Humpback whales come to life in IMAX

Humpback whales will be coming to life on the big screen at the Royal B.C. Museum this summer.

Humpback whales will be coming to life on the big screen at the Royal B.C. Museum this summer.

Humpback Whales is a documentary, narrated by Ewan McGregor that asks the question: what might life be like from a humpback’s point of view?

The whales existed in almost every ocean in the world at one point, but were nearly driven to extinction 50 years ago and are starting to make a slow recovery, which is documented in the film.

“Whales are awesome,” said director Greg MacGillivary. “They are critical to the ecological health and survival of the ocean, and since they are among the largest animals to ever live on earth, there is no better subject for audiences to experience life-size on the giant screen.”

The film is the third to be released under MacGillivary Freeman’s One World One Ocean series, following To the Arctic and Journey to the South Pacific.

The 55-foot, 50-ton aquatic mammals will be brought to life on the IMAX Victoria screen starting today (June 19).
