See Born In China This Earth Day!

Disney’s Born In China is the latest Earth Day release form Walt Disney Studios. It is full of educational insight, but done in such a way that engages kids and really holds their attention. My family and I attended an early screening of the movie, and we really enjoyed it!

Disneynature, in its ongoing quest to bring the natural world to the big screen as never before, presents its most ambitious project to date, taking moviegoers on a grand journey into the wilds of China. “Born In China” follows the adventures of three animal families—the majestic panda, the savvy golden monkey and the elusive snow leopard.

The film does an incredible job capturing the vast terrain—from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest—on the wings of a red-crowned crane, showcasing remarkably intimate family moments captured on film for the first time ever. It was really cool not only to see the animals in their natural habitat, but to see them in each season—Summer, Fall, Winter, & Spring. You are invited in on an adventure along side of the featured animals—the Giant Panda, Golden Snub Nosed Monkey & Snow Lepored. You also get to see a few glimpses of the Red-Crowned Cranes & Chiru. 

You get to see the circle of life in an uplifting way. There were many memorable moments from the film that made us laugh and pulled at our heart strings. Pretty much anything the baby Panda does makes me want to jump through that screen and cuddle her. I also hurt for the mama Snow Leopard trying her hardest to provide for her two cubs. It really is an amazing film. It helps start the discussion of the circle of life and conservation with your kids. 

I absolutely love the effort that Disneynature is putting forth to help these animals, shed some light, start conversations, and help educate! See Born in China opening week and Disneynature will make a donation in your honor to World Wildlife Fund to benefit wild pandas and snow leopards. It is the perfect family film to see this weekend!
