Disney Wings of Life
For a long time my image of Disney was
their cartoons. I knew they made live action family films, but was not
very aware of their nature films. Disney Wings of Life is a movie all
about the pollinators. Although some of the pollinators referenced in
Disney Wings of Life do not have any wings whatsoever.
This eighty minute film is narrated by Meryl Streep. She gives a voice to the flowers. She references how they reproduce thanks to the symbiotic relationship with insects, bats, birds, and others. Which makes me realize both of these species had to have been put here at the exact same time.
Disney Wings of Life is generally safe for families. It does touch on two extremely controversial and divisive topics. Disney Wings of Life express a belief in old earth. It also states a religious belief in evolution. There were no such fair references to young earth or creationism. If the Fairness Doctrine were in place, Disney Wings of Life would violate it for not giving equal time to opposing viewpoints.
The visuals in Disney Wings of Life are absolutely beautiful. I enjoyed seeing the birds, bees, and trees. The bats had cute little babies, and I marveled at how far they flew for a meal. Definitely way outside the range of what can be smelled. So how they are guided their at the right time is astounding.
The same with the life cycle of the Monarch Butterflies. It shows an amazing intelligent design. I do question bees being taken out of their area and put into a new one for pollination. I wonder if that is why they do not return to their hives. They get out of sorts from where their home actually is.
Near the end Disney Wings of Life goes a little over the top in its Chicken Little the sky is falling theme. I do like the ideas it presented at the end for growing a garden, and planting flowers. Cynics would point out that is big business and those big businesses benefit from your purchases. Hence they are happy to have products like Disney Wings of Life on the market telling you to spend money on their products.
I am one of those people who suffers from allergies, so flowers are not my thing. But ever since I got married I love to grow fruits and vegetables. Humans are one of the biggest pollinators that plants have. It is a mutually beneficial relationship.
