Editor's Note
Shot in IMAX 3D, David Lickley's 40-minute documentary BORN TO BE WILD observes various orphaned jungle animals and their day-to-day behavioral interactions with the individuals who rescue them and raise them to adulthood. The film unfurls in two separate geographic spheres. Half of it takes place in the rain forests of Borneo, where celebrated primatologist Dr. Birute Galdikas assists baby orangutans; the other half takes place on the arid savannahs of Kenya, where zoologist Dame Daphne Sheldrick works with baby elephant calves. The goal, in each case, is not simply rehabilitation but the ultimate return of these animals to the wild, where (it is hoped) they will function freely and independently. Oscar-winner Morgan Freeman narrates; Drew Fellman produced and authored the script.

Expert Review Born to Be Wild 3D (2011) - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Luigi Bastardo Blogcritics.org Reviews

It’s getting so that you can’t make a documentary about animals these days without hiring Morgan Freeman to narrate. Not that I’m complaining, mind you: Mr. Freeman’s awesome voice is a welcomed addition to just about any project. Why, he could even provide his power of speech to an outlandish exploitation schlockumentary title about UFOs and extraterrestrial life like his predecessor Orson Welles did and still make it sound believable. Fortunately, the nature of the IMAX presentation Born to Be Wild 3D is about just that: nature. As such, it stands to reason we can actually take Morgan’s word for everything as gospel....read the full review
