RYAN REYNOLDS’ RAINFOREST RAPTURE: HOLLYWOOD STAR EXCITED TO TELL IMAX STORY THAT HITS CLOSE TO HOME

Fun-loving movie star is dead serious about adding his voice to the protection of one of the world's most pristine natural habitats.

Ryan Reynolds is thrilled he can actually take his two young kids to see his new movie.

Unlike his Deadpool work, the new IMAX documentary Great Bear Rainforest is the perfect project to share with his two- and four-year-old daughters.

Speaking from his home in New York City recently, Reynolds said he has seen a non-IMAX theatre version of the film but is really excited to see it in the big format with his family. Great Bear Rainforest hits IMAX theatres on Feb. 15.

“I am most excited to take my kids,” said Reynolds before cracking a joke, in true Reynolds style. “They’re going to hate the narrator, but they are going to love what they see.”

The Ian McAllister-directed film takes viewers to the remote area on the northwest coast of B.C. and shows off the pristine landscapes and unique wildlife — the cool and rare spirit bear and the swimming coastal wolves are just two species that call it home — of the 6.4-million hectare Great Bear Rainforest. Part of the largest coastal temperate rainforest in the world, the rainforest is stewarded by local First Nations, who are also highlighted in the film.
