Disney's Earth

On Sunday, hubby and I took the boys to see the new Disney movie, Earth. It's been over a year since we were to a movie and this one was spectacular. The images of Earth from space were magnificient. The time lapse shots of the changing of the seasons were spectacular. Scenes of waterfalls, oceans and an assortment of different species left us marveling at the wonders of Earth's beauty.

There was lots to be learned from this movie for both adults and children. It followed the lives of a polar bear family, a whale and her offspring and a herd of elephants. Each scene of the movie stole our breath away and left us with knowledge not previously known.

When the movie ended and we headed to the van, the boys talked about what they had learned. Both of them love animals and nature, so this was a great movie to take in. They asked me what I had learned and I told them that I never knew that Antartica was home to the southern lights. I have seen the wonder of the Aurora Borealis, but didn't realize that the same phenomena took place at the South Pole. They are called the aurora australis or the southern polar lights and are only visible from high southern latitudes.

I saw a small segment about the elephants on tv, but enjoyed the entire show. It is an educational show for the entire family and one that can truly be enjoyed. I highly recommend it to everyone. Even the small children at the theater were spellbound by what they were seeing. If you have seen it or decide to, please let me know your opinion. ~Blessings, Mary~


  1. wow that sounds like an awesome movie Mary, I hope it comes out here so I can take my two younger ones to it.

  2. I've watched the multi-awarded PLANET EARTH series of these [similar to the movie] on PBS. And they ARE spectacular. The photography and the story lines are supreme. If you get a chance, check out your Canadian programming for this on your educational channel. It was years in the making and it's far beyond extraordinary.

  3. We have not been to many movies in the past few years... Our movie house here in town is TERRIBLE so we have to travel an hour or so to see a movie...... thus we do not go unless it is sooooo special.. The last one was the passion..... soo that tells you how long it has been...

    I will watch for this to come out on DVD and we will rent it.... I so love nature movies..... There are not enough of them around...

    What a wonderful thing for those boys to see....... beat the other garbage that is out there today.

    Good for you grandma!

  4. It does sound like an excellent film and one that I would really be interested in seeing. Goes to show that for a movie to be entertaining it doesn't have to have violence, swearing and sex in it!! I remember as a child watching "The Wonderful World Of Disney" every Sunday and how much I loved it when it was an animal or nature movie:-) xoxo

  6. Glad you enjoyed it and the boys had fun while learning things...

  7. Sounds great!
    I love watching the wonder of God's creation....there is so much of it that we will never see. But then again we will get to see the perfected version of it when we step into eternity!
    Glad ya'll had a good time with the boys.
    Praying for you girl!

  8. A friend saw it and highly recommended it too. It would be a good one to see at an IMAX theatre!

  9. Checking in on you..... wondered what happened? Let me know all if fine in Canada.....

  10. Hi Mary,
    This sounds just wonderful and a perfect family movie. I think it must be like the Planet Earth dvd set we have which has such amazing photography.
    We'll make a point to see this one with the boys!

  11. I definately want to see that movie. Thanks for the wonderful review. Glad you all had such a good time seeing it!

  12. It does sound like a very good movie. We haven't been to the movies in ages. Like some other people, it's usually out on DVD before we see it. I love the discover and history channel on TV.

  13. This sounds familiar. Could I have seen it already?
    Its been non stop men through my house today. The 4 glass companies I called for estimates. Some made appointments but the majority just showed up. So glad I decided to take my shower later. Now I have to expect the appraisor, don't know when and the Heating and AC man tomorrow, again no appointment. I have been able to change the sheets and pack a few boxes so the day hasn't been a bust altoghter. We have a counter on the repair list so maybe we won't have to do everything. Still have an inspection by the FHA people to have done. We'll both be so-o happy when this house is history in our lives.

  14. The movie sounds great!

    I loved your memories about spring on the farm-makes me happy!!

  15. I have been wanting to see this!! SO glad I got someone's real opinion that has seen it.

    After I get going with this job and all and if it's still playing, I want to take Emmy..

    She loves animals and tv...put them on a huge screen and I'm sure she will be in love.

    Love, Jess

  16. Hey ! Are you ok...... Just wondering if you are ok and how is Michelle? Love the phone visit sooooooo very much and it just made my day..... Love ya lots and one of these days I am coming to Canada.....

  17. Sounds like a great movie! Nothing like the natural beauty of our Earth, is there? I would love to see it...I love movies with animals in them. At least it was a child-friendly movie! I prefer those kind to the violence, sex, and cussing movies! Glad the boys learned from it! You are such a wonderful grandma!!!

    I received the book and the stamp money last Monday. Been meaning to jet you off an email and never got to it this past week. Haven't had time yet to start the book as I had a busy week of work...met my deadline during the night with that! Anxious to start reading it...hopefully, Sunday! Thank you so much, Mary!

    Have a great weekend!
