Walt Disney Studios and Disneynature have provided us with nearly a dozen new hi-res stills from their upcoming film, Bears, which focuses on Sky and her cubs, Scout and Amber. The new stills also introduce us to Chinook and Magnus as well as a wolf who goes by the name of Tikaani.
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! Bears is narrated by John C. Reilly.
As part of Disneynature’s ‘See Bears, Protect our National Parks’ campaign, the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, will make a contribution to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, to protect wildlife and wild places across America’s national park system for each moviegoers that sees Bears during its opening week (April 18-24, 2014).
