You know I have a huge love for Disneynature and the beauty of their films. These are amazing features of our planet and the animals among it. Be sure to check out this remarkable behind the scenes look at the making of Disneynature’s Born in China. It captures the rarest animal to film in the wild – The Snow Leopard. It is absolutely breathtaking and extraordinary to see these gorgeous animals.
To bring Disneynature’s Born in China to life, filmmakers endure extreme environments to witness stories of some of our planet’s most remarkable animals. Go behind the scenes on one of the team’s most ambitious projects yet – to find and film the elusive snow leopard in China, on the highest plateau on Earth. The air is thin, the weather brutal, the terrain tricky, and the subjects nearly impossible to locate – and even tougher to capture on film. Ghost of the Mountains documents the crew’s historic and groundbreaking journey.

ABOUT “BORN IN CHINA”:
Narrated by John Krasinski (“13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” NBC’s “The Office,” “Amazon’s “Jack Ryan”), Disneynature’s newest true-life adventure film “Born in China,” journeys into homes on Digital, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack (Blu-ray+DVD+Digital) and On-Demand on August 29.
“Born In China” transports audiences to some of the world’s most extreme environments of China where few people have ever ventured to witness wildly intimate and adorable moments in the lives of three animal families – a doting panda bear mother, a 2-year-old golden snub-nosed monkey, and a mother snow leopard. It is the seventh theatrical release from Disneynature, which brings the world’s top nature filmmakers together to share wildlife stories that engage, inspire and educate. The breathtaking footage and high-definition quality picture is captivating for audiences of all ages and is a must-add to the in-home collection.
Disneynature was launched in April 2008. Its mission is to bring the world’s top nature filmmakers together to share a wide variety of wildlife stories on the big screen in order to engage, inspire and educate theatrical audiences everywhere. Walt Disney was a pioneer in wildlife filmmaking, producing 13 True-Life Adventure motion pictures between 1948 and 1960, which earned eight Academy Awards®. The first seven Disneynature films, “Earth,” “Oceans,” “African Cats,” “Chimpanzee,” “Bears,” “Monkey Kingdom,” and “Born in China” are seven of the top eight highest overall grossing feature-length nature films to date, with “Chimpanzee” garnering a record-breaking opening weekend for the genre. Disneynature’s commitment to conservation is a key pillar of the label and the films empower the audience to help make a difference.
