We were given a sneak peek of the newest Disenynature film Born in China when I attended the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration back in February. I’ll be honest, when I first heard what we were previewing I was a bit disappointed. While I knew the movie would be great, I was really hoping for a sneak peek at Beauty and the Beast. That would’ve been awesome, but Born in China was phenomenal. I had no idea how much I would enjoy it. This is my no spoiler Born in China review!
So without giving away any spoilers, here are six reasons everyone should see Disney Nature’s Born in China, even better if you see it the week it opens so that Disney Nature will donate a portion of the proceeds from tickets to the World Wildlife Fund (more about that below)!
Reasons to See Disneynature’s Born in China
#1 – Cute Animals
Born in China follows the stories of three animal families – giant pandas, snow leopards, and golden monkeys – in extreme environments in China. We were actually given the chance to talk to the producer of Born in China and the things that you see in the movie are real stories that occurred in nature, not manipulated or coerced in any way. They had small teams of people camping out in these extreme areas following various animals and the three stories that stood out where the panda, leopard, and monkeys.
When you see the movie, you’ll understand why these animals became the stars. I mean just look at this clip of Giant Pandas Ya Ya and Mei Mei. So cute!
#2 – John Kransinki is the Narrator
If I had to pick one celebrity to meet in my life, pretty sure John Krasinski would be at the top of that list. He just has this friendly and carefree vibe about him that makes me think we’d be best friends in real life. Or something like that.
Anyway, he’s the narrator of the film and does a fantastic job with tone, inflection, and a bit of comedic relief when necessary. He’s serious when he needs to be serious and lighthearted when the movie calls for it. This new fun fact video released for National Panda Day today tells you everything you need to know about him as a narrator. He’s great.
#3 – It’s Real Life
#4 – Kids will love it
#5 – It gives us better insight into animals
#6 – Going to see the movie can help other animals
