Born In China’ Review: Disneynature Animal Documentary Is A Sweeping & Majestic Treat For Any Age

21 April 2017

Disneynature revived the true-life documentary tradition of Walt Disney in 2009 and faithfully has delivered a new, and increasingly wondrous, adventure around every Earth Day — from Earth, Oceans, African Cats and Chimpanzee to Bears, Monkey Kingdom and now Born in China. Some of the proceeds from the first week’s box office for these films goes right back into the cause, a nice and rare gesture from a major studiom where it all seems to be about money these days. In the case of Born in China the World Wildlife Fund will be the beneficiary.
