Disneynature Bears is opening in theaters next Friday, April 18! I cannot wait for all of you to see it. I was able to get a sneak peak while on my trip to Los Angeles last month and it was AMAZING! I plan on taking my kiddos to see it as soon as it comes out! Disney is also releasing TONS of FREE learning materials to use along with the viewing of the film. We are going to stray from our “normal” homeschool curriculum for a few days and incorporate some nature studies centered around this film. You can print your own Disneynature Bears Family Fun Kit HERE! The kit includes make your own mask, Disneynature Bears wordsearch, Disneynature Bears game and cut outs. There will be more to come and I’ll get them all posted for you as soon as they become available!
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. “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”), and narrated by John C. Reilly, “Bears” arrives in theaters April 18, 2014, to celebrate Earth Day.
