It is a story of cranes, pandas, antelope, monkeys and snow leopards … all of whom call China their home.
I am so excited that Disneynature’s BORN IN CHINA opens in theaters everywhere this Friday! Did you know that DisneyNatue is giving back? I love that moviegoers who see Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure film BORN IN CHINA during its opening week (April 21-27, 2017) will benefit the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Based on opening-week attendance, Disneynature, via the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, will make a contribution to the WWF to help protect wild pandas and snow leopards in China.
Here are some fun Panda facts:

Meet the Animals:
RED-CROWNED CRANES TAKE FLIGHT -It is said that when a crane takes flight, it carries along the spirit of a departed creature from this world to the next.
AN OVER-PROTECTIVE PANDA- Once YaYa has completed her morning chores, she returns to her real focus in life: her newborn daughter, MeiMei.
A DISPLACED MONKEY- Monkeys have long been seen as figures of rebellion and mischief in Chinese folk tales. And one of the most mischievous monkeys on this mountain is TaoTao.
STRUGGLES OF A SNOW LEOPARD MOM -Every part of her body is designed for this unique terrain: from her exceptionally long tail that helps her maintain balance to her grey dappled fur that provides the perfect camouflage in these rocky surroundings.
