Bears

Now Playing Synopsis: Disneynature's Bears takes us on an educational and entertaining adventure through the Alaskan wilderness, where we follow a fiercely protective mama bear named Sky and her two young cubs Amber and Scout over the course of an entire year. Narrated by John C. Reilly, the film allows us to walk alongside this youthful family as they venture down the mountain in search of sustenance, and encounter a variety of threats including a pair of imposing male bears named Magnus and Chinook, as well as a crafty - and very hungry - wolf named Tikani. As the seasons shift, Sky teaches Amber and Scout the secrets to recognizing threats and foraging for food. Later, as the salmon appear in the local waters, Sky attempts to build her fat reserves for the coming winter. But it won't be easy, because danger lurks over every summit, and the competition for food can be fierce. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: John C.
