We were blessed to go the movies this last Tuesday, on Earth Day, to see Earth, by DisneyNature. One of the very first things we learned from viewing the movie that there will be a sequel Ocean that will be released on Earth Day 2010. We also learned that DisneyNature in a way developed out of True Life Adventures and Walt's love of nature.
We were highly interested in seeing the movie: Earth, because of the preview:
Some of the preview scenes looked a LOT LIKE the video clips from the DVD: Planet Earth Game that we had bought and have been playing with recently. During the movie and after the movie the kids kept saying mom that looks like the game, or that's in the game. They wanted to know if the movie was based on the game. (seeing the game came first). However, I explained to them that it was the other way around.
We were at the movie theaters for nearly 2 hours, and even though the movie was GREAT, it's NOT something that I would pay full movie price for again. It was one of those things I wished I could just reclined, pull up my pillow, and watch from the comforts from home.
After all, at home, we could pause the movie, answer questions, and hear comments the kids had to share. Normally both have good movie manors, but watching Earth was a little different. They weren't bad, but they weren't good either, they just were a little bit more chatty then normal.
It shouldn't have been a surprise that the movie talked about Global Warming, and the damage that it's causing to Polar Bears. In the back of my mind I kept thinking about Grolar Bears.
So my final opinion is that I'm glad that I went, but come next year we will be staying home and wait for the movie: OCEAN to be released onto DVD!
