This Just in: Pandas Make John Krasinski Cry
You guys, it seems we have more in common with John Krasinski than we thought. Pandas—more specifically, baby ones—make us cry, too.
Born in China, directed by filmmaker Lu Chuan and narrated by Krasinski, takes viewers on a journey that explores the circle of life for three different animal species unique to China—pandas, snow leopards and golden monkeys.
As many will recall, Krasinski first tugged at our heartstrings as the dorky (yet totally cute) salesman Jim Halpert on The Office. Now it's time to apply some waterproof mascara, because if Jim and Pam’s Niagra Falls vows gave you the feels, the new baby animal documentary (produced by Disneynature and hitting theaters nationwide this weekend) has the power to make even grown men blubber.
Case in point: While doing press for the film, Krasinski admitted he couldn’t help but think about his own wife and kids—Devil Wears Prada goddess, Emily Blunt and daughters Hazel and Violet—while narrating the film. "I relate probably way too much," he said. "The movie is about what it takes to raise kids, the sacrifices that need to be made and the moment of letting them go."
