Disneynature Bears On Blu-ray and DVD!


Hey All!

I recently had the opportunity to review the Blu-ray of the breathtaking true life nature adventure Disneynature’s BEARS! It showcases a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons. The film is beautifully shot from the moment the bears are born. It’s incredible to see an up close look at these adorable baby cubs. Take a look at the picture below to see how adorable they are!


We’ve been snuggling up to our own stuffed Bear based on the movie that we got as a gift as we watched the Blu-ray. Set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, their journey begins as winter comes to an end and the bears emerge from hibernation to face the bitter cold. The world outside is exciting—but risky—as the cubs’ playful descent down the mountain carries with it a looming threat of avalanches. As the season changes from spring to summer, the brown bears must work hard to find food—ultimately feasting at a plentiful salmon run—while staying safe from rival male bears and predators, including an ever-present wolf. “Bears” captures the fast-moving action and suspense of life in one of the planet’s last great wildernesses—Alaska!


Bears is directed by Alastair Fothergill (“Earth,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee”) and Keith Scholey (“African Cats”), and narrated by John C. Reilly.

Disneynature is the studio that brought you “Earth” and “Chimpanzee” in case you didn’t know. “Bears” will be available on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy), Digital HD, Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA), and On-Demand, Aug. 12, 2014.

To celebrate the in-home debut of “Bears,” Disneynature is proud to continue the conservation program initiated with the film’s theatrical release. For every purchase of the movie through August 19, 2014, Disneynature will make a donation through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, to further protect and conserve endangered or threatened wildlife and wild places as well as enhance field research across more than 2.9 million acres of National Park Service land.

Bonus features on the “Bears” Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, and Digital HD include the music video for “Carry On,” featuring Olivia Holt, and four making-of featurettes, including “Welcome To Alaska,” which tracks the filmmakers as they set forth on an epic journey to film Sky and her cubs out in the wilds of the Alaskan frontier; “The Future For The Bears,” which spotlights a special visit to the film’s production from legendary primatologist and conservationist Jane Goodall; “A Guide to Living With Bears,” which introduces viewers to the guides who instructed the filmmakers on how to work with these magnificent creatures; and “How Did They Film That?,” which provides an inside look on some of the extreme filmmaking that went into getting shots high in the mountains and under frigid cold water.


This is a must-own Disneynature true life adventure! If you or your family enjoy the Disneynature films, this is a must have to add to your collection. We’ve got many nights of snuggling to do with this guy as we enjoy BEARS!
