Disneynature’s Born in China Movie Review
Since 2009, Disneynature has served as Disney’s window into the lives of animals in nature. Their purpose has been to create an understanding of nature in general and to draw comparisons between the animal families on screen and the human families in the audience. On April 21, 2017, Disneynature will be releasing their tenth feature documentary, Born in China.
Born in China focuses on three animal families native to China: Pandas, snow leopards, and golden monkeys. There is never a dull moment on screen, as the documentary takes us through the journeys of these three animal families as we see them growing up, parenting, and learning life lessons. Not only will this film have you on the edge of your seat in anticipation of what “wild” thing will happen next, but the scenery is breathtaking and majestic, and there is no shortage of cuteness in seeing the animals, especially the babies!
Rather than telling a traditional narrative of good versus evil, Born in China, using narrator John Krasinski (of The Office fame), tells a story about family relationships and lessons about the circle of life. This is a film that is equally entertaining for young children, teens, and adults, making it the perfect family film to see this spring. If you see Disneynature’s Born in China opening weekend, a donation will be made in your honor to World Wildlife Fund to help benefit pandas and snow leopards in the wild.
Born in China comes to theatres April 21st. You can learn more about the film by visiting their site here.
