Last week, I got was invited by Disney to see the new Disney Nature "Bears". Since the movie comes out April 18, Earth Day, I thought I would give a little sneak peak of what you can expect.
As a Biologist and Animal Behaviorist, I love everything nature and was excited to check it out. I saw the previews in the theatre and instantly fell in love with the sweet little bear family. I felt a roller coaster of emotions watching as Sky, Amber and Scout brave the Alaskan wilderness that they call home.
Sky, and her two cubs, Scout and Amber, Disney Nature Bears does an incredible job showing the struggles these Grizzly's face during their first year of life.
Besides the beautiful scenery that is Alaska, the videographers managed to get up close and personal with the bears while having a few close calls of a little too close. Throughout the movie, I had in the back of my mind that they used long lenses to capture the bears moments when in reality, mere feet separated them at times.
As Sky teaches her cubs the way of the bear world, you really feel for the animals. The struggles Sky and her cubs face to survive for just six months out of the year are particularly eye-opening.
has managed to bring the magic of nature in the theaters and in our homes. The national parks are pristine and not everyone can get to them so Disney brings the parks to us.
