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

Beautiful film.
25 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love Disney's Nature movies! They get SO close and it's amazing! The crew on these kinds of films do such an excellent job. These films are always so beautiful. I believe that Disney's Oceans was just documentary without extras, but in this film, the bears have names and you get little jokes with it. (Little funnies = extras). I enjoy the song that Olivia Holt sings for the movie also. I want Disney Nature to do films on all the animals lol :). Holy Crap! Magnus, the alpha bear, was SO HUGE!!!! They said he weighed 1,000+ pounds. Wow. I am looking forward to seeing Disney's Monkey Kingdom. I haven't seen Chimpanzees, but it is probably just as great as the others.
