I had major trepidations about Disney Earth. My experience with the current crop of nature films is they blame humans for every little thing going on - on our planet. Thanks to a wonderful lady (you know who you are), I gave Disney Earth a chance. Boy am I glad I did. There is no environmental preaching in this film. It shows the majestic beauty of nature in so many environments. Polar bears, to forest creatures, to the rainforest, to the desert, and back to frozen tundra.
Visually speaking Disney Earth is fantastic. There is so much beauty in this film that mere words can not describe them. The many waterfalls, sunrises, sunsets, and animals need to be seen. There is some mild violence as hunters are shown trying to take down their prey. The worst image was a Great White Shark biting a seal. I also had to explain to a four year old why a polar bear was biting the head of a sea lion.
James Earl Jones does a masterful job of narrating Disney Earth. He does a good job with balance, and stating facts. The complexity of our planet is simply astounding to me. It takes an intellect way beyond mine to be able to design such an intricate system. Disney Earth has some fantastic music that fits the theme of the movie quite naturally.
The package Family Friendly Gaming received contained the Blu-ray, and DVD. The Making of the movie is a fantastic bonus feature. The Blu-ray also contains filmmaker annotation. There are plenty of reasons to watch this movie over and over again in my humble opinion. There are some fascinating sneak peeks on this disc.
Disney Earth contains some tiny text on the menu screens that is rather difficult to read. I had to get closer than I normally do. The storyline that shows the seasonal cycle of our planet is fascinating indeed. Animals live and die in real life, and Disney Earth touches upon this. Thankfully there are no gruesome images shown in this movie. Children enjoyed seeing the animals as much as I did.
I wound up learning things (or re-learning) things by watching Disney
Earth. There are some great lessons about nature contained on this
Blu-ray disc (and DVD). I am constantly amazed at the diversity of God’s
Creation on our planet. The tilt of the planet earth is one of the most
interesting facts. I would love to see a sequel in this franchise
