The ocean’s Humpback whales have inspired a 3D giant screen film that will premiere in international theatres. Humpback Whales will take audiences to the underwater world, to the faraway places where Humpbacks live and thrive.

The fifty-foot whales will appear life-size on the giant screen. Audiences will swim alongside them, and be entertained by their high-spirited, full body acrobatics as the whales leap, twirl, lunge and s ...Read More>> lash their way onto the giant screen.
