First Trailer and Poster for Disneynature’s BEARS

     August 14, 2013


The first proper trailer for Disneynature’s upcoming film Bears has been released online, and it’s predictably adorable.  Directed by Keith Scholey (African Cats) and Alastair Fothergill (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.”  Specifically, the film looks to focus on the relationship between a mother bear and her two cubs.  Thankfully Bears doesn’t look to have a heartbreaking element like Chimpanzee, so you can probably see this one without the fear of turning into a blubbering mess in public.

Here’s the official synopsis for Bears:

In an epic story of breathtaking scale, Disneynature’s upcoming true life adventure “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!
