Disneynature, Walt Disney’s new green sector, will celebrate Earth Day, April 22, 2009 with the debut of, Earth
. This miraculous, environmental adaptation is from the award-winning British producer/director Alastair Fothergill, who created the “Planet Earth” series (BBC and The Discovery Channel) and “The Blue Planet.”
Narrated by James Earl Jones, Earth
follows the astonishing year-long journey of three animal families: the Polar Bears, the African Elephants and the Humpback Whales. The cinematography captures wildlife in its intimate moments in unimaginable scale. Even if you’ve rented this documentary series on DVD, watching on big screen will be a great visual experience.
If you purchase a ticket for the first week of the showing, Disney will plant a tree in your honor in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, considered the most endangered rainforest in the world.
Jean-François Camilleri, executive vice president and general manger of Disneynature, said: “The public is looking for films like EARTH that are entertaining, educational, show nature’s beauty and are environmentally conscious. What better way to celebrate the opening of this epic film than by planting trees on behalf of our moviegoers!”
Tickets are now on sale through the film’s website at www.disney.com/earth.
