Disneynature Bears – Free Activity & Oliva Holt Screening Photos
On Friday, April 18th Disneynature Bears is set to open in theaters nationwide. That’s during spring break week for us so it’s a great time to take the kids to learn about the life of Bears. In this epic story done on a breathtaking scale, this new True Life Adventures showcases a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons. The majestic Alaskan backdrop their journey begins as winter comes to an end and the bears emerge from hibernation to face the bitter cold. While the world outside is exciting it’s still risky and as the cubs’ playfully descent down the mountain there’s a looming threat of avalanches. With each season change the brown bears must work hard to find food, while trying to stay safe from rival male bears and predators, including a persistent wolf. Bears captures the fast-moving action and suspense of life in one of the planet’s last great wildernesses—Alaska!
The film is directed by Alastair Fothergill (“Earth,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee”) and Keith Scholey (“African Cats”), and narrated by John C. Reilly, “Bears” arrives in theaters in time to celebrate Earth Day.
- “Bears” is the fifth theatrical release for Disneynature, the first new Disney-branded film label from The Walt Disney Studios in more than 60 years. The label was launched in April 2008 to bring the world’s top nature filmmakers together to capture a variety of wildlife subjects and stories.
- The first four releases under the Disneynature label—“Earth,” “Oceans,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee”—are among the top five highest grossing feature-length nature films of all time.
- Walt Disney was a pioneer in wildlife documentary filmmaking, producing 13 True Life Adventure motion pictures between 1948 and 1960, including “Seal Island” (1948), “Beaver Valley” (1950), “The Living Desert” (1953) and “Jungle Cat” (1958). The films earned eight Academy Awards®.
To celebrate the upcoming release I wanted to share some free activity sheets and some photos from the special screening held by Olivia Holt on the Disney Studio Lot (which I visited by the way).
