Earth Day 2022: From Welcome to Earth to Polar Bear, watch films and documentaries about the planet on Disney+ Hotstar

Our Earth is a unique globe that sustains spell-binding species across its diverse environments, from majestic monsters that survive at -34 °C in the Arctic to sea mammals with extraordinary communication skills. As Disney+ Hotstar commemorates the gift of life given to us by our great planet on Earth Day, they present Polar Bear, a fascinating documentary. 

Watch the new film narrated by Catherine Keener, a two-time Academy Award® nominee, and others to go into some of Earth's most diverse places from the comfort of our own homes with these nature-based films.

America's National Parks
This docu-series takes the audience on a unique journey of North America's natural wonders with its iconic species, spanning seven national parks from Yosemite to Yellowstone to the Great Smoky Mountains.
Dolphin Reef
Disneynature's Dolphin Reef, directed by Keith Scholey and narrated by Academy Award® and Golden Globe® winner Natalie Portman, tells the story of Echo, a young Pacific bottlenose dolphin that is more interested in exploring the coral reef and its inhabitants than learning how to survive inside it.
Hostile Planet: Ultimate Survivors
The film, directed by Guillermo Navarro and narrated by Bear Grylls, depicts how animals that have evolved to survive in the most hazardous environments on Earth must suddenly adapt to a new reality in the blink of an evolutionary eye. Their dilemma is simple: adapt or die. They face everything from innately unfriendly surroundings and brutally harsh weather to the unrelenting danger of predators and strong competition for resources.
Mission Critical
In this docu-series, Brian Skerry, Steve Winter, and Tim Laman, award-winning National Geographic photographers, go on assignment to show us what we need to know to save iconic species from extinction, safeguard ourselves, and make space for a better, more sustainable planet. They visit a variety of settings, including Cape Cod, Borneo's tropics, and the heart of Mumbai, where they have only one chance to tell us their tales and make a difference.
Ocean's Weirdest
Ocean's Weirdest, a Nat Geo Original series, is a fascinating documentary that delves into the oddest, weirdest, and freakiest behaviors of incredible marine species. It demonstrates how creatures stretch themselves into bizarre shapes, grow into incredible adaptations, and execute mind-boggling endurance feats.
One Strange Rock
The incredible narrative of Earth and what makes it unique is the subject of a National Geographic docu-series. It illustrates all of the variables that contribute to our planet's exceptional ability to support life in a largely unknown but harsh cosmic environment. This series explores the fragility and magnificence of planet Earth and was created by the award-winning partnership of filmmaker Darren Aronofsky and producer Jane Root.
Penguins: Life On The Edge
The Disneynature documentary film, directed by Alastair Fothergill and Jeff Wilson, is about the harsh Antarctic environment and its most well-known residents, penguins. It's a coming-of-age narrative about Steve, an Adélie penguin, and his exploits. The film's cinematographers braved freezing temperatures, hurricane-force gusts, and the overwhelming fragrance of one million penguins, as narrated by American actor Blair Underwood.
Polar Bear
Disneynature's Polar Bear, narrated by two-time Academy Award® nominee Catherine Keener, depicts the story of a new mother whose childhood memories prepare her to handle motherhood in the increasingly difficult world that polar bears face today. Alastair Fothergill and Jeff Wilson, who also directed Disneynature's Penguins, directed the film.
Secrets of the Whales
The docu-series is narrated by award-winning actress and conservationist Sigourney Weaver, scored by French composer Raphaelle Thibaut and directed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker and conservationist James Cameron. It transports viewers to the heart of whale culture, allowing them to witness the incredible communication abilities and complex social structures of five different whale species: orcas, humpbacks, belugas, narwhals, and sperm whales.
Welcome to Earth
Welcome to Earth, a Disney+ Hotstar special series from National Geographic, takes Oscar winner Will Smith on an unprecedented, once-in-a-lifetime journey around the globe to see Earth's greatest beauties and delve into its profoundly concealed secrets. The Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Darren Aronofsky produced this six-part limited series.
