Disneynature announced their newest adventure for the big screen, “BEARS“, which will be in theaters April 18, 2014. The program: SEE “BEARS,” PROTECT OUR NATIONAL PARKS, encourages people to see the film during the opening week of April 18-24, 2014. Via the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, Disneynature, will make a contribution to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks. This is done in an effort to protect wildlife and wild places across America’s national park system. The new trailer for “BEARS” is running in theaters and premiered on iTunes yesterday. “BEARS” is directed by Alastair Fothergill, who also directed “Earth,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee”, and Keith Schole, who directed “African Cats”. “BEARS” showcases a year in the life of a bear family as the two impressionable and adorable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons against an incredible Alaskan backdrop.
“We can’t wait to share these bears’ fascinating behaviors and innate curiosity as they navigate a beautiful but challenging world,” said Alan Bergman, president of The Walt Disney Studios. “We are committed to protecting the environment and inspiring Disneynature fans to take part in conservation by joining forces with organizations like the National Park Foundation to preserve the natural world.” Neil Mulholland, president and CEO of the National Park Foundation, said, “We are proud to team with Disney, a dedicated supporter of our national parks, to invite moviegoers everywhere to join us as we work to ensure that our nation’s most treasured places, and all that they protect, thrive for generations to come.”
The movie is an an epic story of breathtaking scale,beginning 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 pair of 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!
You will be able to buy advance tickets for groups of 20 or more will be available later this fall at 1-888-DISNEY6.
