If you liked March of the Penguins but found the setting to be a little too Antarctic, this is the movie for you. Born to be Wild 3D, a nature documentary by Jane Goodall’s Wild Chimpanzees director David Lickley, follows two crews of conservationists as they work to rescue orphaned elephants and orangutans in Kenya and Borneo, respectively. It also happens to be narrated by Morgan Freeman, who also lent his soothing pipes to Penguins. Come for the cute animals; stay for? the cute animals.
