[Watch Oceans trailer on MovieSet]

How will I be spending Earth Day? Well, that all depends on how much work I can get done between now and tomorrow morning. You see, if I have my druthers, I’ll be at the 10 am showing of Disneynature’s Oceans, cherry Icee and Jujubes in hand. (Make that organic home-popped popcorn and a Klean Kanteen of ice water smuggled into my canvas tote bag.)

The film, which opens tomorrow, promises a breathtakingly beautiful look at all five of our planet’s oceans — including a first-time look at some of the otherworldly creatures that live there, thanks to the latest in high-tech underwater filming technologies and over seven years of painstaking work from directors Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud.

That the movie is being released on Earth Day only highlights how blue, is in fact, the new green: It’s our oceans that are already starting to realize the detrimental effects of climate change, what with acidification threatening to wipe out many shellfish and corals completely in the coming decades; it’s our oceans that will no longer be a source of food for coming generations if we continue our current rates of overfishing.
