Narrated by two-time Golden Globe® nominee
Ewan McGregor, Humpback Whales is an
extraordinary journey into the mysterious
world of one of nature’s most awe-inspiring
marine mammals. Set in the spectacular
waters of Alaska, Hawaii and the remote
islands of Tonga, this ocean adventure offers
audiences an up-close look at how these
whales communicate, sing, feed, play and
take care of their young. Captured for the
first time with IMAX® 3D cameras, and found
in every ocean on earth, humpbacks were nearly driven to extinction 50 years ago, but today are making a slow but remarkable recovery. Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the humpback and find out why humpbacks are the most acrobatic of all whales, why they sing their haunting songs, and why these intelligent 55-foot, 50-ton animals migrate up to 10,000 miles round-trip every year.
