I received a copy of Turtle Odyssey Bungji’s Big Adventure in order to facilitate this review, however, as always opinions are 100% my own.
Turtle Odyssey Bungji’s Big Adventure
Ya’ll back in the day when I was in the classroom teaching I went on a trip to South Padre Island, Texas and they have a Sea Turtle rescue place that was amazing. While I consider those pre-blogging days, it showed me just how important Sea Turtle Education really is. Fast forward to blogging days and my visit to Tuckaway Shores brought all of those memories back. Now, while I don’t go sea turtle crazy, I always think before I toss, will this hurt a Sea Turtle?
Fast forward a few years, and my niece Olivia loves all things Sea Turtles, but most importantly, she wants everyone to do their part by helping save the sea turtles. So when I had the chance to get my hands on an advanced copy I knew she would be thrilled. While I haven’t gotten the chance to share it with her just yet, it is a film that I could watch again and again. The adventures are perfect while teaching kids and adults more about Sea Turtles and their adventures.
On December 3, journey through tropical oceans with one of the sea’s most intriguing creatures, a sea turtle. Russell Crowe narrates Turtle Odyssey: Bunji’s Big Adventure, which will be available on 4K Ultra UHD & Blu-ray®, as well as on DVD, this December from Shout! Factory. The film utilizes the new IMAX Enhanced technology, which offers an expanded aspect ratio and immersive sound for an incredible home viewing experience.
Sea Turtles are some of the most majestic and ancient creatures on Earth. For over 100 million years, they have traversed the seas, surviving multiple mass extinctions and playing critical roles in maintaining a healthy, marine food chain. Not only do these friendly animals captivate us as they peacefully glide through the ocean, but their personal journeys of survival are equally fascinating.
Turtle Odyssey explores the unique lifecycle of an Australian Sea Turtle named Bunji and her incredible journey across the ocean. The film follows Bunji from a hatchling into adulthood as she swims thousands of miles, meeting incredible creatures and having some truly wild encounters.
