August 26, 2009 – The Film OceanWorld 3D is Released in France
“Have you ever dreamed of discovering an incredible, surprising, and occasionally dangerous world?”
On August 26, 2009, the nature film OceanWorld 3D was released in France. This film was a joint production between Disneynature, 3D Entertainment, and German film distributor Wild Bunch, with Disney handling the distribution of the film throughout the United States and Mexico. OceanWorld 3D was an ambitious project, as it took seven years and over 200 hours of footage across various parts of the ocean, including California’s kelp forests, the Great Barrier Reef, and Argentina’s Peninsula Valdez. This is also the first nature documentary to be filmed and released in 3D. It was written by Jean-Jacques Mantello and Francois Mantello, and directed by Jean-Jeacques Mantello.
