Joining the ranks of DisneyNature’s Earth, Oceans, African Cats, and Chimpanzee, the studio has now unveiled a first look at their latest entry – Bears. The latest of their Earth Day offerings, Bears centers on a family of, well, bears, with the film focusing on a family of Alaskan grizzly bears. Co-directed by Alastair Fothergill (who has directed three other DisneyNature features) and Keith Scholey (who also directed African Cats with Fothergill), the film looks to give us a very intimate look inside the life of a typical American bear.
Oh, who are we kidding? Bears looks to give us the dry heaves, the wet sobs, and the sort of in-theater wailing we haven’t experienced since Chimpanzee. Stock up on your tissues now. Get to know DisneyNature’s Bears (and relive the glory of some of the studio’s other films and their indelible animal characters) after the break.
Bears opens on April 18, 2014. [Yahoo! Movies]
