Watch Earth and plant a tree

Guest Author - Lorna London Sloukji

Earth, the first film in the Disneynature series, tells the remarkable story of three animal families and their amazing journeys across the planet earth. Narrated by James Earl Jones, Earth captures the most beautiful and private moments of the planet's wildest creatures. The film shows intense action and breathtaking locations while following the three animal families.

"The film gives moviegoers an entertaining and unprecedented view of our planet, with some of the most astonishing imagery and exciting natural drama ever presented on the big screen," said Dick Cook, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios in a recent news release.

Filmed over five years, Earth follows polar bears in the Arctic, elephants in the Kalahari, and a humpback whale, through the journeys and experiences of four seasons.

The narration discusses changes and adaptations of nature and wildlife, with reference to weather patterns.

Entertainment Weekly reviews, "Earth, a showpiece from the BBC team that made Planet Earth, is spectacularly photographed, gracefully edited, and effectively matter-of-fact in demonstrating the effects of climate change. James Earl Jones narrates with the authority of Adam naming the animals."

Directors Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield undoubtedly had quite the enormous project on their hands for years, striving to reveal nature's most intimate moments, and hoping to achieve a deep connection between viewers and the animal families.

"I've worked on some pretty massive projects in my time but they're completely dwarfed by the scale of Earth," says Fothergill. "Every shoot presented massive logistical challenges. Gaining access to the locations took years of negotiations. But because of our experience, logistical knowledge, and reputation, we were able to get in and bring back such wonderful images-it's something that you simply couldn't buy."

Directors Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield, were the incredible creative team behind the Emmy Award winning Planet Earth, who have worked together again to bring us Earth, opening on Earth Day, April 22, 2009.

What's more, is that viewers have the opportunity to give back to the world as a tree gets planted for every movie ticket purchased during its opening week. Disney's goal is to ensure that it plants trees in needed areas including the Brazilian Atlantic Forest - considered to be the most endangered rainforest in the world.
