From Disneynature, the studio that brought you Earth and Chimpanzee, comes the heartwarming and breathtaking true life adventure Bears. Directed by Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey, Academy Award-nominated actor John C. Reilly narrates this visually spectacular epic film that showcases a year in the life of a bear family. Set in the majestic Alaskan wilderness, the film follows a fiercely protective mama bear named Sky and her two impressionable young cubs, Amber and Scout, who are taught life’s most important lessons.
When winter ends, Sky and her cubs emerge from hibernation and face the bitter cold, exciting but risky outside world. Astonishing footage captures the endearing family as they search for food and encounter a variety of threats. Along the way, they run into a pair of imposing male bears named Magnus and Chinook, as well as a cunning, starving wolf named Tikani. Sky teaches her cubs how to watch out for danger and hunt for food -- to become self-sufficient, all the while living life to the fullest in one of the planet’s last great wilderness.
Special features include “Carry On” music video by Olivia Holt and four making-of featurettes, including “Welcome To Alaska,” which tracks the filmmakers as they set forth on an epic journey to film Sky and her cubs out in the wilds of the Alaskan frontier; “The Future For The Bears,” which spotlights a special visit to the film’s production from legendary primatologist and conservationist Jane Goodall; “A Guide to Living With Bears,” which introduces viewers to the guides who instructed the filmmakers on how to work with these magnificent creatures; and “How Did They Film That?,” which provides an inside look on some of the extreme filmmaking that went into getting shots high in the mountains and under frigid cold water.
To celebrate the in-home debut of Bears, Disneynature is proud to continue the conservation program initiated with the film’s theatrical release. For every purchase of the movie through August 19, 2014, 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.
