In this behind the scenes movie, we watch the journey of filmmakers as they film the documentary, Elephant. It is always interesting to watch these films after you have sent the original documentary to see how difficult and trying it was to capture those beautiful images. We see as these filmmakers face the challenges of weather, dangerous animals and wild African terrain. Although I enjoyed Elephant more, I would say to give this movie a watch at least once to see how it was made.


Disney Nature has now shown us the wonderful world of dolphins. We see a herd of dolphins survive in their underwater home. This movie focuses mostly on a young dolphin named Echo as he learns how to survive. But Echo is a curious rambunctious dolphin who would rather explore and push the rules rather than just follow them. This movie was great for a one time viewing. I don’t think that I have to revisit it again, but wouldn’t mind if I did.


Elephant is another Disney Nature that follows, you guessed it, elephants. We watch as a herd of elephants with a newly born calf, migrate across Africa to the Zambezi River. I don’t know about you but I LOVE elephants so I was all about this documentary. But it really is quite interesting to see all the elephants must go through when they migrate. And to learn that this is what elephants have been doing for hundreds of years. This movie made me cry and it made me laugh. We enjoyed it and think it’s one to definitely check out.
