The movie follows a year in the life of a bear family with two young cubs. It starts in late winter as the bears wake from hibernation. As the season changes from Spring to Summer, the brown bears must work hard to find food, feasting at a plentiful salmon run, while staying safe from rival male bears and predators, including an ever-present wolf pack.

Disneynature has also released a FREE “BEARS Educator’s Guide” which includes nearly 100 pages of lessons and activities targeted to grades 2 through 6. The lessons are aligned to Next Generation Science Standards, National Science Standards, and common core Language Arts and Math Standards. Download your free copy today at nature.disney.com/bears/educators-guide
