Nature has orchestrated a perfect symphony in which every species has a distinct role in a larger story—the balance of an entire ecosystem. In this film for all ages, you will follow the newest members of the animal cast as they imitate their parents and embark on their life’s journeys. Prepare to be awed by this immersive giant-screen film about how nature works in one of the world’s greatest ecosystems.
