I attended an advanced screening of this movie. All opinions are my own.
“Narrated by John Krasinski (“13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” NBC’s “The Office,” “Amazon’s “Jack Ryan”), Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure film “Born In China” takes an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured. Following the stories of three animal families, the film transports audiences to some of the most extreme environments on Earth to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film. A doting panda bear mother guides her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence. A two-year-old golden monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts. And a mother snow leopard—an elusive animal rarely caught on camera—faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet.
Featuring stunning, never-before-seen imagery, the film navigates China’s vast terrain—from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest—on the wings of red-crowned cranes, seamlessly tying the extraordinary tales together. Opening in U.S. theaters on Earth Day 2017, “Born in China” is directed by accomplished Chinese filmmaker Lu Chuan, and produced by Disney’s Roy Conli and renowned nature filmmakers Brian Leith and Phil Chapman.”-Disney
I have enjoyed several of the other Disneynature films. I have been excited to see the latest entry in the series, BORN IN CHINA. My sister and I both really enjoyed the film.
This movie was a gorgeous film to watch. The scenery that they show in China is so beautiful. It was fun to see the more remote regions of China on film.
I loved that there were so many baby animals in this film. There were a lot of reactions to the cuteness overload in the screening that I attended.
My favorite stories that were featured were the stories of the pandas YaYa and MeiMei. It was so fun to be a part of a panda’s first year of life. I also really liked the story about the golden snub-nosed monkey named TaoTao. I thought that the monkeys were hilarious and very entertaining to watch on screen.
I thought that the film was narrated very well by John Krasinski. I felt that he put some of his personality into the narration.
This movie is rated G for general audiences. There is some animal violence and animal births shown.
I thought that this movie was so beautiful and fun to watch. It would be a great film for the family to see together.
Make sure to see BORN IN CHINA during its opening week (April 21-27, 2017) to benefit the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Based on opening-week attendance, Disneynature, via the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, will make a contribution to the WWF to help protect wild pandas and snow leopards in China.
