animal eye candy – and it’s inspiring to boot:

The film “documents orphaned orangutans and elephants and the extraordinary people who rescue and raise them—saving endangered species one life at a time.”

What’s not to love?

While you’re anxiously awaiting the release date, the makers of the film have released several fascinating behind-the-scenes webisodes from the production of the film. This one is from Camp Leakey, “a legendary place…Camp Leakey has this reputation as one of the foundations of biology.”

Take a tour of the camp with Dr. Birute Mary Galdikas, who established the wild orangutan research camp and rehabilitation center at Camp Leakey 40 years ago.
