The first film in the Disneynature series, “Earth,” narrated by James Earl Jones, tells the remarkable story of three animal families and their amazing journeys across the planet we all call home. “Earth” combines rare action, unimaginable scale and impossible locations by capturing the most intimate moments of our planet’s wildest and most elusive creatures. Directors Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield, the acclaimed creative team behind the Emmy Award-winning “Planet Earth,” combine forces again to bring this epic adventure to the big screen, beginning Earth Day, April 22, 2009.
“Earth” is the first film from Disneynature, the first new Disney-branded label in 60 years. It is headed by Jean-Francois Camilleri, executive vice president and general manager of the company. With plans to release one feature-length nature film a year, Disneynature was formed in the proud tradition established by Walt Disney with the classic True-Life Adventures series form 1948 to 1960, which won eight Academy Awards.

"Leave it to Disney to make global warming as soothing as a full-body massage," writes Jeannette Catsoulis in the New York Times. "In the grandiosely titled 'Earth,' plundered largely from the BBC Natural History Unit's magnificent 'Planet Earth,' the filmmakers Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield take the temperature of our planet and conclude that it is rising.... You may leave the theater feeling as fuzzy - and ultimately as powerless - as those doomed polar bears."
