I love all of the adorable Disneynature films including Born in China. Cute baby animals are about the most adorable thing ever. I’ve always been fascinated by pandas because they are so exotic. And, I love that Disneynature through the Disney Conservation Fund has made a contribution to World Wildlife Fund to benefit wild pandas and snow leopards. I received product for this post.

Disneynature Born in China
Narrated by John Krasinski (“13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” NBC’s “The Office,” “Amazon’s “Jack Ryan”), Disneynature’s newest true-life adventure film “Born in China,” journeys into homes on Digital, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack (Blu-ray+DVD+Digital) and On-Demand on August 29. And in continued efforts to help protect the wild animals featured in the film, Disneynature through the Conservation Fund has made a contribution to World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to focus efforts that benefit wild pandas and snow leopards.
“Born In China” transports audiences to some of the world’s most extreme environments of China where few people have ever ventured to witness wildly intimate and adorable moments in the lives of three animal families – a doting panda bear mother, a 2-year-old golden snub-nosed monkey, and a mother snow leopard. It is the seventh theatrical release from Disneynature, which brings the world’s top nature filmmakers together to share wildlife stories that engage, inspire and educate. The breathtaking footage and high-definition quality picture is captivating for audiences of all ages and is a must-add to the in-home collection.
Furthermore, the in-home release comes packaged with all-new bonus features that take viewers deeper into the making of a true-life adventure film, showcasing the extreme measures it took to travel, film, observe and encounter these amazing animals in their natural habitats in the far northeast China; Showcases how Disneynature and the Disney Conservation efforts behind these films have helped make a difference around the globe; and features the full music video by “American Authors” end-credit song “Everything Everything.”
The film is directed by accomplished Chinese filmmaker Lu Chuan and produced by Disney’s Roy Conli and renowned nature filmmakers Brian Leith and Phil Chapman. The film features an orchestral score composed by Emmy®-winner Barnaby Taylor that incorporates authentic Chinese flavors.

*Bonus features may vary by retailer
As with all of the Disneynature films, the photography in Born in China is absolutely amazing. You really can see every detail and you feel like you’re right there in the jungle with the animals. It’s absolutely fascinating to see the animals in their real habitat instead of in a zoo or a preserve. The bonus features really make this movie a must see. It was fascinating to watch the crew getting all of these amazing shots and footage and what they had to go through to do it. If you can, I really recommend the Blu-ray option so you get all of the bonus features. It’s definitely worth it to see. Download the activity packet for the kids.
