BEARS

This Earth Day DisneyNature invites you to visit the incredible world of Bears. It’s the newest film in the tradition of Walt Disney’s True Life Adventure films and possibly their best yet.

Promising an epic story of breathtaking scale, Disneynature’s 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!

Disneynature’s Bears opens in theaters in time for Earth Day on April 18, 2014.

Disneynature’s Chimpanzee opens this weekend and as such you may be looking for some information and activities that tie-in to the film. You’re in luck.

The good people at Disneynature have released a series of kid-friendly activity sheets, educational packets, and production information for your enjoyment (I know I said it’s for non-chimps, but chimps can do it too. It’s all in the thumbs!). Take a look:
