disneynature oceans, pierce brosnan, eco documentary

Just when we thought we’d never hear a foreign accent narrate an American nature documentary, along comes word that Pierce Brosnan will provide the narration for Disneynature’s new OCEANS.

The film, which hits theaters on Earth Day April 22nd, is a follow-up to last year’s highly successful EARTH film — which was narrated by James Earl Jones. In a release, Disney alludes that it chose Brosnan because of his commitment to ocean initiatives and organizations like Sea Shepherd, California Coastal Protection Network, Ocean Futures Society, Oceana and Waterkeeper Alliance, among others.

It was also announced that the film will once again be a fundraiser of sorts — using opening weekend ticket sales to determine a donation to The Nature Conservancy to save coral reefs. The program is being called “See OCEANS, Save Oceans.” For every person that sees the film, $.20 cents will be donated — with a minimum of $100,000 for the initiative. If OCEANS does as well as EARTH’s opening weekend, that would equal roughly $250,000 for TNC.

Check out the official website for the film (which has a trippy fishtank background) — or watch a trailer for the film (ironically narrated by Patrick Stewart) after the fold below.

    Oh-my-God…such beauty. It sends shivers down my spine to see that amazing footage.
    If us humans only learned to leave it untouched, it would last for many more generations, and would also save us from the doom we are creating for ourselves. I hope this film receives lots of press attention and people flock to the theaters to catch it.
