Several years ago, before my daughter was born, I went on an Alaskan cruise with my husband. The scenery was majestic – with breathtaking views of glaciers, the Alaskan wilderness and picturesque towns. During our vacation, we learned about salmon spawning and even saw a brown bear while in port visiting a gold mining town.
I would love to be able to visit Alaska again and show my daughter the beauty of this wonderful state. So when I got an invitation to see a sneak peek of Disneynature’s Bears, I jumped at the chance! Olivia Holt, performer of Bears anthem “Carry On” and Star of Disney Channel’s I Didn’t Do It, hosted this special screening.
In an epic story of breathtaking scale set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, Disneynature’s 2014 big-screen adventure “Bears” follows a bear family as impressionable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons.
Along the way they meet a pair of rather intimidating bears, Magnus and Chinook, as well as Tikaani, a gray wolf who preys on bear cubs and is known as the “thief of the meadow.”
Throughout the movie we see beautiful vistas of Alaska, as the bears eat in the grassy meadow, feast on mussels and rock eels along the coast and search for salmon in the golden pond. Not only is the movie visually stunning and entertaining, but it is educational as well. My daughter really enjoyed watching bears in their natural habitat, learning about hibernation and how they forage for food.
Disneynature Bears is a great movie to watch as a family and would be a fun way to commemorate Earth Day. For every Bears ticket purchased during Opening Week (April 18-24) Disneynature will make a contribution to the National Park Foundation to protect wildlife and wild places across America’s National Park System.

Whenever you do decide to watch Bears, make sure you stay through the credits so that you can hear the entire song of “Carry On” sung by Olivia Holt!
Disneynature’s Bears opens in theaters everywhere on April 18th!

this movie looks so sweet, I want to take my kids to see it.
We can not wait to see this movie it looks so cute!
I want to see this really bad! I love all the disney nature movies, and after growing up in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, I LOVE bears! They are so adorable when they are young.
I want my boys to see this. We love watching the Discovery Channel, but we’ve found that even for my five year old, watching an animal devour another animal is a bit scary for five. So I’m hoping maybe Disney wouldn’t show that with this film.
Looks like it would be a great family movie.. Video was interesting.
