After achieving great success with Earth, its first theatrical release, Disneynature released the G-rated Oceans on Earth Day (Thursday)—a film Associated Press movie critic Christy Lemire has called “a stunningly beautiful documentary.”

French codirectors Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud profile the bodies of water that cover almost 75% of our planet, while sending a message about the environmental threats they face. 

Narrated by actor Pierce Brosnan, the film features never-before-seen imagery captured by the latest underwater technologies. 

Walt Disney Co. President and CEO Robert Iger says he hopes Disneynature films “will contribute to a greater understanding and appreciation of the beauty and fragility of our natural world.” 

Disney held a “blue carpet” premiere last Saturday at Hollywood’s famed El Capitan Theatre. Brosnan was joined by Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas, who sang the film’s end-credit song, Make a Wave. Purchase the song on iTunes, and all proceeds will benefit environmental charities. 

See Oceans by Wednesday, and Disneynature will make a contribution to The Nature Conservancy for every ticket sold. The money raised will be used to help save coral reefs.
