My family was able to attend a preview of the film at DisneySMMC this year and while I wasn’t too excited at first to see it, and neither was my family, we all left inspired and feeling a new respect towards these animals and filmmakers.
Born in China follows 4 different animal families, the Giant Panda, Golden Snub-Nosed Monkey, the Snow Leopard and Red-Crowned Cranes. You watch the different dynamics of how they embrace their youth, protect or dis guard them, and get a small glimpse into their world of parenting with beautiful cinematography and
I was moved as both a mother and observer to how little I know of these animals and how similar we all are. My kids still talk about how they loved the baby panda and laugh about a special moment with a leaf. I’m actually really appreciative of this movie for teaching and reminding how endangered some of these animals and to step back and view another part of the world.
I think that this is a nice break from typical family movies and great ice-breaker to talk about how we can do more for the environment and endangered animals. Just by attending this movie in the 1st week Disney will make a donation for each ticket purchased to the World Wildlife Federation.
DisneyNature continues to educate, support animals and the environment and I can’t wait to see what else they will do. Will you be checking out Born in China opening week?
