DisneyNature has been putting out some interesting documentaries over the last few years, and the latest one to be released is Wings Of Life. It features an amazing array of insects and mammals, all of whom have one thing in common: the gift of flight. From butterflies and hummingbirds to bees and bats, this gives you a close up look at the winged creatures we share the world with. It's narrated by Meryl Streep and uses closer than close film-making techniques that gives us an incredible picture. The magic of this filming truly shines when you're watching it on Blu-Ray, because the footage is AMAZING. My family and I really enjoy this close up look, especially on critters we've never seen in person. We learned a lot! Be aware that although this movie is rated G, it does have a tiny bit of nature related violence so be careful with the littles and sensitive kiddos.
The DVD/Blu-Ray contains a single special feature, which is a sneak peek at an upcoming DisneyNature film called Bears.
I love the combo packages that include both the Blu-Ray and DVD versions of the movies, because it's easy to watch them on whatever device we have at hand or on the go. If you're still on the fence about upgrading to a Blu-Ray player soon, these combo packs make the best value because you won't have to re-purchase the disc down the road.
This title is also part of the Disney Movie Rewards program, so be sure to enter the code inside the box to get your reward points. (We've snagged some nice freebies from this program, from other movies to printable activities) And if you'd like to do a few Earth Day craft activities in conjunction with viewing the movie at home, check out this link to learn how to make birds, flowers, butterflies and more!
DisneyNature's Wings Of Life is available now on Blu-Ray/DVD combo wherever media is sold. Widescreen format, it has a total running time of 80 minutes long. It is rated G (see above). The suggested retail price is $39.99, but Amazon has it available for $27.99 as of this posting.
I received a copy of this film in order to view it and share my thoughts on it. All opinions are my own.
