Earth’s Wild Ride is a fast paced movie that immerses audiences in a 3-D tour of Earth’s history and natural wonders. Set on the surface of the Moon in the year 2081, the movie opens with a grandfather and his grandchildren gazing into space on the evening of an Earth eclipse. As they watch the shadow of the Moon move across the Earth, the grandfather tells stories of crashing asteroids, erupting volcanoes, roaring dinosaurs, and electrifying lighting in a booming thunderstorm. While learning about eclipses, the ice age, Earth’s water cycle and differences between the Earth and Moon, the audience is taken on a roller-coaster like ride through canyons of raging rivers and hot flowing lava.
