Background

Disney veteran Jean-Francois Camilleri, who has served as senior vice president and general manager for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures France is the head the new unit. Disneynature is based in France, where Camilleri and his team oversees the initiation, development and acquisition of high quality feature projects.

The first film released domestically under the new label was the American version of Earth, from award-winning British producer/director Alastair Fothergill, whose credits include the landmark Planet Earth series for the BBC and The Discovery Channel and The Blue Planet. Earth, produced by BBC Worldwide and Greenlight Media and co-directed by Mark Linfield, was released in cinemas internationally in 2007. It premiered in the U.S. on Earth Day, April 22, 2009.

The first new production to be released by Disneynature was announced to be The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos.[1] The world premiere of the film took place in Bordeaux, France on October 26, 2008, and was released internationally throughout 2009.

On April 22, 2010, they released Oceans, a movie that shows the oceans in a new way. They also released the trailer for African Cats, which was released in the US on Earth Day 2011.
