Blue Whales are the largest animal that has ever lived, bigger than any dinosaur. Once on the verge of extinction, these gentle giants have returned. They are supreme wanderers, roaming every ocean from the Gulf of California’s vibrant waters to the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean. Join an adventure of a lifetime where no scientists have explored before and discover a long-lost Blue Whale pod. Learn how they communicate with each across vast distances and how they are vital to the health of our oceans. What the expedition reveals will astonish you. Narrated by award-winning actor Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings, Star Wars) with a powerful score by Academy-Award winner Steven Price (Gravity), experience Blue Whales for the first time, life-size on the giant screen.
