Our Thoughts On Disneynature Bears! #DisneynatureBears


Hey All!

I recently had the opportunity to attend an advanced screening of the epic and breathtaking new true life 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!


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.

Reilly does a fantastic job in narrating the cubs playful nature and life. The bears get into quite a bit of trouble in the journey to find food with their mother. It’s incredible to see a mother teaching her young to survive in the wild and also protecting her young from all the dangers in the wild. At times this poor mother bear is not only protecting her young from other bears, but she’s also protecting them from hungry wolves. Spoiler alert, Luckily no harm comes to these young cubs.


Bears” is the fifth theatrical release for Disneynature, the first new Disney-branded film label from The Walt Disney Studios in more than 60 years.  The label was launched in April 2008 to bring the world’s top nature filmmakers together to capture a variety of wildlife subjects and stories. The first four releases under the Disneynature label—“Earth,” “Oceans,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee”—are among the top five highest grossing feature-length nature films of all time.  Walt Disney was a pioneer in wildlife documentary filmmaking, producing 13 True Life Adventure motion pictures between 1948 and 1960, including “Seal Island” (1948), “Beaver Valley” (1950), “The Living Desert” (1953) and “Jungle Cat” (1958).  The films earned eight Academy Awards®.

This movie is truly a spectacular film that showcases the beauty of nature and motherhood in the wild. It’s the perfect Earth Day and educational film to see with your family! You should definitely take your kids to see in theaters on Earth Day because for any moviegoers who see the film during opening week (April 18-24, 2014) Disneynature through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund will make a contribution to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks. This will help to protect wildlife! It’s the perfect way to find something educational and fun to do with your family and help do something good for nature and the Earth on Earth day!
