Storyline

In an epic story of breathtaking scale, Disneynature's new 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. "Bears" captures the fast-moving action and suspense of life in one of the planet's last great wildernesses-Alaska! Written by Walt Disney Studios

We all have heard about the big bad bear or seen a lovable teddy bear, but do we really know much about these hibernating creatures. In the movie Bears you are taken right up close to see how they come into the world and fight all the obstacles. A mama bear and her two cubs come out and fight for survivor. There are some amazing shots and really takes you front and center in a bears life. You soon realize that these cuddly creatures are softies but can be really tough. I loved this film and it makes me be more in aw in the wonders of nature and the obstacles that all of god's creatures have to over come to survive. A perfect film for kids of all ages or anyone that just want to learn more about bears. The funny man John C. Reilly serves the perfect narrator of some of the most important lessons a bear needs to know.
