In beautiful Alaska, a momma bear and her two little cubs wake up from hibernation. The cubs and momma have been in their hibernation hole for months. Momma bear, called Sky in the movie, needs some food.
Sky and her two little cubs, Scout and Amber, come out of their hole to start the perilous but necessary trek to gather food. Amber is the little female cub who is shy and stays around her mother, while Scout is the adventurous cub, who wants to see and learn about everything. The three trek over huge mountains while the spring is coming. Once they arrive at a nearby meadow, Sky is able to get some much-needed sustenance, but she must journey further to get what is really needed, protein.
At the meadow, Scout is surprised to find other bears. He never knew there was such a thing. Excitedly, little Scout looks toward the other bears for a model on how to be a strong, confident bear. Scout doesn’t find one right away, but he has a good mother to support him.
Along the way, Sky, Amber and Scout come across some dangerous things, including one of the largest bears, weighing 1,000 pounds, looking for food. This bear is so hungry he could eat anything, including little bear cubs. At the same time, there is a wolf also on the hunt for Amber and Scout.
In every instance, Sky must be on the lookout for her cubs. In the end, Scout finds out that his mentor is right in front of him, his loving and protective mother.
BEARS is an adorable documentary. Disney has once again given heart, drama, and intrigue to nature that will teach children while they are entertained. Wonderfully crafting a story line, even giving the animals names, Disney has done a great job at keeping viewers fully entertained. BEARS is a beautifully crafted movie that has no real objectionable elements, though very young children may get scared when the bears fight. No blood is shown, however.
