I have heard of Disneynature before but, it was a trailer for "Chimpanzee", but back then I thought it was going to be just another documentary about creature's lives, formed into a story.
At first when I looked at this documentary, "wings of life" my first impression was it was going to be about butterflies, and birds and bees and all those flying pollinators. but I was in for a surprise. That surprise was what got me hooked up, the documentary was literally turned into a story, like a nature ballet and the "star actors" are the flowers, inanimate and slightly motionless yet "given souls" as though the flowers were talking themselves, whereas the pollinators are more like supporters in the play. Disney has earned credit for that many times (if you still remember "Flowers and Trees"), turning objects into actors with souls.
Even though Disneynature is just a division of the major company, its documentary still carries that surreal magic, its a great movie, I would recommend it to anyone.
