Protecting Pandas


There are fewer than 2,000 pandas in the wild. People are working to raise that number. Qian Qian (pronounced chen chen) is a panda cub. She lives at Chengdu Panda Base, in China. She stars in a new IMAX movie. It is called Pandas. The film follows Qian Qian (shown below) as she goes into the mountains for the first time.

The film was directed by Drew Fellman (pictured). He told TFK his favorite thing about pandas is how they smell. “They smell like bamboo ice cream,” he said. He also said that pandas are surprisingly fast.

The movie is narrated by Frozen star Kristen Bell. It hits theaters on April 6.
