Who doesn’t love cute and cuddly pandas?

Now, you can watch them in the wild in the new IMAX documentary “Pandas,” set to open Friday, April 6, at The Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park. It’s narrated by actress Kristen Bell (“Frozen,” The Good Place” and “Veronica Mars”).

The film follows a scientist from the Chengdu Panda Base in China as they prepare captive-born panda cubs for re-introduction to the wild, specifically one special panda named Qian Qian.

“I am thrilled to team up with IMAX and Warner Bros. Pictures to help tell this incredible story in the larger-than-life IMAX format,” Bell said of the film, which is directed by David Douglas and Drew Fellman.

“Pandas not only spotlights the important work being done to protect these beloved and ridiculously cute animals, but it provides us with inspiration and hope and showcases the great things we can achieve when we work together.”

The film is rated G.
