Celebrate Earth Day with DISNEYNATURE’S “WINGS OF LIFE” Blu-Ray



DISNEYNATURE’S BREATHTAKING FEATURE
“WINGS OF LIFE” LANDS ON BLU-RAY® COMBO PACK,
DIGITAL AND ON DEMAND APRIL 16, 2013,
IN TIME FOR EARTH DAY


I always love seeing all the Disney Nature movies. They are very detailed and full of fascinating facts. I enjoyed watching the last movie about Chimpanzees and knew that the newest movie would be great. I was impressed by the stunning colors and learning things I did not know. The close up slow motion photography made a world come alive that people do not normally see. My son yelled cool and awesome so many times! He likes butterflies since we have visited the Butterfly Garden at Six Flags. He enjoyed the movie and has started to look for butterflies at the park. I like the Disney Nature movies can spark the interest of children on a topic that can foster more learning. Wings of Life will be one we keep in the rotation of movies we like to watch over and over.

Info about Wings of Life:
Disneynature unveils “Wings of Life,” a spectacular, closer-than-close, high-definition look at the intricate world of butterflies, hummingbirds, bees and bats, and their life-sustaining collaboration with flowers. “Wings of Life” will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital and On Demand on April 16, 2013—just in time for Earth Day.


Director Schwartzberg says: “For me, the joy of doing this film is to be able to explore worlds that humans can’t easily experience—bats sipping nectar in the middle of the desert at night, orchid bees expertly manipulated by a bucket orchid, exotic hummingbirds flying like airborne dancers, and a clustering monarch colony with millions of butterflies. I hope to share the spectacle of nature and to spark in others the sense of wonder I have about the natural world.”

Employing multiple cameras, both time-lapse and high-speed cinematography and extraordinary patience (while nature took its time unfolding), filmmakers shot on location in more than a dozen areas, ranging from the El Rosario Preserve in Michoacán, Mexico, to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument Park in Arizona. “Wings of Life” features extraordinary imagery shot with digital cameras—one capable of frame rates of up to 1500 frames per second, and the use of a pinhole lens, which allowed the cameraman to get within millimeters of an insect subject while retaining a clear view of the background. The resulting imagery—intimate and breathtaking—is brought to life for audiences through spectacular high-definition picture and sound quality.

To celebrate the debut of “Wings of Life,” Disneynature has made a contribution to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund (DWCF) to protect pollinators worldwide. The DWCF has already supported more than 20 projects across North America focused on protecting pollinators and their habitats. Grants have helped conservationists save endangered butterflies, expand habitat for honeybees and educate children about the importance of pollinators and how they can help protect them.

The “Wings of Life” Blu-ray Combo Pack includes a sneak peek at Disneynature’s 2014 big-screen adventure “Bears.” In an epic story of breathtaking scale set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, the film, which is currently in production, follows two mother grizzly bears as they impart life lessons to their impressionable young cubs.
