Disney and Imax have set an April 29 release for their co-production of the Toni Myers documentary “A Beautiful Planet” — a week after the traditional Earth Day celebration.

A Beautiful Planet” will receive a special presentation at the Giant Screen Cinema Association’s International Conference and Trade Show next week in San Francisco, with Myers unveiling footage from the film.

“A Beautiful Planet” was made in cooperation with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). It includes footage shot by astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

“Toni has crafted a remarkable film that uniquely captures the raw beauty of our planet,” said Imax Entertainment CEO Greg Foster.

“‘A Beautiful Planet’ provides a unique perspective on our relationship with Earth, offering audiences a vantage point that very few have ever been able to experience,” said Alan Bergman, president of Walt Disney Studios. “Imax is a perfect format for the film’s spectacular and immersive imagery.”

Myers’ most recent documentary was 2010’s “Hubble 3D,” which has grossed nearly $70 million in Imax locations. She also made the Imax documentaries “Blue Planet” and “Space Station 3D.”
