Last year Warner Bros. celebrated Earth Day by releasing the Morgan Freeman-narrated IMAX documentary Born to be Wild. How do you top that? For Earth Day 2012, the studio and IMAX Filmed Entertainment enlisted the help of recent Oscar winner Meryl Streep to narrate To the Arctic. The film’s first trailer has arrived and it has us eager to take the journey to the frozen landscapes for the story of these creatures who are gentle giants when it comes to raising their cubs.
The crux of the To the Arctic story follows a single polar bear as she manages a brutal winter trying to raise her two seven-month-old cubs. If they aren’t the cutest animals on film since… well, Born to be Wild. Look for the film April 20.
