First Look: Disneynature's Bears

Posted April 3, 2013 01:57 PM by Webmaster

DisneynatureDisney has released a first look preview of its next Disneynature theatrical release, Bears, which showcases a year in the life of two mother bears as they impart life lessons to their impressionable young cubs. The family friendly documentary is set to arrive in U.S. theaters next Spring, on April 18, 2014.

Official synopsis: Set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, Bears cozies up to the brown bears who call Alaska's stunning coastal mountains and shores their home, revealing through tender moments and entertaining imagery how these animals are far from grizzly creatures. 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.

This shooting location provides some of the most spectacular visuals ever for a Disneynature film. The film is directed by Keith Scholey (African Cats) and Alastair Fothergill (Earth, African Cats and Chimpanzee). "Our commitment to the production of Disneynature films is to capture nature on its own terms and its own schedule. These films are never rushed so that we can tell never-before-seen stories in our natural world that both astound and charm audiences," said Alan Bergman, president, Walt Disney Studios. "Disneynature's next adventure Bears promises to continue this storytelling tradition by introducing audiences to a phenomenal variety of wildlife and offering rare glimpses into the day-to-day lives of these incredible animals."

For Earth Day 2013, Disney is bringing another Disneynature documentary to Blu-ray: Wings of Life, available for purchase online and in stores across the U.S. on April 16, 2013. A trailer for Wings of Life is included beneath the Bears first look preview below.




Disneynature was launched in April 2008. Its mission is to bring the world's top nature filmmakers together to share a wide variety of wildlife stories on the big screen in order to engage, inspire and educate theatrical audiences everywhere. Walt Disney was a pioneer in wildlife filmmaking, producing 13 True-Life Adventure motion pictures between 1948 and 1960, which earned eight Academy Awards. The first four Disneynature films, Earth, Oceans, African Cats and Chimpanzee, are four of the top five highest overall grossing feature-length nature films to date, with Chimpanzee garnering a record-breaking opening weekend for the genre. Disney's commitment to conservation is a key pillar of the label and Disneynature films empower the audience to help make a difference. Through donations tied to opening-week attendance for all four films, Disneynature, through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, has planted three million trees in Brazil's Atlantic Forest, established 40,000 acres of marine protected area in The Bahamas, protected 65,000 acres of savanna in Kenya, protected 129,236 acres of wild chimpanzee habitat, educated 60,000 school children about chimpanzee conservation and cared for chimpanzees.

Disneynature is great and all, I just never know if it's going to be new footage or just recycled BBC stuff...

This looks 5000 times better than Planes - it's too bad that less kids will see this then Planes.
