Making Of (Bonus)
I found Disneynature: The Crimson Wing to be absolutely fascinating. I learned so much. I can honestly say I had NO idea about the topics covered in this film before watching it- I had no idea that flamingos were so interesting! The images are truly spectacular.
I watched The Crimson Wing with my whole family and we all enjoyed it. It didn't hold the kids' attention quite as well as Disneynature: Oceans did but Owen did ask if he could bring it to school and show his class. The kids asked a lot of questions while watching and that is a good sign that they are engaged.
I am very impressed with Disneynature!!
