Celebrating Earth Day with Bears

Happy Earth Day! 

We are really big fans of going to see the new Disney Nature film that comes out to celebrate. This year did not disappoint! Bears was a super adorable story about Momma Bear, Sky and her 2 baby cubs. John C. Reilly narrates and it's great. If you went opening weekend, proceeds are given to a film related charity so it's a win win!

Last week, I also happened to stumble upon a Q&A at the Apple store with filmmakers Alastair Fothergill, Keith Scholey and DisneyNature ambassador, Dr. Jane Goodall. It was a great experience and fun to get more insight as to how the film was made. If you want to see that panel, Apple will be posting it to their website, where they have tons of sessions like it from all kinds of Apple stores all over the world. How cool is that?

During the panel (as well as a trailer before the film) they gave a sneak peek to the next Disney Nature film, Monkey Kingdom. It was described as the real life Jungle Book, where monkeys rule. It sounds like it's going to be quite the comedy. Can't wait for next year!

Are you a fan of DisneyNature? 

Do you do anything special for Earth Day?

  1. I always worry that Disney will trick me into seeing a cute movie about a cute little bear family and then one of them will end up maimed in a bear trap. My heart can't deal with that!
