A map of the Earth shows that the 2/3 of the surface of the Earth is covered with water. Standing above the waters are the continents. These are the green, brown and white parts shown in the movie. The continents form a unique portion of the crust of the Earth known as continental crust. A second and slightly different portion of the crust of the Earth is known as oceanic crust.
