Meryl Streep to narrate IMAX film 'To the Arctic 3D'

Two-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep will narrate To The Arctic 3D, a film which tells the tale of a mother polar bear and her two seven-month-old cubs as they struggle to survive in the unforgiving Arctic wilderness. The film is the first co-production from Warner Bros. Pictures, MacGillivray Freeman Films and IMAX Corporation.

"To The Arctic was filmed entirely in 15/70mm with spectacular shots designed to take full advantage of the IMAX 3D format, and the story and setting will be made even more powerful by Meryl Streep's unmatched artistry," said Greg MacGillivray, President of MacGillivray Freeman Films and director of To The Arctic. "This is MacGillivray Freeman's third collaboration with Meryl, and we are delighted to pair her prodigious talents with this emotional story of family and hope."

"The most enduring relationship is that between a mother and child, which is powerfully portrayed through the polar bear family in To The Arctic," added Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. "Greg MacGillivray's engaging storytelling combined with the strength of the Warner Bros. and IMAX partnership will deliver for audiences an inspiring glimpse into how the ties between family prevail above all else."

To The Arctic 3D is scheduled to be released exclusively to IMAX theaters starting April 20.
