Kristen Bell to narrate Pandas documentary
Kristen Bell is going from The Good Place to the adorable place.
The actress will narrate the upcoming IMAX documentary Pandas, about a group of researchers trying to introduce captive-born cubs into the wild. EW has an exclusive first look at the trailer and poster for the film, which follows a tiny young panda cub named Qian Qian from her early life at the Chengdu Panda Base in China to her first forays into the wild mountains of Sichuan.
The researchers’ goal? To help protect the declining wild panda population by introducing pandas like Qian Qian. For help and insight, the Chinese researchers team up with a New Hampshire black bear rehab facility on the other side of the globe, and the result is an adorable, family-friendly story chronicling how Qian Qian and her friends learn how to best be bears. (If the trailer is any indication, learning to be a panda involves a lot of falling down.)
David Douglas and Drew Fellman (who previously teamed up for Born to be Wild and Island of Lemurs: Madagascar) directed Pandas, which will open April 6 in select IMAX theaters.
