What To Watch For Earth Day 2022

Disney is celebrating Earth Day with an exciting Earth Month Collection on Disney +. Are you ready to go on a journey around the world exploring the diversity and resilience of our planet? You are in for the adventure of a life time this Earth Day.

Disney+ will take viewers on a journey around the world – from the rainforests of Guyana to the farms of California to the icy tundras of the Arctic – to celebrate the diversity and resilience of our planet and the species that inhabit it. Filmed in some of the world’s most fascinating, biodiverse, and mysterious environments, these dynamic movies and specials give viewers a revealing look at Earth’s splendors, its ecosystems, and inhabitants that face insurmountable environmental changes and threats.

 Polar Bear- From Disneynature:

Disneynature’s all-new feature film Polar Bear premieres exclusively on Disney+ beginning April 22. Narrated by two-time Academy Award®–nominee Catherine Keener, Polar Bear tells the story of a new mother whose memories of her own youth prepare her to navigate motherhood in the increasingly challenging world that polar bears face today. Directed by Alastair Fothergill and Jeff Wilson, the team behind Disneynature’s Penguins

But that’s not all: In honor of the film’s majestic and extraordinarily resilient stars, Disneynature and the Disney Conservation Fund will continue their longstanding commitment to caring for wildlife and their habitats by supporting Polar Bears International (PBI) in their efforts to help protect polar bears as well as their Arctic home.

Explorer: The Last Tepui:

The Earth Day special “Explorer: The Last Tepui,” from National Geographic, follows elite climber Alex Honnold (“Free Solo”) and a world-class climbing team led by National Geographic Explorer and climber Mark Synnott on a grueling mission deep in the Amazon jungle. The team attempts a first-ascent climb up a 1000 foot sheer cliff. Their goal is to deliver legendary biologist and National Geographic Explorer Bruce Means to the top of a massive “island in the sky” known as a tepui. The team must first trek miles of treacherous jungle terrain to help Dr. Means complete his life’s work, searching the cliff wall for undiscovered animal species. The one-hour special is the newest installment of National Geographic’s long-running “Explorer” series. 

The Biggest Little Farm: The Return:

 “The Biggest Little Farm: The Return,” from National Geographic, is based on a 2018 award-winning feature documentary. It tells the story of John and Molly Chester, who abandon their urban life in Los Angeles to live on a barren farm to grow delicious food in harmony with nature in Ventura County. The new special follows the farmers’ 10-year journey as they transform the land into a magical working farm. Apricot Lane Farms is a beautiful, complex world that reflects our planet’s biodiversity. This special introduces audiences to animals that will quickly burrow into their hearts, like Emma the pig and an adorable lamb named Moe. This Earth Day, see how the farmers utilize the interconnectedness of nature to help build soil health, maximize biodiversity, and regeneratively grow the most nutrient-dense food possible.

Shark Beach with Chris Hemsworth:

In this 2021 documentary, Chris Hemsworth joins shark expert Valerie Taylor to explore the science of sharks and how they behave. In a response to an increase in shark attacks on the Australian Coast, Hemsworth and Taylor work to discover safe ways for humans and sharks to coexist. 

Magic Of Disney's Animal Kingdom:

Of course Disney’s Animal Kingdom has to be represented on Earth Day! Narrated by Josh Gad, this National Geographic series dives deeper to show how the magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom is made. Through the 8 episodes the operation and imagineering of Animal Kingdomis celebrated by exploring some of Disney World’s wildest residents.

Polar Bear, along with Explorer: The Last Tepui and The Biggest Little Farm: The Return from National Geographic, debut on Earth Day and take Disney+ viewers on a journey around the world—from the rainforests of Guyana to the farms of California to the icy tundras of the Arctic—to witness and celebrate the diversity and resilience of our planet and the species that inhabit it.
