    Remember, March of the Penguins??? Became one of the biggest family films of that year making more than $127 million worldwide. Kids love stuff like this.

    If it's not for the family I guess it's only for old people then.

    Planet Earth sold really well to families. A lot of my friends who have small children show it to their kids and watch it during their "family time." I don't see how Earth will be any different.

    Yeah. I remember having to wake people when the movie was over so I could clean.

    Disney has a successful record throughout it's history in producing popular films that feature live animals and natural settings ..everything from documentaries to stories with plots. Here is a partial list -

    Sacred Planet
    Homeward Bound
    Snow Dogs
    Follow Me, Boys!
    Grand Canyon
    Old Yeller
    Men Against the Arctic

    Of course, wildlife shorts were an integral part of what made Walt's television shows successful.

    Nope. It was a mid-afternoon show.

    Funny, when we saw it in the theatre, mid-afternoon, the theatre was absolutely PACKED, and everybody loved it.

    I went mid-afternoon as well. Not only was the teater FULL ..the crowd APPLAUDED at the end.

    The clean-up crew didn't have much to pick up as the theater goers were considerate and deposited their trash in the recepticles. Guess they must CARE ABOUT OUR PLANET.

    What the hell's wrong with my part of the world then? These kind of films are an excuse to take a nap in public where I live.

    I saw the movie this past Tuesday at an early screening and I had the pleasure to sit in on a Q & A with the actual directors of the film, Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield. They mentioned that it took 5 years to film this movie in 42 different countries. How insane is that? You definitely get this awesome experience in 90 minutes to explore and see so much of the world.

    I actually commend Disney and the directors on how kid-friendly this film actually was. A little girl in front of me had her eyes peeled on the screen the entire time during the screening. She would cheer and laugh and you just saw her enjoyment throughout the film. James Earl Jones was a great narrator. I pleasantly surprised with some unexpected moments where he was sarcastic and funny and made jokes that left the entire audience literally laughing out loud. He would comment on some of the natural movements and daily habits of the animals you see on the screen.
