Last year we took out daughter to watch her first IMAX film at the age of three. The film was Born to be Wild, an endearing story of two women living in different countries, but both running orphanages for baby animals: one for elephants and the other for orangutans.
Narrated by Morgan Freeman, “IMAX: Born to be Wild” enchanted my daughter the whole way through. What’s not to love about a bunch of baby orangutans leaping around in diapers and baby elephants being bottle-fed?
This film documents orphaned orangutans and elephants and the extraordinary people who rescue and raise them—saving endangered species one life at a time. Stunningly captured in IMAX 3D, “Born to be Wild” is a heart-warming adventure transporting moviegoers into the lush rainforests of Borneo with world-renowned primatologist Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas, and across the rugged Kenyan savannah with celebrated elephant authority Dame Daphne M. Sheldrick, as they and their teams rescue, rehabilitate and return these incredible animals back to the wild.
We loved it so much, that we took abuelita, la tía and Camila´s prima (my niece!) to watch it when they came to visit from El Salvador. Today we skyped with them and showed them the cover of the Blu-ray Combo pack we had received and my niece´s remark was: “¡Qué chivo! Y porqué lo tienen?!” She clearly remembered loving it and was a tad jealous we have a copy of the movie!
If you haven’t had a chance to check it out in IMAX, then I strongly encourage you to get a copy of IMAX: Born to be Wild available on Blu-ray Combo pack, DVD and for download starting today. Everyone in the family will enjoy it and it will open up so many amazing conversations and teaching moments about our earth, family, conservation, endangered species and more.
