Galapagos 3D Trailer
In the vastness of the Pacific Ocean, there is a paradise unlike any other: the Galapagos. Amongst these remote volcanic islands, life has played out over millions of years in relative isolation. The result is a wonderland of nature, with a remarkable collection of plants and charismatic animals that have all adapted to this unique environment.
Meet giant half-ton tortoises and marine iguanas that spit sea-salt. Dance with the tropical albatrosses and hunt fishes with the colorful blue-footed boobies. Swim with tiny penguins thousands of miles away from their natural habitats. This is a story of discovery, of survival against the odds, and of nature's ingenuity, all brought to life in stunning 3D.
Shot in 4K 3D
Galapagos 3D was filmed in 4K resolution and native 3D on location over a 10-month period in 2012, and the entire production lasted 15 months.
