I got news the other day that Oceans from DisneyNature will be released on Earth Day 2010. I’m really excited about this, not only because I expect it will be every bit as captivating and utterly gorgeous as Earth was, but also because, as they did with Earth, they are going to use a portion of the ticket sales for the greater, greener good!
