Disneynature Bears roars into theaters today and I’m so excited for a number of reasons.  First, growing up in rural Maine, I’ve seen my fair share of bears (as in, “Oh, look, guys.  There’s a bear in our yard.”) and I’m really looking forward to a movie dedicated to them in their natural environment.  I also have yet to be disappointed by a Disneynature film; the first four releases were Earth, Oceans, African Cats and Chimpanzee, and they all were gorgeous, engaging movies.

There are lots of good things coming to DVD and Blu-ray in the near future.  Plus lots of free, fun movie-related activities, theater releases, and more.  I cover them all in this week’s entertainment roundup.

Disneynature's Chimpanzee

The “See ‘Chimpanzee’, Save Chimpanzees” program has been extended!  From now until May 3rd when you see Disneynature’s “Chimpanzee” in theaters, the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund will make a donation to the Jane Goodall Institute to help protect chimpanzees today and in the future.  “Chimpanzee” was so popular on it’s opening weekend – earning $10.6 million – that Disney decided to extend the donation program a week past it’s original April 26th closing date.
