I received a copy of Disneynature BEARS to facilitate this review; all opinions are my own.
Disneynature BEARS, the newest film in the series takes place in Alaska where we meet Sky and her adorable bear cubs, Amber and Scout. We also have Magnus the bear “king” who’s a highly respected male and Chinook who’s been exiled, but challenges Magnus in an attempt to get back in.
Additional Disneynature Titles
The film crew traveled throughout the wilds of Alaska to follow this little family and to discover how important they are to the ecosystem of the Alaskan wilderness. What they created was a film that’s heartwarming, funny, sad, and tear inducing – a perfect Disneynature film.
Disneynature BEARS Special Features and Extras
Jane Goodall makes a visit to observe the bears, her first experience in doing so. She’s been focused on the cause of the chimpanzees for decades. It’s fun to see her get excited about the bears.[caption id="attachment_103419" align="aligncenter" width="900"] Chinook – Disneynature BEARS
You’ll love the inside look at nature filming in action. The filmmakers share the behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating a film like this. I had the chance to speak to one of the directors after CHIMPANZEE and what they must endure, over months and months of standing in hot, damp, and buggy locations, is insane. All for a few moments on film that will tell the story.
They also prepared a guide to living with bears so that we don’t make an impact on their habitat. As humans keep pushing further and further out into their domain, they’re having to push back and put themselves in harms way to keep their families fed.
