Bears is now available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, Digital, HD, Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA), and On-Demand!
I am a huge fan of Disneynature films and when I got a chance to review the new True Life Adventure movie Bears, I was beyond delighted. The film follows the life of a mother bear, Sky, and her two cubs, Scout and Amber for the cub's first year as they fight for survival in the vast wilderness of Alaska.

Bears had me hooked from the first scene.
The Alaska National Park where Bears was filmed is absolutely breathtaking. The photography is so beautifully done that you feel like you are transported to the Alaskan wilderness. I can't even begin to imagine the challenges the photographers faced while filming. Be sure to watch till the credits at the end to get a glimpse of the plane they used in filming and some of their camera set ups. Shooting wolves, bear up close and personal - awe inspiring. Shooting salmon running up stream while standing in frigid water - wow!

I enjoyed listening to John C. Reilly (voice of Ralph in Wreck-It Ralph) narrating the movie. His style is filled with humor and is very entertaining, not your typical stiff documentary narrative. At first I became unfocused with his pronunciation of Chinook but soon got over it. I learned a lot not only about bears and their struggle but about the life cycle of salmon as well which the bears main source of protein.

There was so much to like about the movie. I think my favorite scene is when Scout gets his claw caught in a clam shell and he can't shake it loose. He splashes and struggles and well, it's just too cute.

Is it for the kids? I would say yes. It's approximately 78 minutes long which is great for fidgety kids. Some scenes show bears fighting but there is no blood or dying. No animals mating or any discussion of it are in the film. All the life challenges that arise are dealt with in a family-friendly way.
