Opening on Friday, April 18, 2014 is the latest film from DisneyNature called Bears. Bears is the story of a young mother bear, Sky, and her two adorable cubs, Amber and Scout. I had the opportunity to screen the movie a few weeks ago (look for my review this Friday) as well as take a trip to the L.A. Zoo where I had the opportunity to see a real bear.

In an epic story of breathtaking scale, Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure Bears showcases a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs, Amber and Scout, are taught life’s most important lessons. Set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, their journey begins as winter comes to an end and the bear family emerges from hibernation to face the bitter cold. The world outside is exciting—but risky—as the cubs’ playful descent down the mountain carries with it a looming threat of avalanches. As the season changes from spring to summer, the brown bears must work hard to find food—ultimately feasting at a plentiful salmon run—while staying safe from rival male bears and predators, including an ever-present wolf. Bears captures the fast-moving action and suspense of life in one of the planet’s last great wildernesses—Alaska!  Directed by Alastair Fothergill (Earth, African Cats and Chimpanzee) and Keith Scholey (African Cats), and narrated by John C. Reilly, Bears arrives in theaters April 18, 2014, to celebrate Earth Day!

With all DisneyNature films a donation is made to help a worthwhile cause. If you see the film, Bears, during opening week (April 18 – 24, 2014), DisneyNature, through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fun, will make a donation to the National Park Foundation to help protect our national parks and the wildlife that calls them home. That means bears like Sky, Amber and Scout will be protected.

In honor of the film’s release, jewelry designer Alex Woo designed a beautiful necklace featuring Sky, Amber and Scout.

“As a mother myself, I instantly bonded with the theme and story of Disneynature’s new film Bears. I was really touched by the universal symbolism and significance of the relationship between mother and child. And in an effort to help preserve our national parks, I designed a special pendant that captures the true beauty and essence of American wildlife. The mother bear Sky watches over her twin cubs Amber and Scout while they look up to her for a shield and protection from the dangers of the wild,” says Alex.

Alex Woo has teamed up with DisneyNature films. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of this stunning necklace (20%) will be donated to the National Parks Foundation.

The pendant is available in Sterling Silver and 14K Gold.

“All mothers share a common bond of wanting to protect and nurture their child as best they can. So that was the story I wanted to tell through my design, said Alex. The final element that I wanted to incorporate was the three snow-capped mountains at Katmai National Park that represent a different goal that Disneynature and the National Park Foundation hope to achieve: wildlife protection, habitat restoration, and conservation research. What is exciting about the National Park Foundation is that they are the gateway to everyone’s lives in experiencing nature; its goal is to connect people to the parks, protect them, and inspire people to learn more about them. I hope that you like it as much as I enjoyed designing it!”

    I live in northern New Hampshire and every year on Earth day since my kids were born we have planed pine tree seeds. My oldest is 26 and my youngest is 17 and we have quite a few trees in my yard (we have 3 acres of land). It is amazing how long it takes for trees to grow into adulthood. The animals and birds seem to love the trees and what better way to give back to the earth than to replenish it with more beautiful trees. We also decorate some of the trees at christmas and it looks wonderful.
