With a little guidance from sage family members, each must figure out how and where to find food, while learning to recognize the very real threat of danger. From their first steps of exploring their world to their final steps into independence, "Growing Up Wild" reveals the triumphs and setbacks of five young lives in which instinct, parental lessons, and trial & error ultimately define their destinies. Featuring the stunning imagery and iconic storytelling that makes Disneynature's big-screen adventures an inspiring movie-going experience, "Growing Up Wild", brings home a special look at how similar and different these young lives can be.

everything great, but the narrator's voice, tone, and accent
25 March 2017 | by pt-46826See all my reviews

This is a great documentary created by experienced people in their profession. Everything from directing to cameramanship is done so professionally tasteful, except the choice of narrator which has a bad voice, tone, and accent for this particular job. Perhaps, I should not expect the velvet voice and the theatrical tone of David Attenborough for this film as it may have been produced to be appealing to children as well as adults. But the Narrator's voice was simply bad for the job and almost unbearable for me. He narrates with a sort of an American childish accent. Thanks for the great film though!
