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.

I also love that Disney has continued to invest so much in showcasing nature.  One one of my first visits to Walt Disney World in Florida, we had the chance to visit Discovery Island, which closed in 1999.  It was a zoological park where you could see animals in their natural environment, watch shows, etc. – kind of a precursor to the beautiful Animal Kingdom.

Disney has released their lineup of new movies for 2014 and I’m so excited.  There’s a great mix of live-action and animation, new titles and additions to existing franchises.  I can’t wait to share more with you all as details are continued to be released throughout the year.  And check out my 2013 Disney Movies recap to catch up on last year’s best hits.

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.


Entertainment Roundup: Disneynature's Bears - Earth Day, 2014

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.

Disneynature’s Chimpanzee opens in theaters today.  There’s a cute new clip of Oscar called “Savor the Flavor”.  It doesn’t sound too savory to me, but hey.  I’m sure it’s great if you’re a chimp!

Also, Disneynature has made available an awesome activity pack.  The pack includes 19 pages of connect the dots, trivia and fun facts (like the difference between chimps and apes), “find the animals” game, mazes, and much, MUCH more.  This will definitely keep the kiddos busy for awhile, and they’ll be learning while they have fun!
