Dare To Compare Disney's Earth Movie And Planet Earth
Is The Earth Movie by Disney A Copy Of The Planet Earth Series?
Have you seen the Planet Earth series? Have you seen Disney's Earth movie? Did you love them? Would you say they were the same movies? How do you feel about Disney re-using Planet Earth footage in a movie made for the big screen? Are you feeling ripped-off, cheated or swindled or do you think it was worthwhile to see it on the big screen, that the film was so magnificent that the overlap was okay? Sound off on this page about how you are feeling about Disney's new Earth movie!
Earth was co-produced by BBC, Greenlight and Mark Linfield and is presented by DisneyNature.
"Earth isn't a cut-down of Planet Earth. We shot them side by side. We were going for rather rare and difficult behavior, and frankly if we hadn't have had the resources from the TV series to allow us to put in days into the field, we'd never have been able to get that rare behavior."
~~ Linfield, Co-director
"The message is, respect the fragile ecosystems of this vast world we merely share in." ~~ Boston.com
Earth, the first movie from DisneyNature, is a 90-minute documentary revamped from BBC and the Discovery Channel's Planet Earth series from two years ago.
"Earth was shot alongside Planet Earth, using many of the same crew, in part to cut costs. At least half of what is contained in the Disney film has already been released on the BBC, Discovery Channel and DVDs." ~~ Time on CNN

"Planet Earth holds the title of the most-expensive documentary ever made...I hope Earth makes a mint. It deserves to, if only to encourage more grand projects."
~~ Amy Nicholson
Do you think re-using so much movie footage in a second film is reasonable?
