Today is Earth Day! Did you do anything to celebrate?
In honor of the day here is a beautiful fox:
How does this picture relate to Earth Day? Well, it is a wild creature which we should help preserve and it is curled up in a round shape like the Earth! Yeah, that is it. Who needs an excuse to post such a cute picture anyways?
Also, don’t forget that if you go to see Disneynature’s Bears this week Disney will donate money in your honor to the National Park Foundation!
I saw Bears and it was really good! Brown Bears are powerful creatures and Disney does a great job of story telling even with wild subjects. The footage during the credits showing some of how the film makers do their work is well worth watching as well.
Disneynature’s next movie in theaters in time for next years Earth Day will be Monkey Kingdom. A movie about a troupe of monkeys which live in ancient ruins in the jungles of South Asia.
Disneynature’s new movie Bears is out in theaters today!
The movie follows a mother brown bear and her two cubs as the cubs experience life in Alaska outside their den for the first time.
If you see Bears opening week Disney will make a donation to the National Park Foundation to help protect wildlife and the places they call home. This corresponds with Earth Day, which is next week Tuesday.
Opening in movie theatres today is Disney’s African Cats.
The movie tells the story of two families of big cats, the cheetah family and the lion family. The cubs are so cute! Proceeds from the first week will go towards saving the Savanna. To see clips and read more, see Disneynature African Cats.
I saw the movie earlier today, and I highly recommend it. Disney manages to tell a good story about the trials and triumphs of these cats, while still leaving the film appropriate for younger viewers. I do warn you though, there are hunting scenes in which the big cats catch their prey. They are fairly artful without blood, but there is a scene of the lions eating in which they have blood on their mouths. I am totally fine with this truth of nature, but some of the parents with little kids at the movie were a bit upset – so I figured I would put that information out there.
