My son has always had a love for animals- the Panda being one of his favorites! On his first day of Kindergarten, we had to take pictures of “Panda” doing things without Justin at home. He got such a kick out of it, we did it for the first day of First Grade too. After that, he informed us he was too old for “Panda” pictures.
I have to admit, the Golden Snub-nosed Monkeys were my favorite in the movie. They are naturally curious and funny. They have unique personalities and the narration of Born in China really brought them to life.

Did you know that during cold winter nights, a snow leopard’s tail can function as a scarf, wrapping around their body to help keep them warm.

Narrated by John Krasinski (“13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” NBC’s “The Office,” “Amazon’s “Jack Ryan”), Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure film “Born In China” takes an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured.
Following the stories of three animal families, the film transports audiences to some of the most extreme environments on Earth to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film. A doting panda bear mother guides her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence. A two-year-old golden monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts. And a mother snow leopard—an elusive animal rarely caught on camera—faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet.
Featuring stunning, never-before-seen imagery, the film navigates China’s vast terrain—from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest—on the wings of red-crowned cranes, seamlessly tying the extraordinary tales together. Opening in U.S. theaters on Earth Day 2017, “Born in China” is directed by accomplished Chinese filmmaker Lu Chuan, and produced by Disney’s Roy Conli and renowned nature filmmakers Brian Leith and Phil Chapman.
