Disney Revisits the Nature Genre

After Walt had established his studio and had already created several animated features, he decided to create some live-action nature videos. His studio continued production on Cinderella, Peter Pan, and Alice in Wonderland while, in the meantime, it began production of these nature films. It was the late 1940s and the wilderness movies included True-Life Adventures and, in 1948, On Seal Island.

Well, the Disney company has decided to revisit the nature genre with Disneynature. As defined by Disneynature.com, the new division of the studio is a "new label dedicated to working with leading filmmakers to produce one cutting-edge theatrical release each year celebrating the wonders of the world in which we live in."

The website (Disneynature.com) has some stunning videos and pictures that make me pretty excited for the upcoming Disneynature movie called earth (you can also find the trailer on the website). It will bring the moviegoers on a "truly global journey" told through the stories of three different mothers struggling to raise their children. The mothers and children are Arctic Polar Bears, Humpback Whales and Elephants. The movie will be released on April 22, 2009, but I am not sure where or how it will be released.
