Disney Nature Earth Review and Giveaway...

My family got to review the Disneynature Earth Blu-ray. This movie is great! You not only get the HD quality of Blu-ray but it's filmed in some of the most beautiful places on Earth! You get to see breathtaking waterfalls, mountains, deserts, oceans and plenty more. The plot of the movie says it follows 3 families, polar bears, elephants and humpback whales. But it covers so much more than that. There are so many animals it talks about.

I thought it was funny when this male bird is trying to impress a girl bird so it's all puffed out and dancing around. Then the narrator, James Earl Jones, talks about the bird that's cleaning up his area to get ready for his date but the girl bird stands him up. The narrator keeps you entertained through out the movie.

I loved watching the baby polar bears trying to walk across the snowy mountain for the first time when they had never even seen snow before. It was so cute watching the baby ducks take their first flight or should I say dive out of the tree. They didn't have wings yet and couldn't fly but they landed on a pile of leaves so they didn't get hurt.

It was also cool to see the elephants circle around their young ones to protect them from the lions that were trying to eat them.

The special features have Earth Diaries, the making of the movie. This is really interesting to watch them talk about the special cameras used on the edge of the helicopter to get some of the great scenery shots. It took 5 years to make this movie. 45 camera people, over 2000 days in the field, 204 locations and 62 countries. I also liked when they showed a hungry male polar bear trying to get into their shack they were staying in to get some food.

This is a good movie that people of any age will enjoy.



Walt Disney Home Studios Entertainment will release "DisneyNature: Earth" on DVD and Blu-ray on September 1st, 2009. This movie has some spectacular vistas and journeys the Earth from pole to pole. Award-winning filmmakers Alastair Fothergill ("The Blue Planet") and Mark Linfield ("Planet Earth") bring Earth's stunning brilliance to the screen. The movie is also narrated by James Earl Jones.

"Earth" is available in a single-disc DVD or two-disc Blu-ray Hi-Def/DVD Combo Pack and includes bonus features that offer viewers an in-depth look at the making of the film and an opportunity to learn more about our planet and its myriad fascinating inhabitants. In Blu-ray, the film gives audiences an unmatched opportunity to view its dizzying aerial photography, epic backdrops and rare footage of land, sea and air in astonishing high definition.

Bonus Features for Earth...

Both Blu-ray Hi-Def and DVD include...

• Earth Diaries — The making of Disneynature’s first feature film

Exclusive Blu-ray Hi-Def bonus features take audiences deeper into the fascinating mysteries of Earth, including:

• Filmmaker’s Annotations — An in-movie experience with pop up facts

In the Arctic, a mother polar bear trailed by her two cubs searches for food as their icy hunting grounds melt away. A herd of African elephants slowly traverses the arid Kalahari Desert toward the water-rich Okavango Delta. A humpback whale and her calf make a 4,000-mile journey in an epic migration that takes them from tropical waters all the way to Antarctica. Remarkable high-definition footage follows these creatures and more to places human beings rarely see, capturing unique worlds populated by Mandarin ducks and birds of paradise, as well as a pride of lions and a vast caribou herd. Filled with
surprising facts and extraordinary images, Earth is a dazzling portrait of life on our planet.
