Disney is looking to burst hearts with its new nature documentary, “Born In China”.
Narrated by swoon-worthy former “The Office” star John Krasinski, the feature centres around three special animals as they take audiences through their lives in China’s vast terrains.
“I’ve been a huge fan of the Disneynature films for a really long time,” said Krasinski in a statement. “I think I’ve seen them all a couple times and to be asked to be a part of something that I feel is not only so beautiful and such great storytelling, but is so important, I was honoured to be a part of it. To find this unbelievable landscape that was far beyond the cities and the bustling crowds of the China that I thought I knew was just fascinating.”
And just in time for National Panda Day, Krasinski is treating fans to a “fun fact” about one of the film’s main stars.
Ya Ya is an adult female panda who gives audiences a glimpse into the mysterious world of panda-rearing before she steps out into the world with her new cub.
Now, if you can’t wait for the film to be released and you’re dying to know more about one of the world’s most elusive animals, Krasinski’s got you covered.
Ya Ya is joined in the film by a 2-year-old golden monkey, who is dealing with the addition of a new baby sister, and a mother snow leopard, who must raise her two cubs in one of China’s most treacherous landscapes.
The seventh theatrical Disneynature film is directed by Chinese filmmaker Lu Chuan and hits theatres conveniently on Earth Day, April 22.
