Blue Whales: Return of the Giants 3D takes viewers on a journey of a lifetime to explore the world of the magnificent blue whale—a species rebounding from the brink of extinction. Blue whales are the largest animals ever to have lived, bigger than any dinosaur, yet we know surprisingly little about them. Joined by a cast of supporting characters, from dolphins and sperm whales to sea lions and orcas, the blue whale finally gets a turn in the spotlight—in life-size on the giant screen!
