Disneynature: Bears

I admit I am a fan of bears. They are fascinating and majestic.  Several months ago, I discovered that there was going to be a documentary on a mother bear and her cubs produced by Disneynature.  I literally marked my calendar so that I would be able to see it when it came out.  On Friday, April 18th, it opened in theaters, and I dragged a friend with me to go see it.  Of course, I loved it. 

If you love bears, or the Alaskan wilderness or just want to see a fun film about some really cute animals, check out "Bears" or any of the Disneynature films. 

About the movie:
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! Directed by Alastair Fothergill (“Earth,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee”) and Keith Scholey (“African Cats”), “Bears” arrives in theaters April 18, 2014, to celebrate Earth Day.  Rated: G
