  • Disneynature’s Bears combines sweeping vistas and remarkably intimate wildlife photography to typically stirring effect. show more

  • The Disneynature movies shouldn't be mistaken for traditional documentary, but if they act as a gateway drug for young children to learn more about the animal kingdom — and to open themselves up to more informative non-fiction cinema — then the films are serving a real purpose. show more

  • It has lighthearted moments, but is also suspenseful at the right times. show more

    This is not a film worthy of Disney. Story line is weak, you've seen better on TV. Which is where this firm will land. The narration is particularly bad, geared only for the young viewer. Disney you can do better.
