EARTH, the beautiful and powerful documentary released by DisneyNature earlier this year, is coming to DVD and Blu-ray. Here at The Disney Blog we’ve been given two copies to give away. See below for details on how to enter the drawing.
On September 1, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment releases EARTH on Blu-ray and DVD! This trio of unforgettable stories is woven together by award-winning filmmakers Alistair Fothegrill (“The Blue Planet) and Mark Linfield (“Planet Earth”), and narrated by Academy Award-winner James Earl Jones. In Blu-ray, the film gives audiences an unmatched opportunity to view its dizzying aerial photography, epic backdrops and rare footage of land, sea and air in astonishing high definition. Bonus material includes a making-of featurette and more.
A large part of Walt Disney’s legacy is his love of the outdoors. You see it in the true life adventure series, the parks, and ultimately in his plans for EPCOT. My hope is that the new Disneynature label will return to this legacy in full. To win a copy of Earth (the DVD version) leave a comment on this post with your idea for what you’d like to see from the Disneynature label in the future. Specific answers with a focus on Walt’s legacy will get extra weight. Make sure to provide a valid email address! Delivery only to US addresses. A winner will be chosen September 4th at Noon eastern.

Available in a single-disc DVD or two-disc Blu-ray Hi-Def/DVD Combo Pack, Earth includes bonus features that offer viewers an in-depth look at the making of the film and an opportunity to learn more about our planet and its myriad fascinating inhabitants. In Blu-ray, the film gives audiences an unmatched opportunity to view its dizzying aerial photography, epic backdrops and rare footage of land, sea and air in astonishing high definition.
Bonus Features for Earth

In the Arctic, a mother polar bear trailed by her two cubs searches for food as their icy hunting grounds melt away. A herd of African elephants slowly traverses the arid Kalahari Desert toward the water-rich Okavango Delta. A humpback whale and her calf make a 4,000-mile journey in an epic migration that takes them from tropical waters all the way to Antarctica. Remarkable high-definition footage follows these creatures and more to places human beings rarely see, capturing unique worlds populated by Mandarin ducks and birds of paradise, as well as a pride of lions and a vast caribou herd. Filled with surprising facts and extraordinary images, Earth is a dazzling portrait of life on our planet.
