Meet Tao Tao in an exclusive Born in China clip
Disneynature has provided ComingSoon.net with an exclusive clip from Born in China which introduces you to Tao Tao, a golden snub-nosed monkey. Monkeys have long been seen as figures of rebellion and mischief in Chinese folk tales. And one of the most mischievous monkeys on this mountain is TaoTao.
Narrated by John Krasinski (13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, The Office, the upcoming 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 snub-nosed 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 April 21, 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.
