I have seen Born in China quite a few times now while covering Disney press junkets. It’s a beautiful film that gives you the gift of visiting places that very few get to experience. Getting an up close look at panda bears, golden snub-nosed monkeys, and snow leopards is a rare treat. And now, with the release of the film you have to check out the Born in China Bonus Features.
Born in China
Disney’s Born In China, narrated by John Krasinski, transports audiences to some of the world’s most extreme environments of China where few people have ever ventured to witness wildly intimate and adorable moments in the lives of three animal families – a doting panda bear mother, a 2-year-old golden snub-nosed monkey, and a mother snow leopard. It is the seventh theatrical release from Disneynature, which brings the world’s top nature filmmakers together to share wildlife stories that engage, inspire and educate. The breathtaking footage and high-definition quality picture is captivating for audiences of all ages and is a must-add to the in-home collection. Disneynature’s newest true-life adventure film “Born in China” journeys into homes on Digital and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack TODAY, Aug. 29.
