Earth Day 2009, Disneynature released their stunning film about life on Earth and this year not to be outdone, they’re bringing oceans to the nature lovin’ kiddos of the planet. OCEANS launching on April 22, 2010 combines the latest underwater technologies and narration by earth-advocate Pierce Brosnan to offer families all over the world a peek into the depths. OCEANS will allow a glimpse of never before seen deep sea footage, along with a hearty dose of the harsh reality of life in the ocean and the amazing creatures that live there. The footage from this film looks amazing – as you can clearly see in the gallery below.
Last year, Disneynature planted trees if you saw Earth opening week and their conservation efforts this Earth Day also reach out to conservation efforts. If you and your family see OCEANS during opening week (April 22-28, 2010) the Disneynature “See OCEANS, Save Oceans” initiative will make a contribution to The Nature Conservancy in order to help save coral reefs.
And there’s more! In order to prepare kids for the OCEANS experience and supplement what they’ll learn in the film, Disneynature is offering some excellent activity based educational guides for parents, kids and teachers. These totally FREE guides will support parents and teachers as they support kids natural curiosity about the world’s oceans. The 8 page educational guide for parents and kids and the 42 page educator’s guide are both available for FREE at the Disneynature’s OCEANS website.
