Wings of Life Disneynature available on DVD, and Blu-ray 4/16/13

Are you a nature lover? Are you looking for an amazing breathtaking movie that you will remember for years to come? Well  Celebrate Wings of Life from Disneynature flims is just what you are looking for.


BURBANK, Calif. (March 8, 2013) — Spring is in the air—literally—as Disneynature prepares to unveil “Wings of Life,” a spectacular, closer-than-close, high-definition look at the intricate world of butterflies, hummingbirds, bees and bats, and their life-sustaining collaboration with flowers. Directed by Louie Schwartzberg (“America’s Heart & Soul”) and narrated by Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep, “Wings of Life” will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital and On Demand on April 16, 2013—just in time for Earth Day.

“In the chaos and craziness of our day-to-day lives, few of us stop to consider what’s happening behind the scenes in nature that makes our lives possible,” said Streep. “This film is a stunning adventure that literally takes flight alongside all kinds of winged creatures—butterflies, bees and bats—each working hard to pollinate our planet.”

Said Schwartzberg, “For me, the joy of doing this film is to be able to explore worlds that humans can’t easily experience—bats sipping nectar in the middle of the desert at night, orchid bees expertly manipulated by a bucket orchid, exotic hummingbirds flying like airborne dancers, and a clustering monarch colony with millions of butterflies. I hope to share the spectacle of nature and to spark in others the sense of wonder I have about the natural world.”

Employing multiple cameras, both time-lapse and high-speed cinematography and extraordinary patience (while nature took its time unfolding), filmmakers shot on location in more than a dozen areas, ranging from the El Rosario Preserve in Michoacán, Mexico, to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument Park in Arizona. “Wings of Life” features extraordinary imagery shot with digital cameras—one capable of frame rates of up to 1500 frames per second, and the use of a pinhole lens, which allowed the

cameraman to get within millimeters of an insect subject while retaining a clear view of the background. The resulting imagery—intimate and breathtaking—is brought to life for audiences through spectacular high-definition picture and sound quality.
To celebrate the debut of “Wings of Life,” Disneynature has made a contribution to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund (DWCF) to protect pollinators worldwide. The DWCF has already supported more than 20 projects across North America focused on protecting pollinators and their habitats. Grants have helped conservationists save endangered butterflies, expand habitat for honeybees and educate children about the importance of pollinators and how they can help protect them.
The “Wings of Life” Blu-ray Combo Pack includes a sneak peek at Disneynature’s 2014 big-screen adventure “Bears.” In an epic story of breathtaking scale set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, the film, which is currently in production, follows two mother grizzly bears as they impart life lessons to their impressionable young cubs.

Our Take:

Butterflies, don’t you just love these beautiful creatures?  I have always been fascinated with butterflies. They are amazingly beautiful and lovely to look at. I was very fortunate to be able to check out the most recent DisneyNature dvd Wings of Life Disneynature available on DVD, and Blu-ray 4/16/13. I love butterflies, I have ever since I was a child, and it seems like my daughter has taken after me with her love of butterflies.

My daughter and I were able to check out some butterflies up close and personal in Epcot last year. During the Flower and Garden festival they have a section of the park that has a great butterfly garden, where you can see the butterflies. And the butterflies are everywhere, a great way to see all different types of butterflies in person. I was able to get some great pictures too. But if you cannot get to a butterfly exhibit, the next best thing to seeing really live butterflies is the Wings of Life Disneynature dvd.
 This dvd is breathtaking and wonderfully shot, the colors are so bold and amazing. It is almost as if the butterflies are in my living room. I could watch this dvd over and over again, along with bring beautiful I found this dvd very relaxing. A great dvd to enjoy with the family, to just to relax after a long day at work.

If you are looking for a great gift for mom this Mother’s Day, make sure to pick up a copy of Wings of Life Disneynature. Mom or that special lady in your life will love this amazing dvd. So make sure to pick up a copy today.
