Disney's Earth Movie

Disneynature works with some of the best documentary filmmakers in the world in an effort to bring nature into view for all of us. They also intend to help make people more aware of what they can do to help our planet Earth.

Disneynature's Earth was a joint BBC, Greenwich and Discovery Channel Production, which was was hotly anticipated and opened in theatres on Earth Day, April 22, 2009. Some loved Earth, others were disappointed.

As anticipated as Disneynature's Earth was, it was also highly controversial. On this page you will find a discussion of the film, the original trailers, links to many movie reviews and a lot more information pictures about the film which is available on DVD and blu-ray now. You will also find links to purchase it directly from Amazon. Amazon's price is usually pretty competitive plus they offer FREE shipping on orders worth $25 or more.

The Earth is the only planet that we know of that supports life. DisneyNature's Earth shares a year in the life of the creatures with whom we share the earth. Follow three animal families on one amazing journey.

Disneynature's Earth Trailer Number 1 - Disney's Earth Movie trailer, the original trailer that Disney released.

Disneynature's Earth Trailer Number 2 - Help Save The Earth And Have Fun Doing It ~~ Featuring the Song I'm On Top Of The World

In this video, the cast of Earth invites you to take one small step toward making the planet a better place.

If anyone knows who performs the song "I'm On Top Of The World," I (and many other people) would love to know!

Disneynature's Earth Trailer Number 3 - Earth The Next Generation video featuring the youth of today on our world tomorrow.

These are all amazing videos but I have to admit that this one, featuring statements by the children of today about how they can save the environment for future generations, gave me goosebumps. It is short and sweet.

Disney Planted A Tree For Every Ticket Sold

Disney offered to plant a tree for every ticket sold for this film in the first week of its release. The tree was to be planted in the North Atlantic Rainforest in Brazil which is 'highly threatened.' You could do the same as a gift for someone in your family. Take a family member to see a wonderful nature-oriented film like this and plant a tree in their name. Beautiful!

Planet Earth: The Complete BBC Series

A top quality nature movie ~~ available from Amazon by following this link. Planet Earth is considered by some to be the best nature documentary series out there. Some prefer it to Disney's Earth because it is a series and had the time to dig deeper into the stories.

As Disney said,

"Nature writes the screenplay."

Don't you think it is time we started watching?

Are you excited about Disney's Earth Movie? About Disneynature's upcoming productions?

      We love the Disneynature series and the Earth movie. I think kids are more open to it. They don't know how much is really involved in changing the way we live to support the planet. You shared a lot of resources on this extensive lens!

      Not a very good movie at all. Too intense to be rated G. I didn't like it, too many animal deaths!!! I know that's earth but I was hoping it was a happy, cheerful, uplifting movie..but I was wrong!Other than the animals dying I'll give it a 3 star for good production and information.

      I didn't see this movie and I don't plan to. I purchased the BBC's Earth Series on Blu-Ray last year, and it is spectacular. When I saw the previews for this movie, I recognized almost everything immediately, so I chose to skip it. That doesn't mean that this movie doesn't have value, but I'd rather see the full thing. :-)

      This is a terrible and loosely tied together amalgam of Planet Earth and other nature shows. It is shallow and empty, and once again Disney has proved themselves to be an evil company who just wants money. Watching the actual series Planet Earth is much more entertaining, educational, and much less confusing. I can't believe that this actually made money. False advertising.

      Disney's Earth was a way for me to see how hard life really is for the animal kingdom. I have no reason to complain about my daily commute to work after watching this cinematically awe-inspiring documentary. How would you like to travel without food and water for days like those herds of elephants? How would you like to swim over 4,000 miles one way to migrate to a better climate? How would you like to swim in ice-melted water and not find any land for days on end like the male polar bear?This film taught me fortitude and not giving up for the sake of the younger generation. The mothers featured in the film were all so very encouraging and tender toward their young, especially when they realize that this is the first time they have to make this annual journey back and forth for miles and miles on end.This film is really a tribute to all mothers, especially Mother Earth. How can we help her in her time of need is the biggest question that is left with each viewer.

      why cant they save the animals in the film ? they talk about showing the harsh reality, but if you helped change, then maybe it wont need to be so harsh ?

      I cannot wait to see this movie on Thurday with my friends. One of them will not go because she thinks it is sad. She thinks the animals will get killed and die and she can't take that. Please tell us that is not in this version. As I see the promos, it is all about the glory and beauty of God or Nature (whatever you chose to call it) and stir our hearts to take care of what is ours. I want everyone--especially the children--to see this movie if I have interpreted the promos correctly. Please, someone write and let us "more sensitive" viewers know what to expect.To Nature and all of its gifts to man!

      Love that video of the little duck. I didn't know ducks built their nests in trees. Cool about Disney planting a tree for every ticket.

      It's so sad that I haven't even heard of this movie, and with my love of nature, earth preservation and Disney you would have thought.... This is a very nice lens, 5***** well deserved. I hope to see this soon, it does look great.

      I definitely look forward to seeing this movie. It promises to be as great as the BBC's Planet Earth.

      I really enjoyed Earth as a kind of successor to Disney's classic True Life Adventures series! I thought the circle of life aspect was handled very well. You can read my review here:

      I did get to see the movie and I think it was incredible. I would caution those with very young children to perhaps wait until the rental comes out or skip it entirely. My three year old kept telling me that she did not "like this channel". Even my 9 year old had her hands over her eyes for much of the movie and my 12 year old (who is very much a realist) told me that the movie made her sad.Any nature movie will have some element of the cycle of life including death, but this movie had more than its fair share. I feel that a lot of prep for kids going to see this movie would be a good idea. You must know your children individually and decide if they are able to handle many scenes of sadness. An open discussion with them will go a long way in preparing them for this experience.You can read my entire review at

      Brenda - thanks for your comment on my review of Earth. In a nutshell, I thought it was good but that Planet Earth was much better because it's longer and was able to focus on many other interesting natural wonders. You can see the whole review here:
