There are an array of animals in DisneyNature’s new film, Born in China.
There are pandas, golden monkeys, yaks, red pandas, cranes and snow leopards — and the snow leopard story in the film is one that will tear your heart apart.
“I think most people would think I related to the monkey the most, but we had recently had our second daughter when I had gone in to record this, and so the snow leopard story really just completely gutted me,” narrator John Krasinki told Yahoo.
He adds, “It’s inspiring to know that this sort of love and commitment to your kids at all costs is inside each and every one of us. In human terms, everyone’s heard the story of the mother picking up a car to save her child. And to know that that’s in us is really inspiring.”
“So seeing her [the snow leopard mom] go through that whole adventure with these beautiful, adorable cubs, but also this incredibly treacherous and intense situation, was really moving and powerful to me.”
Born in China is out TOMORROW, April 21st. During its’ opening week, Disneynature will make a donation in your honor to World Wildlife Fund to benefit wild pandas and snow leopards.
