Lions 3D: Roar of the Kalahari

bigImage An epic drama unfolds in this award-winning giant-screen film from National Geographic and Tim Liversedge Productions, newly transformed into 3D for IMAX and other giant-screen and specialty-venue theaters through state-of-the-art digital remastering. This is the powerful story of a lion king who must wage the battle of his life against a young nomadic lion determined to oust him from his throne. At stake is a valuable waterhole deep in Botswana’s Kalahari Desert, a precious pool of water in a stark and thirsty land. Here the lion king reigns with two lionesses and his litter of cubs, all of whose fate lies in the outcome of this titanic struggle between two Kalahari giants.

Filmed entirely in the wild by renowned filmmaker Tim Liversedge, the film captures the most amazing lion behavior ever to be seen on the giant screen. Lions 3D: Roar of the Kalahari brings audiences face-to-face with all of the natural inhabitants of the African desert who play a role in this drama. Stunning 3D visuals combine with the film’s powerful soundtrack to transport audiences to the middle of the African wilderness as the lion’s thunderous roar literally shakes their seats. Balancing suspense and action with a strong storyline and breakthrough cinematography, the film educates and enlightens audiences of all ages as it transports them on a breathtaking journey across the Kalahari which will live on in their hearts and minds long after night falls and quiet returns to the savannah.
