Actress Kristen Bell says she hopes the latest Imax documentary Pandas helps inspire the next generation of biologists and conservationists.

A passionate animal rights activist, Bell narrates the film about a research base in China which endeavours to help get more captive-born pandas in the wild. Bell says the G-rated film is inspiring, adorable and educational and will make audiences feel good. She’s already shown it to her two young daughters.

Pandas is from the filmmakers behind Born to be Wild and Island of Lemurs: Madagascar. It had a limited opening in the US and Canada in April and opens nationwide on Friday.
