WATCH: Disneynature's 'Bears' Showcases Iconic Grizzly Bear
Disneynature has just announced its latest environmental film titled “Bears,” which documents the thrilling lives of one of the most “iconic” bear species in the world – the grizzly bear.
The film tells the story of two mother bears and their young cubs living in the remote and untamed shores of the Alaskan wild, Just Jared Jr. reports.
“What we’re trying to do is to take people to one of the most beautiful landscapes on our planet – Alaska – and engage them in a really emotional story about one of the most iconic animals on our planet, the grizzly bear,” Alastair Fothergill, the film’s director says in the video.
The film first starts out as winter ends and the bears come out of hibernation. They face all sorts of dangers likes avalanches and wolf-pack predators.
“Grizzly bears are probably one of the most intelligent animals on our planet,” Director Keith Scholey says. “They’re social, gentle creatures.”
For every ticket purchased opening week, a portion of the ticket will benefit our planet and its wild creatures such as the 3 million trees planet in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, the 40,000 acres of coral reef in the Bahamas, the 65,000 acres of savanna in Kenya and the 130,000 acres of chimpanzee habitat in Africa.
“You’ve got great iconic animals in a perfect, scenic backdrop. What more could you ask for?” Fothergill added.
The film will be in theaters for Earth Day 2014.
