Consensus: Disneynature Born In China delivers more of the breathtaking footage the series is known for -- and more than enough cuddly anthropomorphic action to keep the kids entertained.

The narration, delivered by actor John Krasinski with a curdled dollop of aw-shucks geniality, reduces the seasonal narrative to incidents that are mapped to human cliches - a loving mother know best and a rebellious teen has to deal with his father

The film doesn't offer anything new, and doesn't stop pushing 'Family' until even the cutest animal seems to be lecturing you to listen to your parents.

"Born in China" won't teach you everything there is to know about pandas, snow leopards or snub-nosed monkeys, and its storylines feel manipulated by the Disney machine. But darned if it doesn't make you say "aww."

While the footage is breathtaking, these animal tales get wobblier every year at walking the line between educational fun and hard-to-swallow stories of animals acting out human narratives.

Disney knows on which side their bread is buttered, and there's nothing like a baby panda being cradled by its mother to make an audience go "Awww."
