See Disneynature’s Penguins Opening Weekend and Help Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN)

Disneynature "Penguins"
Disneynature’s all-new feature film “Penguins” is a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he’s targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after. From the filmmaking team behind “Bears” and “Chimpanzee,” Disneynature’s “Penguins” opens in theaters nationwide in time for Earth Day 2019.

If you head to the movies this weekend and choose to see Disneynature’s PENGUINS then you can help make donations to the Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) to help protect penguins across the southern hemisphere. The movie looks adorable and having it narrated by Ed Helms makes it even better. I’ve been lucky enough to view a bunch of Disneynature movies back when I was visiting Disney on press trips and they have always been beautifully shot and interesting to see. This one should be excellent as well. Take a look at this 60 second preview.

Born in China Review and Blu-ray Giveaway

Born in China - Panda

We received a copy of the Disneynature Blu-ray Born in China to watch and review as well as give away. Opinions are 100% our own.

I have enjoyed the Disneynature movies. I’ve seen most of them and they are fun and educational. Yes, they are narrated to give the animals human emotions and this isn’t super hard-core science information. It is edutainment and at least a starting point for a larger discussion.

the movie follows a number of different animals in remote locations. I love the beauty of the Snow Leopard and so the story of a mother snow leopard and her two cubs was compelling, especially in how difficult things turned out for her and those cubs.

There was also a story about a snub-nose monkey, he was adorable and while it wasn’t as compelling a story as Monkey Kingdom, it was entertaining and the monkeys were very cute. I am concerned how my kids will react when one is snatched up by their natural predator, the goshawk.

The landscape is beautiful and the bonus features on the blu-ray give more insight into how the film was made and what challenges the filmmakers had to contend with. It is another lovely movie by Disneynature that should stimulate interest in China and its animal residents.

And yes, there is a story about pandas, too.

I have a copy of the movie to give away. You may enter through the rafflecopter app below.
