The Amazing Panda Adventure (1995)

This is a solid movie. 10-year-old Ryan Tyler (Ryan Slater) loves to play Nintendo and watch American Gladiators with his best friend Johnny. His parents have been divorced two years and his father works on a panda preserve in China. Ryan is given airplane tickets to visit but is reluctant to go, afraid that his dad doesn’t want to see him. When he arrives he learns about a panda caught in a trap and her baby cub that was stolen by poachers. Ryan and a bilingual Chinese girl named Ling (Yi Ding) fall through an old bridge into a fast moving river and must find a way back to the safety of their camp.

The film was shot in Chengdu, China and Vancouver, Canada. There are estimated to be between 1,800 to 3,000 living pandas.
