SEE “OCEANS,” SAVE OCEANS. "See OCEANS, Save Oceans" is an initiative in which Disneynature will make a contribution to The Nature Conservancy to save coral reefs in honor of every guest who sees “Oceans” during opening week (April 22-28, 2010).
ABOUT THE MOVIE: Disneynature, the studio that presented the record-breaking film “Earth,” brings OCEANS to the big screen on Earth Day, 2010. Nearly three-quarters of the Earth’s surface is covered by water and “Oceans” boldly chronicles the mysteries that lie beneath. Directors Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud dive deep into the very waters that sustain all of mankind—exploring the harsh reality and the amazing creatures that live within. “Oceans” is rated G by the MPAA.
ABOUT “MAKE A WAVE” END CREDIT SONG: Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato teamed up to sing the end credit song for the film "Make A Wave." All proceeds from purchasing the duet on iTunes will benefit environmental charities through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund as part of Disney's Friends for Change.
ABOUT WYLAND: 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.
ABOUT DISNEYNATURE: “Oceans” is the second release from the new Disneynature
film label out of The Walt Disney Studios. Launched in April 2008, Disneynature
is carrying on the long tradition of wildlife films that started with Walt
Disney himself, who produced 13 True-Life Adventure motion pictures between
1949 and 1960, including “Seal Island” (1949), “Beaver Valley” (1950),
“The Living Desert” (1953) and “Jungle Cat” (1958). The films earned eight
Academy Awards®. “Earth,” the first film to premiere domestically under
the new label on Earth Day 2009, garnered a record-breaking opening weekend
for a nature film. On its opening day, the film also broke the single-day
box-office record for a nature film.
