OCEANS

Introduction
"‘Oceans' allows the audience to be a part of marine life—to share all the emotions engendered by the exploration of the last great wild expanse: wonder, fear, calm, tenderness, violence, vitality, power. We took the time to allow the animals to invite us in. We waited to become a fish among fish.”  Jacques Cluzaud, Director

Disneynature, the studio that presented the record-breaking film "Earth,” brings "Oceans” to the big screen on Earth Day, 2010. Nearly three-quarters of the Earth's surface is covered by water and "Oceans” boldly chronicles the mysteries that lie beneath. Directors Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud dive deep into the very waters that sustain all of mankind—exploring the harsh reality and the amazing creatures that live within. Featuring spectacular never-before- seen imagery captured by the latest underwater technologies, "Oceans” offers an unprecedented look beneath the sea.

"Oceans” puts audiences in the very heart of the action, racing along amid a school of traveling tuna, leaping with dolphins and swimming shoulder-to-fin with the great white shark. "Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud have given us the pleasure of looking over their shoulders and doing what I have only dreamed of being able to do,” says Dr. Sylvia Earle, Explorer in Residence at the National Geographic Society. "Watching this film, I felt as if I were in a school of fish, that I was a dolphin or a whale, swimming along with them. It takes me places I've always wanted to go. This is beyond art. This captures the spirit, the very essence of the sea.”

Narrated by actor and active environmentalist Pierce Brosnan ("The Ghost Writer,” "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” "Mamma Mia!”), "Oceans” also shines a light on the many threats, both natural and manmade, facing the oceans and their populations. The magic and the wonder of life at sea will be unveiled when "Oceans” opens on April 22, 2010, the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. "Oceans” is the second film from Disneynature, the first new Disney-branded film label from Walt Disney Studios in more than 60 years.

Disneynature brings the world's top nature filmmakers together to share a wide variety of wildlife subjects and stories with theatrical audiences. "Earth,” the label's first release, broke records for both opening weekend and single-day box office for a nature documentary. The label carries on the work begun by Walt Disney, himself a pioneer in wildlife filmmaking who produced 13 True-Life Adventure motion pictures between 1949 and 1960, including "Seal Island” (1949), "Beaver Valley” (1950), "The Living Desert” (1953) and "Jungle Cat” (1958) and earning the studio eight Academy Awards®. Rated G by the MPAA, "Oceans” is a film by Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud, produced by Jacques Perrin and Nicolas Mauvernay. Executive producer is Jake Eberts and Disneynature executive producers are Don Hahn ("Earth,” "The Lion King,” "Beauty and the Beast”) and Kirk Wise ("Beauty and the Beast”). The English-language narration was written by Michael Katims.
