In this weeks edition of family movies we’re excited about, is Disney Nature’s upcoming film, entitled Bears.
In an epic story of breathtaking scale, the film 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.
Like myself as kid, my daughter Ava loves anything to do with animals. We often watch wildlife documentaries together. She gets excited seeing real life animals on film rather than just seeing them in books.
The movie debuts on Earth Day (April 18), so it’s a great movie to educate your children on the importance of protecting wildlife and their environment. During the opening week, Disney Nature via the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, will also make a contribution to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, to protect wildlife and wild places across America’s national park system.
