1. Disneynature’s BEARS – Disneynature’s BEARS opens in theaters today, April 18, 2014. what a great way to get in the spirit of Earth Day. the movie features a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons. it takes place in majestic Alaska, a backdrop teeming with life. the bear’s journey begins as winter comes to an end and they emerge from hibernation to face the bitter cold.
