Posted April 3, 2013 by Rick in Movie News


Disneynature’s film Bears has released a new featurette that offers a new image and a first look at some never before seen footage. In the first half of the footage, it focuses on the studios past nature documentaries and how they have been dedicated to making a true difference in the world. The second half of the footage is previews of Bears that will be coming out in 2014. This movie is directed by Keith Scholey who has also directed African Cats. The film is also directed by Alastair Fothergill who has directed Chimpanzee. The film “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.” The film promises to be an amazing view at this gorgeous world we live in. Bears opens on April 18 2014.

Here is the official synopsis for the film :

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.
