I absolutely love DisneyNature movies. I can take the whole family, and it is always enjoyable to watch no matter which animal we are observing frolic and play, and it is educational! DisneyNature’s Born In China looks to be another fantastic film in the lineup!

This year, 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, you are transported to some of the most extreme environments on Earth to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film.

About Born In China

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 premiere nature filmmakers Brian Leith and Phil Chapman, and Chuan.
