Make it Earth Week - Check out the Earth Day and Family Friendly title @Disneynature 'Wings of Life' on Video!

Whether you spend Earth Day outdoors or indoors, if you are looking for a fun way to engage the entire family, I would recommend Disneynature's Wings Of Life available now on Blu-ray Combo Pack and HD Digital.

The Movie opens with an amazing quote: 

"Life Depends on the Little Things We Take For Granted."

The theme unfolds in a series of stunning displays of Nature at it's absolute finest while exploring the  intersection of animal and plant worlds and how they are all inter-dependent on one another. Disneynature is the same studio behind the popular titles "Earth", "Oceans", "African Cats" and "Chimpanzee".

The latest release, "Wings of Life" is narrated by Meryl Streep, and her narration has an incredibly soothing quality to it that makes the narration from one scene to the other feel effortless and easy.

It is an intimate look into the world of butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, bats and flowers, a third of the world's food supply depends on these amazing creatures. Creatures that are increasingly threatened.

Check out the Clip Monarch Wings of Life:

There are so many ways to help enhance the movie and activities you can do with your child to help integrate what they see and learn in the movie and help to bring the message home!

Teach Your Children to Plant and Care for us.

and if you don't have a Garden, or are an apartment dweller, you can join in the fun too:

Plant Us In a Window Box!

Some Go Green Reminders:

Go Local, Support Your Organic Farmers and Beekeepers!

Join a Neighborhood Cooperative Garden!

and I have to admit this one, is one of my favorite tips:

Plant us alongside roadways. The land there is open to everyone!

Wouldn't you rather see flowers than trash along the roadways?

Plant us in a backyard or a rooftop Garden!

and you know Ascending Butterfly is all for this tip:

Bring Back the Monarchs, Plant Milkweed!

There are tons of great butterfly sightings in the movie:

Seeing the Monarch Butterflies in the trees and watching them fly off is one of the most visually impactful moments in the movie, it looks at first as if the butterflies are just leaves that begin to change color for Fall, but the butterflies are actually so plenty in number that they can literally bend the tree!

Watching the Caterpillar change into a Butterfly is another one of my favorite scenes in this movie, it's captured in such amazing detail, and is one of the most amazing transformations in nature!

Even those pesky picnic pests, Bees, have an important role in Nature as they are the pollinators that keep the flowers blooming by helping them to achieve what they cannot do on their own.

The movie ends with a song that says "Where there is life there is love and hidden beauty"

My Take:

The cinematography is breath-taking, and this family friendly movie has a lesson in it for all ages, this has to be the perfect way to bring a bit of Earth Day home!

Make your special little someone's happy!

Ascending Butterfly in conjunction with the One2One Network is proud to introduce (or re-introduce, we should say!) Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition!

Now as many of you already know, game night is usually Friday nights here, and it consists of friends and family, our favorite video games (which I won't mention which platform/system here just in case the competition wants us to review theirs, LOL!), loads of snacks, and yes soft drinks too!

This week I received Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition Disney Blu-ray Combo Pack! This is brilliant, you get both a Blu-Ray and a traditional DVD of the movie for about the same price of just a plain DVD. This allows the Blu-Ray to stay in the home theater room/living room and the traditional DVD can be used in any other room, and let's not forget the car, perfect companion for long car trips!

My nieces were so excited we moved up 'game' night and changed it to movie night! I will admit the grown ups were equally excited to re-visit a classic favorite from our youth. (Ladies aren't we all still secretly waiting for that prince? LOL) We screened the Blu-Ray which boasts first time ever High Definition 7.1 sound, it truly felt like we were out at a movie theater! The kiddies loved it!

What is the Limited Diamond Edition?

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: Diamond Edition includes a Blu-ray disc and a DVD in one package! You can enjoy the incredible high definition experience of Blu-ray at home, and use the DVD in the kids' room, in the car, or on your computer. Disney Blu-ray Combo Packs are the perfect way to start your Blu-ray collection!

Not only will you get the classic tale of Snow White in this 2-disc special, it comes with plenty of extras:

  • First time ever in High Definition 7.1 sound
  • All new music video!
  • Disneyview - Expanded viewing experience
  • Disney Family Plan – games for everyone to enjoy
  • Backstage Disney – go behind the scenes of this legendary tale
  • Classic Bonus features include Dopey’s Wild Mine Ride Game, Karoke Sing A Long, and so much more
This is a must-have addition to any contemporary family's movie library and it's only available for a limited time!

What is Disney Blu-Ray?

The revolutionary new Diamond Edition provides the highest-level viewing experience, immersive interactivity, unprecedented value, quality, and versatility with the exceptional picture and sound of Blu-ray and the extended utility of DVD. Upgrading to Blu-ray offers you technology on more scratch resistant and kid-proof discs and Blu-ray players play both Blu-ray discs and your favorite DVDs.
And, if you already own Snow White on VHS or DVD, click here to grab a $10 off coupon for the new Diamond Edition Combo Pack! Offer is only good until October 20, but starting this fall Disney will introduce their Blu-ray Upgrade program so you will be able to upgrade other Disney titles in your library too!
