Bird Movies: The Crimson Wing

22 12 2008

Talking of bird movies (see my post on Ghost Bird), it seems as if I was bemoaning the lack of them a little too soon. Apparently Disney will soon be releasing The Crimson Wing which focus’s on Tanzania’s Lake Natron and its  population of Lesser Flamingos.  From the trailer, the cinematography looks fantastic.

The film heralds the relaunch of Disney’s Disneynature company. “We hope these films will contribute to a greater understanding and appreciation of the beauty and fragility of our natural world”, said Robert A. Iger, president and CEO, The Walt Disney Company. I hope they do too!
