What are the best nature films to celebrate Earth Day on Disney+?

Genesam Credo - Contributor

Mother Earth is waving at you! Sadly, she always does but we rarely respond. So friends, in celebration of the 50th year of Earth Day on April 22, 2020, let's make it up to her by joining Disney in its pursuit of supporting environmental causes, especially oceans and marine life around the world. This April, Disney+, together with Disneynature, brings us closer to nature by taking us into the depths of the ocean to frolic with dolphins and into the forest to marvel at the beauty of elephants, bears, chimpanzees, and other land animals. Be an environmental steward in your own little ways by watching Disney+ shows today! 

  1. 1Elephant


    Here to celebrate Earth Day with you is the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle as she is the voice behind the narration of the documentary film Elephant (2020). Join her as she follows the journey of an African Elephant named Shani and her son Jomo. This film is directed by Mark Linfield.

  1. 2Dolphin Reef


    'Elephant' might have taken the center stage this Earth Month but Dolphin Reef is making sure to have a grand entrance to the world of Disney+, two years after its theatrical release in France. Get ready to play with a Pacific dolphin under the water with Natalie Portman narrating in the background!

  2. 3Jane


    From below the world's vast oceans back into the woods, Disney+ immerses you into the life of a primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall with National Geographic film Jane (2017). Thanks to the award-winning director Brett Morgen for letting us have an intimate and closer look at the world of chimpanzees!

  1. 4Penguins


    Of course, our festive celebration of Earth Day wouldn't be complete without an expedition to the coldest place on earth, Antarctica! Directors Alastair Fothergill and Jeff Wilson have made sure that you are going to fall in love with a male Adelie penguin named Steve. Watch how he's gonna find a mate and fulfill his journey of becoming a father.

  2. 5African Cats


    Just like how Mother Earth nurtures each and every one of us, African Cats also exemplifies the power of mother love through the story of lions and cheetahs in Disneynature African Cats. Samuel L. Jackson narrates to us real-life love and the majestic kings of the savanna, just in time for the celebration of Earth Day on Disney+!

  3. 6Born in China


    Last, but definitely not the least amongst the list of movies to festively celebrate Mother Earth Day on Disney, is the 2017 Disneynature film Born in China. Don't be deceived by the photos as this isn't all about pandas! A Tibetan antelope is also here to bedazzle you. We also recommend this film to kids out there!

  4. 7Bears


    From a family of chimpanzees, Disneynature film Bears (2014) now introduces us to a matriarchal family of bears. This time, you will see the parallelism in the way a mother bear named Sky instills life's values in her cubs, Amber and Scout, with how humans do it. What a great way to celebrate Earth Day!

  5. 8Chimpanzee


    We are still in Africa but veering towards the West, the spotlight is now put on Oscar, a 3-year-old chimp with Disneynature documentary film Chimpanzee (2012). Celebrate Earth Day in an African forest with brilliant directors Mark Linfield and Alastair Fothergill as they showcase the relationship of a young chimp with the adult ones.

  6. 9America's National Parks


    What better way to celebrate our love for Mother Earth than taking part in the annual Earth Day event? One of the best nature films to celebrate Earth Day with is the show America's National Parks. Best of all, if you're on Disney+, you'll be able to watch and enjoy nature's splendor there.
