My seven year old was excited to get a copy of this to watch as every time the commercials would come on he would stop whatever he was doing and just become fixated. We watched this together and he loved it! I really didn’t think it would hold is attention but he liked watching the two baby cubs, Amber and Scout. The film takes you on a journey with momma bear Sky in Alaska.
The Disneynature series also includes “Earth,” “Oceans,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee,”. Did you know that through donations tied to opening-week attendance and week 1 Blu-ray sales 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? As for “Bears”, every purchase of the movie during the first week of its release, Disneynature will make a donation through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, to further protect and conserve endangered or threatened wildlife and wild places as well as enhance field research across more than 2.9 million acres of National Park Service land.
Disneynature Bears is an epic story of breathtaking scale, this heartwarming and visually spectacular film showcases a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons.
