Disneynature Movies are some of my most favorite movies... ever! They are so breathtakingly beautiful and educational and emotional and then they tie in the stories and I am just in love. Me and my girls got to see an advanced screening of Disneynature's latest film, Born In China last week and all I can say is... wow. I mean, I'm going to say more than "wow" but you get my point right?
Narrated by John Krasinski, Disneynature's Born In China follows the stories of three animal families and invites the audience to see a side of China that most don't even know existed, myself included. 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.
Get ready to fall in love with China and all of it's magnificent creatures.
Both of my girls said that the Panda story was their favorite, you'll understand why when you meet Ya Ya and Mei Mei. Follow along as you watch and relate to the over-protective and caring panda bear mom as she prepares her only daughter for the beautiful world around her.
And then get ready to laugh when you meet two-year-old Tao Tao, a Golden Snub-nosed monkey who is full of feelings and adventures. Watch as he discovers what it's like to grow up and decide what is most important to him, as well as possibly discover a hero deep down inside.
And finally, meet Dawa a strong, proud and protective Mama snow leopard. Snow leopards are an elusive animal and are rarely caught on camera, but of course the film makers behind Disneynature's films managed to get enough footage to tell her incredible story. Oh just wait until you watch her story of courage and pride.
Disneynature's Born In China also features the majestic red-crowned cranes, which are an integral part of not only the film, but of China's folklore. The cranes are just beautiful and the film captures them in a way that I don't think they've ever been seen before.
