Popcorn Love: Island of Lemurs 2014, Imax 3-D Documentary In Theaters Now
According to Island of Lemurs narrator Morgan Freeman, “lemurs are the most ancient primate alive today!” Another fun fact: “Madagascar is the only place on earth where they live.”
Those amazing truths make Warner Brother Studios latest family film a must-see, asap. Mommynoire was on hand at the Island of Lemurs press junket at The Ritz Carlton Hotel in sunny Los Angeles a few weeks ago to catch up with the stars of the educational and inspirational documentary. At the once in a lifetime junket, Mommynoire was able to capture snapshots of the vivid film, which follows the interests of primatologist and anthropologist Dr. Patricia C. Wright, whose life mission is to preserve the cute and cuddly lemurs, who are also endangered.
Armed with cameras and world renowned scientists, the film takes families on a journey through Madagascar’s ancient rain forests. What’s super special about the film, other than Dr. Wright’s passion for lemurs is actor Morgan Freeman’s witty narration, which is truly engaging.
Blown by the energy and the excitement of the press – we were even more surprised by two special visitors who showed up! Yes, on hand with their handlers were two adorable lemurs – one by the name of Felix, who is 10 years-old, and the other, Taj, who is 7 years old.
In summary, the Island of Lemurs is an ideal educational documentary for children and adults. The film teaches about conservation and why its so important to protect these adorable lemurs from extinction. After hearing Dr. Wright chronicle the successes and challenges of the film, she noticeably mentioned something that sums up the flow of Island of Lemurs – “I think we love lemurs because they take life in a very kind of relaxed, easy way.”
We can all appreciate that.
