UNDER THE SEA 3D, the newest IMAX 3D underwater adventure from the award-winning filmmakers behind Deep Sea 3D, will transport audiences to uniquely exotic locations in the Asia-Pacific region, including The Great Barrier Reef, Southern Australia, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia, to experience face-to-face encounters with some of the ocean’s most mysterious and unusual creatures.

UNDER THE SEA 3D will also offer an inspirational and entertaining way to explore the impact that global climate change has had on our ocean wilderness. The filmmaking team has captured some of the most extraordinary marine life ever shot on film, including the Stonefish - the world's most venomous fish - and a new species of shark yet to be described by science.

Audiences will also be treated to an up-close look at South Australia's exquisite Leafy Sea Dragon and the endangered puppy-like Sea Lion - animals that can be found nowhere else on Earth.

Filmed with the IMAX 3D camera, the highest resolution motion picture camera ever created, UNDER THE SEA 3D will immerse audiences in this amazing underwater world as never before - bringing them face-to-face with these magical creatures.

“For Under the Sea 3D we've travelled to some of the most exotic locations on this planet, allowing us to film many creatures for the first time," said Howard Hall. “Through IMAX 3D, audiences will be immersed fully into this amazing undersea world - a world which only a few of us lucky individuals really get to see up close."

“The dazzling colours and amazing animals we see from South Australia to the Indo-Pacific are made for the grand scale and intensity of IMAX 3D," said Toni Myers, the film's producer, editor and writer. "But these spectacular yet delicate ecosystems are threatened by climate change. It's vitally important to promote awareness of that, especially among the young people who will be the stewards of our planet's health and well-being."
