Disneynature BEARS in theaters TODAY!
I had the pleasure of watching Disneynature Bears at Walt Disney Studios during our press trip last month. After an introduction to Disneynature films from Vice President of Marketing, Paul Baribault we sat back, relaxed, and watched nature at its finest.
We watch as momma Sky and her two cubs, Amber and Scout, live one year of their lives in the wilderness of Alaska. It is a touching and emotional journey as Sky makes sure that her babies are safe and that they will have enough food to survive the next hibernation.
This isn’t a set, this is the actual wilderness and very real. Sky has to do what she can to make sure that her cubs survive and make sure she survives this journey. I absolutely love the beauty of this film and cannot wait to take my children to see it. They are four and five and I think that they’ll enjoy watching the cubs and learning about nature.
The program SEE “BEARS,” PROTECT OUR NATIONAL PARKS invites moviegoers to see the film during opening week (April 18-24, 2014) and Disneynature, via the Disney World Conservation Fund, will make a contribution to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, to protect wildlife and the wild places across America’s national park system.
In an epic story of breathtaking scale, Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure “Bears” showcases a year in the life of two mother bears as they impart life lessons to their impressionable young cubs. 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 bear families must work together to find food—ultimately feasting at a plentiful salmon run—while staying safe from 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—where mothers definitely know best and their cubs’ survival hinges on family togetherness. Directed by Alastair Fothergill (“Earth,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee”) and Keith Scholey (“African Cats”), “Bears” is in theaters April 18, 2014, to celebrate Earth Day.
The free Disneynature BEARS Educator’s Guide includes nearly 100 pages of lessons and activities targeted to grades 2 through 6. The lessons are aligned to Next Generation Science Standards, National Science Standards, and common core Language Art and Math Standards.
