Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman narrates the IMAX 3D documentary “Island of Lemurs: Madagascar,” the incredible true story of nature’s greatest explorers: lemurs. 

Captured with IMAX 3D cameras, the film takes audiences on a spectacular journey to the remote and wondrous world of Madagascar, where lemurs arrived millions of years ago as castaways. They’ve since evolved into hundreds of diverse species, but are now highly endangered.

"Island of Lemurs: Madagascar" highlights the tireless efforts of trailblazing scientist Dr. Patricia C. Wright and her lifelong mission to help these strange and adorable creatures survive in the modern world.

Aye-aye-inspired music is my new favorite genre!

Quite an unusual combination: a lemur and a kangaroo chase each other around.
