L'océan recouvre plus de 70% de la Terre et lui donne sa couleur et son surnom: la planète bleue. Nous découvrons ces merveilleux fonds sous-marins accompagné d'un jeune dauphin surnommé Blue qui nous guide au cœur du monde aquatique et nous fait découvrir des créatures étranges, merveilleuses, fantastiques évoluant dans un équilibre fragile. L'espèce du dauphin est fortement mis en avant en montrant notamment le lien fort qui existe entre une mère et son petit. La baleine à bosse ainsi que les différentes barrières de corail sont également des éléments essentiels du film.

A brown bear mother named Sky gives birth to two cubs named Amber and Scout in her den on a mountain slope. When April comes the bears will be ready to leave the den. As the bears leave the oncoming summer brings with it a threat of avalanches. Fortunately the bears are able to avoid disaster. Upon reaching the lush valley below, the cubs meet the other bears, some of which pose a threat to the cubs; among these bears are Magnus, a big healthy male, and Chinook, an older male. The family works together to survive the spring, with Sky keeping the cubs safe from Tikaani, a pesky gray wolf. The cubs get to know how to defend themselves in encounters with Tikaani. Also the family must stay clear of the frequent dominance fights between Magnus and Chinook.

Oscar is the nickname given by the narrator (Tim Allen) to a young chimpanzee in his toddler years. He is part of a close-knit tribe of chimpanzees. They occupy a forest territory which is rich in native fruits, nuts, and figs, among other things. The chimps hunt small tree monkeys, and they also eat termites collected with primitive tools made from sticks. They also use rocks as tools to crack nuts. Oscar is tended by his mother, nicknamed Isha, and from her he begins learning many things about how to survive in the jungle. In the chaos of an attempted raid by a rival gang of chimpanzees led by 'Scar', Isha is injured and separated from the group and her son. As told by the narrator, Isha is most probably the victim of a nocturnal leopard.

Bien que les mers recouvrent plus des deux tiers de notre planète, nous connaissons mieux la surface de la lune que les fonds des océans. La Planète bleue est un étonnant voyage d'une infinie richesse dans le monde marin. Des espèces inconnues vivant à des profondeurs jamais atteintes par l'homme, en passant par la naissance des crabes, la lutte des bancs de sardines contre les prédateurs de la mer et des airs, les réunions incongrues des manchots, les jeux cruels des orques, sans oublier les ballets des dauphins ou les balades majestueuses des baleines en voie d'extinction, ce film tout public nous invite à un voyage qui rapproche le spectateur de tout âge de la nature.
