This Earth Day comes with a new movie release Disneynature: Born In China and something you do not want to miss, from adorable pandas to snow leopards the cuteness is in overload.
What is Earth Day?
Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events in more than 193 countries are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network.
Whilst at the #Cars3Event I got the chance to screen this amazing movie, it opens in theaters on April 21st and if you see it during the opening week, Disneynature adds a contrubution to the WWF (World Wildlife Fund), they will be helping to protect the wild pandas and snow leopards.
Whilst watching Born In China, I felt so many emotions, mainly happiness, fear and a little sadness, there was also some humorous moments that made me laugh out loud. Born In China tells a story and follows 3 animal families through the breathtaking and beautiful wilderness of China.
You will first see the red-crowned crane that is seen as a symbol of fidelity, good luck, love and long life in the Orient. You will follow the journey of Ya-Ya the Panda, a first time mother who takes care of her daughter and faces challenges with her daughter as she grows bigger. Ya-Ya is a loving and gentle panda who will totally steal your heart.
Monkeys are funny, you will follow the adventures of snub nosed monkeys, the youngest isn’t getting enough attention with their being a new baby in the family and leaves to join another bands of monkeys, the lost boys who get into lots of mischief!
You’ll see a beautiful Snow Leopard who cares and protects her cubs, a single mother who needs to keep her cubs safe, find them a home, feed them and care for her precious babies.
Born In China is narrated by John Krasinski from The Office, he certainly adds his wit and humor to the movie and I think he did a marvelous job all round.
Born In China opens in theaters everywhere on April 21st!
About Born In China
Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure film “Born In China” takes an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured. Following the stories of three animal families, the film transports audiences to some of the most extreme environments on Earth to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film. A doting panda bear mother guides her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence. A two-year-old golden monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts. And a mother snow leopard—an elusive animal rarely caught on camera—faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet. Featuring stunning, never-before-seen imagery, the film navigates China’s vast terrain—from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest—on the wings of red-crowned cranes, seamlessly tying the extraordinary tales together. Opening in U.S. theaters on Earth Day 2017, “Born in China” is directed by accomplished Chinese filmmaker Lu Chuan, and produced by Disney’s Roy Conli and renowned nature filmmakers Brian Leith and Phil Chapman.
