PNG’s Birds of Paradise to Feature in Disney Production
Walt Disney Studios will celebrate Earth Day 2009 (April 22) with the debut of Earth, the first feature-length nature documentary from its new production banner, Disneynature. This new film is from award-winning British producer/director Alastair Fothergill, whose credits included the Emmy and Peadbody award-winning Planet Earth series (BBC and The Discovery Channel) and The Blue Planet.
Earth follows three animal families over the course of a year – the Polar Bear, the Whale, and the Elephant. In between this journey Earth manages to also cover a number of extraordinary animal displays – including the mating dance of PNG’s Superb Bird of Paradise.
I’ve included the official Earth trailer below – I’m looking forward to watching it.
