Narrated by John Krasinski (“13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” NBC’s “The Office,” “Amazon’s “Jack Ryan”), Disneynature's new True Life Adventure film “Born In China” takes an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured.

A doting panda bear mother guides her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence.

A two-year-old golden monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts. And a mother snow leopard—an elusive animal rarely caught on camera—faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet. Featuring stunning, never-before-seen imagery, the film navigates China’s vast terrain—from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest—on the wings of red-crowned cranes, seamlessly tying the extraordinary tales together.

TRAILER:

Coming Soon


I'm most excited about Beauty and the Beast! I have always been a fan of the animated movie, and this live-action version looks simply amazing (Emma Watson is gorgeous as Belle!).

And of course, I will have to see Star Wars: Episode VIII.   All we know about the movie so far is that Carrie Fisher finished filming her part as Princess/General Leia over the summer.   It was devastating losing Carrie Fisher in 2016; much love and thoughts are with her family.

What are you looking forward to seeing in 2017?
