Disneynature invites all animal and film lovers to embark on their “most ambitious movie yet” that captures the endless wonder and beauty of China’s wildlife and natural habitat. Disneynature’s Born In China is a groundbreaking journey inside the breathtaking, never-before-seen wildlife of the Qinghai plateau – home to the majestic snow leopard, fourteen to sixteen thousand feet high above sea level. The film will also transport viewers to the cinematic beauty of the high mountains of Sichuan, where the adorable panda and high-flying golden monkeys live. The film in itself is one cinematic masterpiece that shows the world through the eyes of these mammals, as it touches our hearts in a way only Disney can.
Disneynature, in its ongoing quest to bring the natural world to the big screen as never before, presents its most ambitious project to date, taking moviegoers on a grand journey into the wilds of China. “Born In China” follows the adventures of three animal families — the majestic panda, the savvy golden monkey and the elusive snow leopard.
Featuring stunning imagery, the film navigates the vast terrain—from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest—on the wings of a red-crowned crane, showcasing remarkably intimate family moments captured on film for the first time ever.
