This Friday, Disneynature is bringing to the big screen their latest animal documentary, Born in China. Narrated by John Krasinski, the film explores the lives of three different animal families. As producer Roy Conli explains in a conversation with CS, it’s the animals themselves who revealed the right stories to director Luan Chuan and an international assembly of filmmaking talent.

Continuing a tradition that has endured at Disney since Walt’s own True Life Adventure films, 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.
