My Review of Disneynature Bears #DisneynatureBears #‎MeetTheCubs‬

disney nature bears

Happy! Happy Earth Day!  How awesome is it that the new Disneynature Bears is coming out today, Earth Day 2014?  I am completely pumped for a couple of reasons.  First, I ADORE this movie and second, we love Earth Day!  Disneynature Bears is a documentary style film that takes you through the life of a mother bear (Sky) and her two cubs; Amber and Scout.  This movie really shows the mother’s love that even a bear can show as she fights for her own survival and that of her two cubs.  There were times during the film where I could really relate to how Sky must have felt as she struggled to simply keep her babies alive, alone in the wilderness.  What a strong mother and unfailing love for her cubs.  You will love this story as it takes you through the snow into the beautiful streams in the wilderness of Alaska.

About Disneynature:

Disneynature was launched on Earth Day 2008 with the mission of bringing 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 entertain 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, EarthOceansAfrican 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.

Conservation has been 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 nearly 130,000 acres of wild chimpanzee habitat, educated 60,000 school children about chimpanzee conservation and cared for chimpanzees.

About Disneynature 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! 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.

The Disney Store will contribute $1 to the NATIONAL PARK FOUNDATION for every BEARS plush purchased between now and 5/11/14. Get yours HERE!

Million Dollar Arm Featurette #MillionDollarArm

Million Dollar Arm Featurette

Can we say excited?! Oh yeah, we are huge baseball fans around here! What can be better than a movie made by Disney about baseball? Well, my son thinks NOTHING LOL He and my husband are the most excited about this new movie coming out next month. I thought, for a moment, that I might let them go watch it by themselves while the girls and I watch a more “girly” movie, but then I remembered it has Joh Hamm in it! Ummmm, I think I’m going to want to watch this one too :D

million dollar arm

From Disney:

Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseball’s next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called “The Million Dollar Arm.” With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (played by Madhur Mittal from “Slumdog Millionaire”) and Rinku (played by Suraj Sharma from “Life of Pi”), two 18-year-old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India, the boys, who have never left their rural villages, are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell), learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.

MALEFICENT “The Legacy” JUST RELEASED

MALEFICENT “The Legacy”

Angelina SAY WHAT?! I am so stinkin’ excited about Maleficent coming out next month; YES NEXT MONTH! I cannot believe it is already here. It seems like it was just yesterday when I was drooling over the first pictures coming out and here we are with, yet another, video. This one is different though; it has behind-the-scenes footage of an interview with Angelina Jolie. This is the new “Legacy” featurette. I can’t wait for the movie!!!

From Disney:

“Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.
