Acclaimed actress Meryl Streep will supply narration for To The Arctic 3D, an upcoming copro between IMAX Corporation, MacGillivray Freeman Films and Warner Bros. Pictures.

The film, set to debut in select IMAX films in April of this year, follows the journey of a mother polar bear and her two seven-month-old cubs as they navigate the treacherous Arctic environment.

To The Arctic was filmed entirely in 15/70mm with spectacular shots designed to take full advantage of the IMAX 3D format, and the story and setting will be made even more powerful by Meryl Streep’s unmatched artistry,” said Greg MacGillivray, president, MacGillivray Freeman Films and director of the film. “This is MacGillivray Freeman’s third collaboration with Meryl, and we are delighted to pair her prodigious talents with this emotional story of family and hope.”

Streep most recently earned a Golden Globe award for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in Phyllida Lloyd’s The Iron Lady. She has won two Oscars and has been nominated for an Academy Award 17 times, counting her most recent nomination for her Iron Lady performance.

The two other MacGillivray Films projects that Streep has narrated are The Living Sea and Hurricane on the Bayou.
