Disneynature is back again to awe and inspire audiences with the majesty of the outdoors. We’ve already seen Disneynature focus on the amazing lives of chimpanzees, lions, and birds. Now we’re seeing the life of bears in the aptly titled film, “Bears.”
The film focuses on a bear family in Alaska who survive through the seasons against the elements and predators. Here’s more on “Bears”:
“In an epic story of breathtaking scale, Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure ‘Bears’ showcases a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons. 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 pack. “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”). Excited about seeing this True Life Adventure? Well, you can view it in the movie theaters April 18, 2014, just in time for Earth Day (with Disneynature donating a portion of the opening-week ticket sales to the National Park Foundation). But until then, you can get your first glimpse of the bear family in the trailer below.
