    ABOUT THE MOVIE: The first in the Disneynature lineup of films, EARTH, narrated by JAMES EARL JONES, tells the remarkable story of three animal families and their amazing journeys across the planet we all call home. EARTH combines rare action, unimaginable scale and impossible locations by capturing the most intimate moments of our planet’s wildest and most elusive creatures. Directors Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield, the acclaimed creative team behind the Emmy Award®-winning “Planet Earth,” combine forces again to bring this epic adventure to the big screen.

    Rated G, EARTH opens in theaters on Earth Day, April 22, 2009. ABOUT WYLAND: The World’s best-loved environmental artist will unveil a monumental original work of art for Earth Day inspired by Disneynature’s landmark first film, “Earth.” The 4,000-square-foot painting will be revealed at the U.S. domestic premiere of “Earth.”

    Marine Life Artist Wyland has earned the distinction as one of America’s most unique creative influences and a leading advocate for marine resource conservation. He is perhaps best known for his monumental Whaling Wall mural project — an epic series of life-size marine life murals that spans fourteen countries on four continents and is viewed by an estimated 1 billion people every year. His Wyland Foundation, in partnership with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, is actively engaged in teaching millions of students around the world to become caring, informed stewards of our oceans, rivers, lakes, streams, and wetlands. Today, he is considered one of the most influential artists of the 21st Century, with artwork in museums, corporate collections, and private homes in more than one hundred countries.
