Those bastards at Disney just ripped me off...

We just watched Disney's much-hyped nature documentary Earth, and boy do we feel screwed over.

Earth features eye-popping film of animals from around the globe, beautiful breathtaking astounding images... THAT I HAVE EFFING SEEN BEFORE in the fantastic BBC documentary series Planet Earth.

While Disney does acknowledge the BBC in the credits, I sure didn't see them acknowledge that they took eleven hours of TV documentary and edited it down to 90 minutes of movie documentary with nothing new but a voice-over by James Earl Jones. We sat through the flick going, seen that, seen that, yep Victoria Falls sure is beautiful and haven't we seen that before, oh look it is the same elephants being hunted at night shot we sure have seen that...

Part two of this series, Oceans, opens in theatres on April 22, Earth Day. I will not be there, as am guessing that yes I have already seen that...

as much as i like darth vader... i still prefer the BBC production, a cherished boxset.
too bad for you.
but good that you shared this as it'll spare a few from committing the mistake of believing it is brand new stuff.

Blimey, are they allowed to do that? .... The BBC (and David Dimbleby in particular) are incredibly good at wildfile programmes.... I didn't even know you could get them in the US.

Disney is the Anti-Christ, you can't be surprised they would do something dumb like this.
