I don’t think I’ve ever been more interested in getting ticket numbers for a movie — but the stats for Disneynature’s EARTH are certainly worth watching.

As we’ve reported to the point of ad nauseam, the new nature-themed studio from Disney will be planting one tree for every person who sees EARTH on its opening weekend. With a launch of this Wednesday, that gives plenty of days for moviegoers to hit the theatres and help out the planet in the process. Granted, they’ll probably all be driving there — but let’s focus on the positive for the moment.

Apparently, advance tickets to the film have been selling so well, that over 500,000 trees are already committed to being planted. Disney will oversee the planting of the trees in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, which is considered one of the most endangered rain forests in the world. Today, only seven percent of the Atlantic Forest remains.

So hey — give your kids a treat and take them to something that will delight as well as educate. Sure beats having to suffer through Hannah Montana. Again.
