Anyone who has seen Kristen Bell break down in (happy) hysterics over a sloth knows the actress' affinity for animals, especially those of the cute and cuddly variety."Pandas," from David Douglas and Drew Fellman, takes audiences to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in China where scientists are working toward a goal of releasing captive-born pandas into the wild, where only about 2,000 remain alive.The film focuses in on one, Qian Qian (pronounced Chen Chen), from cub stage to her supervised release in the wild and the humans trying to make that happen. At Kilham's suggestion, Panda Base hired American conservation biologist Jake Owens, whom Douglas calls "the Indiana Jones of biologists," to help supervise Qian Qian's transition from city panda to country panda.Bell, who got involved later in the process, didn't meet the pandas but hopes that one day she will.
