About the Movie

Narrated by Morgan Freeman, "Born to be Wild" transports 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 Dr. Dame Daphne M. Sheldrick, as they and their teams rescue, rehabilitate and return these incredible animals back to the wild. David Lickley ("Jane Goodall's Wild Chimpanzees") directed this heartwarming film which documents orphaned orangutans and elephants and the extraordinary people who rescue and raise them-saving endangered species one life at a time.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Some animal parts, it turns out, are perfectly suited to 3-D, none more so than an elephant's trunk. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Apr 7, 2011

Fresh: Given the sheer scale of the format, Imax provides an ideal context in which to experience 3D, allowing the eyes to wander about each periphery-filling frame and focus on whatever catches our interest, the way we do in the real world. – Peter Debruge, Variety, Apr 8, 2011

Fresh: Although it runs just a fleet 40 minutes, the film proves a rich and memorable journey. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Apr 7, 2011

Fresh: A terrific big-screen/3D film about the rescue of baby elephants and orangutans by dedicated humans introduces young people to a strong conservation ethic. – Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter, Jan 4, 2012
