National Parks Featured In IMAX Movie & TV Series

Dozens of national parks will be featured in an upcoming IMAX 3D film that is scheduled to be released in early 2016.

On February 12, 2016, a new giant screen film, “National Parks Adventure”, will be released around the world, and will feature narration by Robert Redford.

Produced by MacGillivray Freeman Films along with Brand USA, the destination marketing organization for the United States, the film follows mountaineer Conrad Anker, his stepson Max Lowe, and family friend Rachel Pohl as they explore the beauty and natural wonders of parks like Rocky Mountain, Devils Tower, Katmai, Canyonlands, Everglades, Congaree, Redwood, Yellowstone, and more. Many national parks helped make this filming possible.

Produced as a tribute to the National Park Service’s Centennial, the film also journeys back to the early days of the parks, recreating John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt’s famous three-day camping trip in Yosemite.

The film is the centerpiece of Brand USA’s Great Outdoors campaign, which promotes America’s lands and waters to international visitors.

While shooting “National Parks Adventure”, MacGillivray Freeman also produced an eight-part TV series in collaboration with the Travel Channel called, “America. The Beautiful.” The series is also narrated by Robert Redford and features parks, national forests, state parks, and a variety of public lands and waters. The series began airing on the Travel Channel last month. The series will likely air again in February 2016 with the release of the IMAX film.

MacGillivray Freeman has been making large screen films for fifty years, with 38 films to date, including award winners such as “Everest,” “The Living Sea,” and “To Fly.” Their films frequently focus on the natural world, inspiring audiences to both explore and protect natural resources, and each film is accompanied by uniquely designed educational outreach programs that broaden the film-going experience for students.

Below is a short overview of the movie:
