Ryan Reynolds to narrate British Columbia documentary GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST,

February 18, 2019 Visit USA No Comments Email Email

Spirit Bear Entertainment and MacGillivray Freeman Films have announced celebrity
A-Lister Ryan Reynolds is the confirmed narrator of Great Bear Rainforest set in one of the planet’s most exquisite and secluded wilderness locations in British Columbia, Canada.

The worldwide premier will be released in select IMAX and Giant Screen Theatres in the Northern Hemisphere on 15 February, 2019.  Dates for release in Australia are anticipated to be in the later half of 2019 and early 2020 in Melbourne and Sydney.

Hidden from the outside world, British Columbia –  Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest is home to an immense array of wildlife, including the fabled all-white Spirit Bear—the rarest bear on earth—and the indigenous First Nations, who have provided stewardship of the forest for millennia.  Great Bear Rainforest is the first time this wildlife-rich world will be experienced in IMAX and giant screen theatres.

“We can’t think of a more perfect fit for this project than Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds,” says director Ian McAllister, who is also Canadian and has lived and worked in the Great Bear Rainforest for 30 years.  “Ryan is a wonderful representative for the ongoing conservation of this globally significant rainforest which is part of his Canadian heritage and we are thrilled he will be our narrator.”

“I want my children to know there is still an area in this world that has remained wild, and will remain that way, because of the long history of stewardship shown by indigenous people” says Ryan Reynolds.  “I hope this film inspires the younger generation that there is hope for the future if we all work together and take care of our planet’s remaining wild places.”
